Georgia vs Alabama Player Prop Picks

Georgia hasn’t lost in two years, but that loss came on this stage to a hungry Alabama team. Will history repeat itself? Let’s take a look at some of the best player prop bets from the SEC Championship.

Jalen Milroe Under 39.5 Rushing Yards (-115, BetMGM)

Jalen Milroe has been pretty hit-or-miss on the ground over the latter stretch of the season, exploding for more than 100 yards against both LSU and Auburn but coming in under 40 in the remaining five of his last seven games. Milroe finished three of those games with negative rushing yardage, thanks to the NCAA allowing sacks to impact rushing totals. With that in mind, Georgia’s defense is unlikely to get trampled the same way LSU’s was.

The Bulldogs don’t have as fierce of a defense as they have in other years – sacking Milroe more than a couple times might be a challenge without such an intimidating pass-rush – but the run defense has been steady with 3.9 yards allowed per attempt. A lack of a ferocious pass-rush may help limit Milroe’s rushing yardage, as he can make magic happen when flushed out of the pocket.

With the progress he’s shown as a passer, Milroe appears to be starting to trust his arm as long as he has that time to throw rather than relying exclusively on his legs. 

Brock Bowers Over 58.5 Receiving Yards (-115, BetMGM)

Brock Bowers’ usage has been a bit confusing at times in other seasons (nevermind the fact Georgia won two championships anyway), but it’s been pretty clear that Carson Beck knows who his top offensive weapon is. Bowers had rattled off three consecutive games of 120+ yards before going down with an injury in a win over Vanderbilt. He had only three catches in his first game back but hauled in seven receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown the following week.

Bowers doesn’t appear to be 100 percent. He was held out of Georgia’s win over Georgia Tech with ankle soreness but appears to be on track to play against Alabama. If he’s on the field, it’s safe to assume he’ll be targeted often. Ladd McConkey and Rara Thomas are also less than 100 percent, and someone has to catch the ball.

Two years after Bowers looked like a mismatch for Alabama’s defense with 139 yards and a touchdown, I’m taking the over as long as the health concerns keep it this low.

Jermaine Burton Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+145, BetMGM)

Alabama lacks a bonafide No. 1 receiver, but don’t tell that to Jermaine Burton. Burton is coming off back-to-back 100-yard games, each with a touchdown, and he’s now scored a touchdown in five of his six games with at least three catches this season.

Burton is a big-play receiver, which is likely what puts this line at +145 against a Georgia defense that is better equipped than most to defend against big plays, but those big plays have been hitting more and more as Jalen Milroe finds his footing as a passer. This isn’t the Georgia defense of 2021. Those opportunities will be there for Alabama’s offense, and Burton is a nice value to find the end zone at +145.

Daijun Edwards Under 60.5 Rushing Yards (-115, BetMGM)

Georgia’s tendency for explosive plays makes any under total a bit riskier, but Daijun Edwards could be the running back to target with an under bet.

Edwards was Georgia’s top running back during the heart of the SEC schedule, but he fell behind Kendall Milton in carries in each of the Bulldogs’ last two games. Milton received five more carries than Edwards against Georgia Tech last weekend and rewarded Georgia with 156 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Edwards’ efficiency also took a dip in both games, averaging 3.7 yards per carry.

As Milton takes on a larger role, this could be another game in which Edwards takes a bit of a backseat. The running game might also see slightly less usage now that some of the receivers who were missing against Georgia Tech will be back in the fold for Carson Beck.
