The 2024 College Football Playoff Championship Game is finally here as the No. 1 Michigan Wolverines face the No. 2 Washington Huskies at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Michigan is a 4.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, but figuring out how the game will get to the final score is likely the best way to be a winner in the props market.

Before the title game kicks off at NRG Stadium in Houston, there are several props to consider courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook. We’ll share the full list of props for the title game and give a our favorites heading into the matchup below:

Blake Corum first TD scorer (+340)

Michigan is going to take advantage of the opportunity to catch Washington’s defense on their heels and hand Corum the ball in play after play on their first drive. After JJ McCarthy’s shaky start to the Rose Bowl (an interception that was called back in Michigan’s favor), the Wolverines may opt to allow the offense to adjust while they do what they know best — run the damn ball.

Michigan -2.5 first half (-115)

Michigan dominated the first half against Alabama, and I think we’ll see something similar happen here. It will take a moment for Washington to adjust to the stifling Michigan defense, and the Wolverines could grab a defensive score in the first half to separate themselves. I think that Michigan heads into the half up at least a field goal.
