Max Duggan Higher than 237.5 Yards Passing

  • Michigan has faced three offenses that can spread them out and get creative with how they throw it.
  • Purdue threw for 366 yards, Ohio State threw for 349, and Maryland threw for 269.
  • Duggan has thrown for higher than 237 yards in 75% of his starts.
  • Michigan has a top-end rush defense and has limited teams to 2.9 yards per carry this season.

Quentin Johnston Higher than 69.5 Yards Receiving

  • To begin the year, Johnston couldn’t get into a rhythm of this offense, but they started to move him around and he had a noteworthy end to the season.
  • According to Sports Info Solutions, from Week 5 on, Johnston averaged 3.8 yards per route run.
  • Johnston had higher than 69.5 yards receiving in six of his final seven games that he played the entire game.
  • You’ll need NFL-caliber players to win against the physical style of play with Michigan, and Johnston is projected to be a Day 1 pick.

C.J. Stroud Higher than 277.5 Yards Passing 

  • Ohio State will be the most talented offense that Georgia has played, and with their talent at wide receiver, Stroud can hit higher than 277.5 yards passing.
  • Stroud has thrown for more than 300 yards in every career loss, and Georgia is projected to win this game.
  • NFL talent is how you beat this Georgia defense, and when Bryce Young had Jameson Williams and John Metchie, he threw for 421 yards. 
  • Ohio State has three NFL-caliber wide receivers, and it becomes a matchup game for who can win in their matchup.

Marvin Harrison Jr. Higher than 87.5 Yards Receiving

  • According to Sports Info Solutions, Harrison Jr. averages 3.3 yards per route run.
  • Harrison Jr. is the best wide receiver in the country and will have to beat his matchup for Stroud to surpass 277.5 yards passing.
  • Georgia has faced a few offenses with NFL talent at QB and out wide, and they do big plays are made.
  • Marquise Brown, Jameson Williams, Justin Jefferson, Terrace Marshall, and Jaylen Waddle hit higher than this mark.

Brock Bowers Higher than 56.5 Yards Receiving

  • The attention for Ohio States' defense will be on stopping the run, and Bowers will be able to find room to work.
  • Ohio State has allowed three different tight ends over 40 yards receiving.
  • Bowers is the best weapon for Georgia’s passing attack, and I believe volume will go his way.
