The 2021 College Football National Championship game pits two SEC rivals against one another as the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Alabama Crimson Tide on Monday night.

Here's three of the best prop bets for this Championship showdown, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Georgia vs Alabama Prop Bets Tonight

1. George Pickens - Receiving Yards: Over 34.5 (-110)

Georgia wide receiver George Pickens has fought hard to overcome his ACL injury and be healthy enough to contribute down the stretch. The dynamic pass-catcher showcased his ability to rack up yards after the catch when he hauled in 2 passes for 41 yards against the Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship. With a few more weeks of conditioning under his belt, Pickens will have an opportunity to find the open gaps given the defense should be focused on shutting down tight end Brock Bowers. After all, he will only need 2-3 catches to eclipse 34 receiving yards. That could happen in the first half alone.

2. Bryce Young - Rushing Yards: Over 12.5 (-110)

This number simply seems too low. Alabama quarterback Bryce Young isn't known for his rushing capabilities, but he has proven that he isn't afraid to tuck the ball ad run if need be. The Heisman Trophy winner carried the football three times against Georgia the last time these two teams met and totaled 40 yards on the ground. Keep in mind that running back Brian Robinson Jr. is also coming off a game in which he ran the ball 27 times. Look for Young to take some of the pressure off by taking the ball himself against a defense that was unable to sack him in the SEC Championship.

3. Slade Bolden: Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+210)

Bettors looking to get a bit more bang for their buck should target wide receiver Slade Bolden when looking at anytime touchdowns scorer props. While Bolden is by no means a household name, he has come on strong when it matters the most. The junior has caught a touchdown pass in two of Alabama's last three games and torched Georgia for 54 receiving yards on 5 receptions in early December. The Crimson Tide are going to have to be sneaky facing a defense that hardly ever gives up points in the red zone. Doubling your money if Young finds his slot receiver in the end zone comes with great value.
