The rematch between LSU and Alabama for the 2012 BCS National Championship is so close that there are odds that favor both teams. According to SB Nation's odds partner, OddsShark, both Alabama and LSU are favored over the spectrum of betting lines — LSU by a point according to Bovada, and Alabama by two or 2.5 points, according to other sites. And no one thinks this is going to be a shootout, as evidenced by over/unders hovering around 40 points.
But while you can find lines favoring both teams, the BCS National Championship Game prop bets are where the fun really is. Think Alabama's going to score first and on a touchdown pass? You can get 11-2 odds on that. Want the over/under on total turnovers? It's 3.5. Do you think LSU will win by 31 to 36 points? You can get staggering 80-1 odds on that, better even than the odds for LSU winning by at least 43 points (66-1).
But the best prop bet of all is called the "Race to 10 Points": Alabama is -125 to get to 10 points first, and LSU is -115 to do the same, but if you believe that neither team will reach that plateau, you can get "neither" for +3000.
