Inconsistent Receivers Top Odds Boards For National Championship

  • Brock Bowers and Quentin Johnson have the highest receiving yards O/Us in the National Championship Game.
  • Bowers has 62.5 as his O/U, which is higher than anyone else on Georgia.
  • Johnston only has four games over his O/U of 83.5 yards on the season.

LOS ANGELES - Talented catchers of the football will take center stage in the College Football Playoff National Championship game on Monday.

Notably, one of the most talented catchers of the football in the game – according to the online sportsbooks – isn’t even a WR.

Total Receiving Yards - Brock Bowers Odds

  • Over 62.5 -115
  • Under 62.5 -115

Brock Bowers, the TE for Georgia – and presumptive contender for first TE off the board in the NFL Draft – has the second highest receiving yards O/U in the game.

Bowers has only gone over 62.5 receiving yards in five of his 14 games played this season. His receiving production tends to come in bursts.

He has two games with more than 120 receiving yards, and six games with less than 40 receiving yards.

Bowers might be being overrated on the college football betting markets by virtue of his explosive potential and his big name as a prospect.

This O/U is definitely not one that he hits regularly, but he did hit 64 yards in the Playoff Semifinal against Ohio State.

Total Receiving Yards - Quentin Johnston

  • Over 83.5 -115
  • Under 83.5 -115

The only man with a higher yards O/U than Bowers in this game is Quentin Johnston of the TCU Horned Frogs.

Johnston put up more than 1000 yards in his 13 games played this season, but he’s also an explosive receiver, rather than a reliable one.

The bulk of Johnston’s yards came in four games:

  • 206 yards vs. Kansas
  • 180 yards vs. Oklahoma State
  • 139 yards vs. Kansas State
  • 163 yards vs. Michigan

Outside of those four games, Johnston has zero games over 83.5 receiving yards on the season.

Much like Bowers, it’s difficult to set a line for a player who is so explosive at such intermittent times.

It should be noted that the Kansas State game and the Michigan game were his last two games – he could be entering the form of his life right now, or he could be a dud in the Championship game.

The National Championship Game takes place at 7:30 p.m. EST on Monday, Jan. 9. 2023.
