If the CFP National Championship Game odds prove correct, it will be the first time the Wolverines have won it all since 1997. The Huskies claim two National Championships, but both are contested.

If Washington can win next Monday night, it’ll be their first indisputable National Title in program history. Both programs enter the game as undefeated conference champions who dispatched a one-loss CFP team in the semifinals.

Michigan was able to cover the 2-point spread offered at legal online football betting sites, besting the fourth-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide by seven points in the Rose Bowl.

Texas was favored by four against Washington in the Sugar Bowl, but the Huskies covered and outright won the game by a final score of 37-31.

CFP betting lines for the Championship Game suggest that the final score will be Wolverines 29 – Huskies 25. Betting on the CFP Championship isn’t limited to game lines because there are dozens of NCAAF prop bets that cover most statistical achievements.

A quick glance at the quarterback props reveals that Washington Huskies’ QB Michael Penix Jr. is in line for a big day. Penix’s current over/under totals suggest that he’ll throw for 291 yards, 2 touchdowns, and at least 1 interception.

Huskies wide receiver Rome Adunze is forecasted to bring in the lion’s share of Penix’s production, with props taking action on either side of 89.5 yards.

Michigan running back Blake Corum is expected to carry the load for the Wolverines and is projected for 105 yards on the ground.

Alternate CFP Betting Lines

Shopping around at other legal online sportsbooks has exposed some variance in the National Championship betting lines for gamblers looking to shave a point here or there.

BetOnline is offering a spread of 4.5, which really only removes the potential for a push and ensures that all wagers are either winners or losers. They are offering an over/under of 56.0, which introduces the potential for the total to hit perfectly.

The +167 moneyline that BetOnlineAG is offering for Washington will pay an additional $0.07 per dollar wagered if the Huskies win.
