The Crimson Tide rolled their way to a 12-1 record this season. Surprisingly, the Tide’s only loss of the year came against the Auburn Tigers 14-26. However, it was this loss that led many players doubting Bama’s right to this year’s college football playoffs. Specifically, many bettors felt that the NCAA was purposely favoring Alabama over UCF, who finished the year undefeated, in order to help out the postseason’s ratings. It was a mild conspiracy theory but one grounded in reality. However, most people’s complaints about this year’s playoff seeding were wiped away once New Year rolled around and Alabama absolutely light up Clemson on the national stage. Now Nick Saban’s squad looks to do the same on the biggest stage in college football.

Comparatively, the Bulldogs are putting up 36.3 points on offense while their defense is allotting 13.2. With this in mind, it’s clear that this year’s national title match will be on for the history books.
The Georgia Bulldogs had a great season this year as the program finished 13-1 overall. This led to a 1st place finish in the SEC – East, earning Georgia ta ticket to the SEC Championship game.

However, Georgia was able to avenge that loss in the SEC Title game by picking up a 28-7 win over Auburn. The Bulldogs finished the year with a 3-game winning streak. Nevertheless, the football betting lines NCAA will favor Bama in this Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Georgia Bulldogs championship matchup.
