Aside from these top bets, we like Donovan Edwards. In big games like this, breaking tendencies is crucial, and Edwards, with his potential for a significant rushing total and scoring touchdowns, is an intriguing option for bettors. Edwards’ rushing total is 25.5 yards, and he sits at +185 to score a touchdown.

Switching to Michael Penix Jr., the focus isn’t just on his passing. His rushing ability, especially if Michigan plays man-to-man coverage, is also drawing attention. This dual-threat capability makes Penix a valuable proposition in various betting scenarios. Take a look at his rushing props as they become available.

Looking at game props, some notable ones include:

  • Michigan to win by 1 to 6 points (+375)
  • Michigan to win and over 48.5 total points (+120)
  • Washington to score first (+110)
  • Washington as the first team to 20 points (+140)
  • Game going to overtime (+875)

These props offer a range of scenarios that bettors are considering, from tight scorelines to potential overtime thrillers.

For those looking for a more daring bet, taking Washington with a 7-point advantage is a bold move at +280. It’s a less popular bet, but upsets and surprises are always on the table in college football.
