- Georgia is favored at -170 odds to score first during the 2022-23 National Championship.
- The first exact score outcome has -105 odds for a GA TD and +200 odds for a TCU TD.
- Alternative lines for the CFP Final give TCU +180 odds to cover a +5 point spread.
LOS ANGELES – As the Georgia Bulldogs are 12-point favorites to win the National Championship, there are many ways to bet on scoring props and alternative lines for both the Bulldogs and the TCU Horned Frogs.
During TCU’s semifinal win over the Michigan Wolverines, the Horned Frogs scored the first two TDs, including a pick-six that happened only six minutes and 18 seconds into the game. During the Peach Bowl, Georgia did not score until their second possession, with three minutes and 15 seconds remaining in the first.
National Championship Odds for First Scoring Team
- TCU +130
- Georgia -170
During the Horned Frogs’ dominant 2022-23 season, they were the team to score first in 10 of their 14 games played, including the last two. Out of those games, eight of those first scores were touchdowns and only two of the scores were from field goals.
Exact Outcome for First Score of National Championship Odds
- TCU Touchdown +200
- Georgia Touchdown -105
- TCU Field Goal +625
- Georgia Field Goal +575
- TCU Any Other Score +5000
- Georgia Any Other Score +5000
Georgia had also started their games hot during the 2022-23 season, scoring first in eight of their games with a TD/FG ratio of 8/2 for those first scores as well. Since both teams have been efficient in scoring first, there is more value in TCU’s +200 odds for legal betting on the National Championship.
Alternative Line Betting on the CFP Championship
- TCU +25 (-400)
- Georgia -25 (+275)
- TCU +15 (-150)
- Georgia -15 (+115)
- TCU +10 (+115)
- Georgia -10 (-150)
- TCU +5 (+180)
- Georgia -5 (-245)
- TCU +2.5 (+275)
- Georgia -2.5 (-400)
- TCU -1.5 (+375)
- Georgia +1.5 (-600)
Legal sports betting sites have odds that could help players win big on TCU covering these alternative lines, even if they lose the game. Betting on the Horned Frogs to lose by no more than five points would win $180 from a $100 wager. Betting on Georgia to win SU AT -440 would only win $22.73 on a $100 wager in comparison.
The Horned Frogs have covered the spread in ten of their games this season and covered against the Wolverines in the Fiesta Bowl.
Even though they are the only undefeated team remaining, the Bulldogs have been average covering the spread during the 2022-23 season with a 7-7 record. This has been a result of the Bulldogs being favored by too many points, which would be the case once again against TCU during the National Championship.
