The biggest bet of the day came in on the biggest game of the day, as one bettor placed a $881,600 bet on Georgia to cover, buying a point and a half at DraftKings to +7.5 (-139).

Alabama stormed back in the second half and won 41-24.

If Georgia covered, the bet would have won $634,244. The Dawgs had a 24-20 lead at the half, and had a greater than 80% chance to cover +7.5, according to The Action Network app’s win probability feature.

Alabama opened as a 6-point favorite, dipped all the way to -3.5 upon news that Nick Saban tested positive for COVID-19, then got back to -6 when he tested negative three straight days and was allowed to coach on Saturday.

A $269K parlay at PointsBet was among the biggest plays of the day, as well.

Eight of the nine legs in the mostly-moneyline parlay, but UNC’s comeback against Florida State fell short in a 31-28 loss to kill it at 8 of 9. The parlay would have net $681K.

UNC had a 4% chance to win after trailing 31-7 at halftime, per our live win probability feature. The Tar Heels got into Seminoles territory with less than a minute to go, but couldn’t convert fourth-and-9.

Here are the legs:

  1. Temple ML (-475)
  2. Miami ML (-500)
  3. Clemson ML (-2500)
  4. West Va ML (-1667)
  5. Notre Dame ML (-715)
  6. Marshall ML (-525)
  7. UNC ML (-500)
  8. Virginia Tech ML (-475)
  9. Auburn +16.5 (-910)
