Don’t have a horse in the race for the College Football Playoff Championship between Ohio State and Alabama? Worry not.

There are ways to get invested, and if you’re willing to put money behind it, some wacky ones at that.

It starts with potential first-round draft pick Jaylen Waddle. The Alabama receiver has missed the last seven games with an ankle injury and is considered a game-time decision to play. Odds are with him that he’ll step onto the Hard Rock Stadium field in Miami Gardens, Fla.

Bettors can also put money on which word, Heisman or Lawrence (as in Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence), will be said first in the broadcast. Or whether Clemson coach Dabo Swinney’s or former Ohio State Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer’s first names will be invoked before the other.

Here is a collection of prop bets involving the broadcast and the game at hand that kicks off Monday night at 6 p.m. MST on ESPN.
