Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (-3)
Record: 13-1 Overall / 7-1 Conference
Georgia is getting another crack at the Crimson Tide. It could be remembered that the Bulldogs suffered their only loss so far this season when they fell prey to the Crimson Tide in the SEC title game, 41-24. This time, Georgia should have a much better feel of what to expect from the Crimson Tide. One thing about Georgia is that its defense is back to its top form. After losing to Alabama, the Bulldogs took down the Michigan Wolverines in the Orange Bowl. They held Jim Harbaugh’s team to just 328 total yards and also forced the Wolverines to cough up the ball three times. It was only in the SEC Championship Game in which Georgia’s defense was truly exposed, but a few factors are already leaning towards its defenses’ favor heading into the rematch with Alabama. For one, the Bulldogs will not have to worry about talented Alabama wide receiver John Metchie III (torn ACL). Alabama’s defense also took a hit, with some injuries on its secondary, which could open opportunities for quarterback Stetson Bennett and company.
Georgia is 7-2 against the spread in its last 9 bowl games.
Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (+3)
Record: 13-1 Overall / 8-0 Conference
Alabama is back in a familiar spot. Nick Saban has steered the Crimson Tide to another national title game appearance following a dominant 27-6 victory in the Cotton Classic against the Cincinnati Bearcats. Luke Fickell’s Bearcats had been amazing in the regular season, but they quickly found out just how much different of an animal Alabama is. Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young and running back Brian Robinson Jr. had their way against Cincinnati. Young also shined in the SEC title game versus Georgia in which he passed for 421 passing yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions on 26/44 completions. As mentioned above, Metchie will not be there for Alabama in the National Championship Game, but that the Crimson Tide are still loaded downfield with guys like Jameson Williams, Slade Bolden, and Ja’Corey Brooks. Williams paced Alabama in the win against Georgia with 184 receiving yards and two touchdowns on seven receptions, while Bolden had 54 receiving yards on five catches.
Alabama is 4-0 ATS in its last 4 neutral site games.
Alabama wins, 30-20.
