ESPN’s Matchup Predictor predicts that the Bulldogs will beat TCU. It is not the most shocking of picks. After all, Georgia is undefeated and is the defending champion.

The experts over at The Athletic are a little split, with five picking the Bulldogs to repeat and two predicting an upset victory by the Horned Frogs. Georgia is definitely the favorite to win, thanks to its balanced offense and defense that finished inside the top 10 in the nation during the regular season. Plus, the Bulldogs have the experience at this stage and have been viewed as a legitimate national title contender from way back the preseason. Still, not everyone is sleeping on TCU, which only has one loss this season, so far.

Here’s what Pete Fiutak of College Football News thinks the Georgia-TCU game will turn out to be:
TCU will move the ball on the suddenly shaky Georgia defense, but there will be a lot of bending but not breaking. It won’t be enough as Stetson Bennett and the offense go on a flurry early on so the D could take over.
I’m seeing the Oregon game for Georgia. It comes out perfectly polished, scores easily on the first two drives and coasts from there.
Team Rankings projects that the Bulldogs will win by an “estimated score of 37.5 to 23.8,” (h/t James Parks of Sports Illustrated).

Here is what Ryan Simpson of TopBet says of the Georgia:
Georgia had a close call in the Peach Bowl, but the Bulldogs ultimately battled back after falling behind a huge lead to capture a thrilling 42-41 victory over the Ohio State Buckeyes. Stetson Bennett showed impressive calmness and finished with 398 passing yards and three touchdowns against an interception on 23/34 completions. It was the toughest outing the Bulldogs have had so far in the season, as they haven’t given up more than 30 points in a game before meeting Ohio State. But while the Bulldogs showed cracks against Ohio State, it could turn out to be a great wakeup call for Georgia, particularly to its defense. Back in the regular season, Georgia allowed just 15.9 points and 318.2 total yards per game – fifth and 10th overall in the nation. At the same time, Georgia still winning against a team like the Buckeyes despite a wonky defense highlighted the reliability of the Bulldogs’ offense. Bennett and company look poised to pounce on TCU which has given up 76 points in the last two Horned Frogs games.
Georgia is 8-3 against the spread in its last 11 bowl games.
