Vegas reveals odds for title game MVP ahead of Ohio State-Alabama showdown
The countdown until the College Football Playoff National Championship Game set for Monday night is running short, and Vegas-watchers are as excited as anyone.
While the game between Ohio State and Alabama isn’t affording much debate in the way of the spreads and money lines, for those looking to take a chance there are a host of player props to keep busy.
An underdog since the matchup was set, the Buckeyes opened as a 7.5-point underdog to the Tide, and that number has since grown to 8.5. It is a championship game, so anything can happen, and should Ohio State put up another fine showing, who knows.
Bama quarterback Mac Jones leads the action for the game MVP, sitting at +350, with OSU quarterback Justin Fields just behind Jones at +450. Other notable MVP props have Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith and Najee Harris both at +500. Meanwhile, do not overlook Trey Sermon and Jaylen Waddle at +1000.
