- The first score has come in less than 5 minutes in five of Alabama’s last 7 games, giving great value for the corresponding (-114) game prop odds on Saturday.
- Week 8’s matchup between San Diego State and the Air Force features two of the NCAA’s Top 15 defenses, giving value to the (+115) scoreless quarter prop.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Week 8 college football slate features a handful of game props currently being offered by online sportsbooks that hold a good amount of value for sports bettors.
Alabama Crimson Tide Vs. Tennessee Volunteers – First Score Under 5 Minutes (-114)
For this week’s SEC showdown between Alabama and Tennessee, one of the best game props available is the first score time game prop. Internet oddsmakers are expecting the game to be high-scoring, with a points total set at 68.
Tennessee has had struggles on the defensive side of the ball, ranking 53rd in the nation in opponent’s points per game with 22.9. On the other hand, Alabama has had no trouble finding the end zone in 2021, scoring an average of 45 points per game – the best in the NCAA.
The first score has occurred in less than 5 minutes in five out of Alabama’s 7 games in 2021. Alabama should be able to find the end zone early and often in this one, so the (-114) odds for the first score to occur in less than 5 minutes are actually fairly inviting.
San Diego State Aztecs Vs. Air Force Falcons – There Will Be A Scoreless Quarter (+115)
This week’s Mountain West matchup between San Diego State and the Air Force has the lowest points total of any college football game currently being offered on Bovada at 39 points.
There were two scoreless quarters in San Diego State’s win over San Jose State last week where online sportsbooks had the points total set at a similar 41 points for that one.
San Diego State ranks ninth in the NCAA in points allowed per game with 16, while the Air Force is not far behind – they rank 11th in the NCAA in the same category, with 16.29 points allowed per game.
This game will shape up to be a defense and field position battle, making the (+115) odds for there to be a scoreless quarter quite valuable.
Washington State Cougars Vs. BYU Cougars – Special Teams Or Defensive Touchdown To Be Scored (+190)
Washington State has surrendered the sixth-most turnovers in the NCAA with 12 (including 9 interceptions and 3 fumbles).
The total is set at a reasonable 56.5, meaning both defenses and special teams units will be key to the outcome of the game.
BYU has picked off 7 passes and forced 7 fumbles so far in 2021. This is the type of game prop that will stay winnable until the final whistle, bringing plenty of value to the (+190) betting odds.
