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.
