NCAA Football Betting Odds:
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Tide finished the regular season with an undefeated record to maintain their stake as the No. 1 team in the nation. All in all Bama didn’t have the toughest schedule in the country. They did however make the best of it and at the end of the day, the Tide was able to steamroll all of their competition including No. 16 Mississippi State and No. 3 LSU. Facing No 5 Georgia in this year’s SEC Championship Game, the NCAA football betting odds are still pegging Bama as a massive favorite. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that this will be a tough matchup for both sides. Right now Alabama is scoring 49.0 per game while Georgia is putting up 40.1. Defensively the Crimson Tide also has the advantage as they’re only giving up 13.8 per game while Georgia allots 17.2.
Players to Watch: Tua Tagovailoa (3,189 passing yards, 36 TD, 2 INT), Damien Harris (117 rushing yards, 7 TD, 6.1 AVG), and Jerry Jeudy (1,079 receiving yards, 11 TD, 56 REC).
The Bulldogs finished the regular season with a highly successful 11-1 record to claim the East division of the SEC. Unfortunately, their winning prize is a championship game against what many consider to be the best program in the nation. Facing an undefeated team who are better than you on paper is disheartening and Georgia will have to rise to the challenge this weekend. Both sides have strong defenses but it will be up to the Bulldogs to topple the better unit. Judging by the odds, there’s no question that Georgia is at a severe disadvantage here.
Players to Watch: Jake Fromm (2,236 passing yards, 24 TD, 5 INT), D’Andre Swift (139 rushing yards, 9 TD, 6.9 AVG), and Mecole Hardman (519 receiving yards, 6 TD, 32 REC).
