The CFP National Championship takes place on Monday 9 January 2023 with the Georgia Bulldogs facing the TCU Horned Frogs.
Georgia had entered the college football season as the 4/1 third favourites to defend their crown, with only Alabama and Ohio State having shorter odds.
Meanwhile, Texas Christian University were massive 200/1 outsiders. They were also underdogs going into their 51-45 semi-final victory over the Michigan Wolverines on New Year’s Eve.
Here are some of the 2023 CFP National Championship Player Props we like:
Stetson Bennett: Over 277.5 Passing Yards 20/23
Stetson Bennett will be the first Quarterback to reach back-to-back CFP finals since A.J. McCarron led Alabama to back-to-back titles in 2011–12. The 25-year-old is 177 passing yards away from becoming the first 4,000-yard passer in program history and 71 passing yards short of the school’s single-season record. He should break both of these records with ease on Monday night.
Expect another stellar performance from Bennett in what could turn out to be a shootout between these two teams. TCU also played very well against Texas and Michigan’s stellar run games this season.
Anytime Touchdown Scorer: Brock Bowers 8/15
Just about a certainty to score in the CFP National Championship game in which we expect to be a high-scoring affair. Quarterback Stetson Bennett III loves his Tight End and it’s easy to see why. Brock Bowers has great hands and great movement and is an excellent target in the redzone.
Bowers has 6 receiving and 3 rushing touchdowns in his 14 games this season and has been targeted 4+ times in each of his past two games.
Anytime Touchdown Scorer: Quentin Johnston 10/11
The 6′ 4″ 215-pound receiver is widely-expected to go in the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft and he’ll want to go out on a bang. Quentin Johnston has a lot of strength and speed to put fear into the Georgia defence, having racked up 1,088 yards and six receiving scores on 59 receptions this season.
At almost even money, we love this price on Johnston to find the end zone.
Max Duggan: Over 31.5 Rushing Yards 5/6
The TCU Quarterback has rushed for 167 yards and 3 TDs over the past two games. What’s more, Georgia don’t like to blitz and averaged just 2.14 sacks per game this season. In games where Max Duggan has been sacked less than four times, he’s rushed for an average of 49.4 yards.
Running Back Kendre Miller is Questionable for the final with a sprained MCL picked up in the victory over Michigan. This should lead to some more designed runs for Duggan. Expect the Quarterback to do whatever it takes to get first downs and scores, and that will including scrambling around in the pocket and rushing for yards.
