After going 2/4 (we hit on Michael Young Jr. receiving yards and Bower’s TD) in the CFP Semifinals, I’m back with a plan to attack the player props in the CFP title game on Monday night.
In the long-expected Alabama vs Georgia Championship matchup, it’s hard to find value in the traditional market with the line so tight and the public money heavily concentrated on the Crimson Tide.
With that in mind, there’s certainly value to be had with some players in the prop market, let’s get to the picks below.

All odds as of January 10th at FanDuel Sportsbook
Jahleel Billingsley Over 16.5 Receiving Yards
After showing flashes of brilliance as a sophomore, it’s been a tough season for Jahleel Billingsley.
He spent training camp in Nick Saban’s doghouse and wasn’t on the field very much during the meat of Bama’s season. Lately though, his snap count has gone up in the absence of John Metchie – and he could have a breakout coming against Georgia.
Fans might remember former Alabama TE OJ Howard having a breakout national championship performance against Clemson, and I think Billingsley will make an impact in this game.
Georgia’s STAR corner Latavious Brini (as well as Ameer Speed) that covers the slot would be the one “weaker” point of the Bulldogs defense – and with the total for Billingsley set at just 16.5 yards it should only take two or three grabs for the uber-athletic TE to go over this total.

George Pickens to Record Most Receiving Yards
FanDuel is offering a special prop among players on both teams to record the most receiving yards. I absolutely love taking a shot on George Pickens +1000 in this spot.
Expect Jameson Williams to face bracket coverage and double teams that should eliminate the big plays he killed the Dawgs with in the SEC title game.
According to Georgia insiders, Pickens is as healthy as he’s looked since the injury and is a full-go after ramping up for the final month of a half of the season.

He should have multiple chances to beat Alabama over the top – especially with the Crimson Tide likely having to roll out true freshman Kool-Aid McKinstry if Jalyn Armour-Davis is out once again.
Pickens had two grabs for 41 yards in the SEC title game, and with another month of conditioning under his belt I’m expecting a monstrous effort from the Jr. as he tries to propel Georgia to a win.

|Player||Anytime Touchdown Scorer||First Touchdown Scorer|
|Brian Robinson Jr.||-120||+750|
Pickens Should Find the End Zone Too
As mentioned above, I think this is a game Pickens re-introduces himself as a star to the CFB world. With his size and physicality at 6’3 and 200 pounds, he should be a go-to in the red zone for Stetson Bennett.
While Bowers was the focal point of Georgia’s passing offense in the first matchup against the Tide (recording 10 catches and over 120 yards), Pickens should step up if Bowers faces enhanced coverage.

50-50 balls become 70-30 balls when Pickens is in the same area code, and I like him to find the end zone on Monday night.

Longshots Worth a Play
In the same realm of big red zone targets, you can’t get any larger than Georgia’s mutant secondary TE. Darnell Washington is 6’8 and nearly 270 pounds – an absolute mauler as a blocker and a terrifying sight for defenses with the ball in his hands.

His one touchdown this season came against Bama in the SEC title game, and I think he has a good chance to snag another one should Georgia find themselves in the red zone.
- Darnell Washington anytime TD +750 0.5U, 1st TD 0.25U
On the Alabama side, a young receiver in Javon Baker might be worth a small shot in both the anytime and first touchdown markets. Baker, a Georgia native, has been talked up a bunch by both Nick Saban and some Crimson Tide insiders as standing out and stepping up since Metchie went out for the year.

Baker was known around the recruiting circuit for his excellent route running and really strong ball skills – as you can see he attacks the ball well to shield out DBs when going up for the catch. With Bryce Young needing another option to standout with Williams likely blanketed, this could be a spot Baker makes a name for himself on the biggest stage.
