- Boise State’s Jonah Dalmas, the NCAA’s leading placekicker, has (+600) odds to be the first scorer in the Broncos’ Week 4 matchup against Utah State.
- The Nebraska Cornhuskers have not allowed a touchdown of 50 yards or more in 2021, as they look to maintain that trend against Michigan State, with (-115) odds for the longest touchdown to be less than 54.5 yards in this matchup.
MADISON, Wis. – Week 4 of the NCAA football season has arrived, meaning sports bettors are eagerly anticipating this week’s slate. One of the most exciting ways to bet on college football is through game props and this week there are three game props, in particular, that stand out as great value bets to place.
Notre Dame Fighting Irish Vs. Wisconsin Badgers
No Defensive Or Special Teams Touchdown (-278)
Neither Notre Dame nor Wisconsin has scored a defensive or special teams touchdown in 2021 and Wisconsin has not scored a defensive or special teams touchdown since 2019.
The points total set by online bookmakers for the game is set at 46 points, indicating a low-scoring game. It is likely both offenses will value ball security and field position in this matchup, taking fewer risks and creating fewer opportunities for big defensive plays.
If sports bettors are looking for a safer game prop option, this is a great play at (-278) odds.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Vs. Michigan State Spartans
Longest Touchdown – UNDER 54.5 Yards (-115)
The Nebraska Cornhuskers have yet to allow a touchdown of over 50 yards in 2021, including last week against a high-powered Oklahoma offense – a game in which they held Spencer Rattler and the Sooners to just 23 points.
The Spartans have scored a few long touchdowns on the year but against much lesser competition in Northwestern and Youngstown State. Their longest score last week against Miami (FL) was 39 yards.
This is a rare even-money game prop and this Big 10 showdown may be a low-scoring, defensive-minded affair, providing value for those who take the UNDER.
Boise State Broncos Vs. Utah State Aggies
First Score – Boise State Field Goal (+600)
So far in 2021, Boise State placekicker Jonah Dalmas leads the entire NCAA in field goals made per game with 3.67, a full field goal per game above the second placekicker.
Dalmas has converted on 13 of his 14 field goal attempts in 2021. Utah State has allowed opponents a total of 5 successful field goal attempts so far this season.
Sports bettors will be hard-pressed to find a plus-money game prop that has as high a likelihood of cashing as this one does and at (+600), it may provide the best value of all college football game props being offered by online sportsbooks this week.
