In an exciting (and mildly surprising) conclusion to the college football season, the upstart TCU Horned Frogs (13-1) take on the Georgia Bulldogs (14-0) in the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T on Monday night. Kickoff from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET. In the first of the New Year's Eve semifinal matchups, the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl, TCU defeated Michigan, 51-45, while in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, Georgia survived a missed field goal by Ohio State and won 42-41.

The teams have meet four times prior to Monday night's matchup, all of which have been won by Georgia. The most recent meeting was in the 2016 Liberty Bowl, a 31-23 Bulldogs victory. The Horned Frogs are 9-3 against the spread, while the Bulldogs are 7-6 ATS in 2022. Caesars Sportsbook has Georgia as a 12.5-point favorite with the over/under at 62.5.

Before you submit your parlay for this championship game, check out the recommendations from the SportsLine Projection Model and SportsLine college football analyst Eric Cohen.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past six-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $2,500 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

Cohen finished one game above .500 with his picks on the season, including an impressive 17-8 run over the final two weeks of the season. His SEC conference parlays generated more than 11 units of profit for bettors who followed his selections. Thus far this bowl season, he's 17-16 with one more big game to go.

One of the championship game picks the model and Cohen are high on: the under 62.5. Four of TCU's last six games were under this total, while 11 of 14 Georgia games fell below 62.5 total points.

You ABSOLUTELY need to see their bowl parlays before locking in any of your own.
