ATLANTA – The SEC Championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs has a handful of prop betting lines that should pique the interest of bettors.
First Quarter Total: O/U 10.5 Points
Both the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs are among the top offensive units in the country, not only overall but specifically in the first quarter of games as well. Despite both teams nearly averaging 10 points per game themselves, online sportsbooks have the total set relatively low for their standards.
First Quarter Total Odds
- OVER 10.5 EVEN
- UNDER 10.5 -130
The Bulldogs average 10.7 points per first quarter this season while the Crimson Tide average 9.5 themselves. Both rank within the top 10 in the entire country, however, both teams are good on the defensive end as well.
Georgia allows just 2.0 points per first quarter while Alabama gives up 4.3 points on average. Bettors need to decide whether offenses or defenses will reign supreme in this game as both teams have the power to dominate the game on both sides of the ball.
Alabama Crimson Tide Team Total: O/U 23.5 Points
The Georgia defense allows just 6.92 points per game, far fewer than the next best in college football (Clemson: 15.0 ppg). They allowed just nine touchdowns on the season, 12 fewer than the next best team and also only gave up seven field goals, the second-fewest in the country.
The defense is given favorable odds to keep Alabama below their team total.
Alabama Crimson Tide Team Total
- OVER 23.5 +110
- UNDER 23.5 -145
The Crimson Tide was only held under this number once this season but something will have to give, as the most points Georgia has allowed in a game this year has been 17. The Bulldogs faced four teams that were ranked at the time of the matchup and held them to an average of 6.5 points per game while Alabama faced four ranked teams and averaged 39.75 points per game.

As arguably the two top teams in the country, this will be both teams’ toughest matchup yet but with just how dominant Georgia’s defense has been on a weekly basis it’s tough to imagine anybody scoring four or more times against them.
First Quarter Spread: UGA -0.5
Sometimes the best way to win bets on college football betting sites is to use their own odds against them. For the first-quarter spread, they’re allowing bettors to do so with some added value.
First Quarter Spread
- Georgia Bulldogs -0.5 -115
- Alabama Crimson Tide +0.5 -115
Alabama’s first-quarter team total is set at 3.5 points with -135 odds favoring the UNDER. This shows that sportsbooks are fairly confident the Crimson Tide wills core a field goal at best in the opening frame. Georgia’s first-quarter team total is set at 6.5 with -135 odds in favor of the OVER.
The odds indicate a belief that the Bulldogs will win the first quarter by three or more points, but are still offering a -115 line on a half-point spread at the same time. Even if this bet doesn’t hit, it’s worth the risk due to the added value.
The game will start at 4 p.m. EST on Saturday and can be seen on CBS.
