The most pivotal weekend of the college football season to date is on the horizon. From the AAC, to the ACC, to the SEC, to the Sun Belt, all of the conferences in the Football Bowl Subdivision will crown their champions this weekend via conference championship games.
Not only will there be plenty of action on the field, conference championship weekend stands to be a big weekend for college football betting. Sportsbooks will have plenty on offer for those who want to boost their bankroll while following all of the excitement. That includes Fanduel Sportsbook, which is offering a number of intriguing player props on a few of the top games on the slate.
Here’s a rundown of what they are offering.
Odds from FanDuel as of Friday, December 18 at 7:45 AM ET
First Scorer and Anytime Scorer Props Available for ACC & Big Ten Title Games
Touchdown scorer props can be another way to pad the pockets while following the games, and Fanduel will have touchdown scorer props for at least two games.
The Big Ten title game between Northwestern and Ohio State could be dominated by the defenses. But a few touchdowns should be expected, so the first scorer and anytime scorer props are worth consideration.
In the first scorer category, all of the best odds belong to the Buckeyes, who are heavily favored to win the Big Ten title and secure a place in the College Football Playoff.
Big Ten Championship Game First Touchdown Scorer & Anytime Touchdown Scorer Odds
• Justin Fields (Ohio State) +350/-210
• Master Teague III (Ohio State) +440/-210
• Garrett Wilson (Ohio State) +490/-155
• Chris Olave (Ohio State) +550/-115
• Jeremy Ruckert (Ohio State) +750/+120
• Trey Sermon (Ohio State) +1100/+200
• Ohio State defense/special teams +1500/+260
The best odds for a Northwestern player are for receiver Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Bowman, who comes in at +1600 to be the first scorer and +250 to score a touchdown anytime. Chiaokhiao-Bowman leads Northwestern with four receiving touchdowns. Northwestern’s 22 touchdowns this season have been scored by a dozen different players, a stat for bettors to keep in mind.
The first meeting this season between Clemson and Notre Dame featured nine touchdowns by seven different scorers, with Fighting Irish running back Kyren Williams running for three touchdowns in a 47-40 double-overtime win. Several of those scorers feature prominently in the scorer props for their ACC championship matchup in Charlotte, along with Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence missed that thriller due to a positive COVID result but has 16 career rushing touchdowns, including six this season.
