Betting on the Ohio State Buckeyes (+7.0)
Record: 11-1 Overall/8-1 Conference
Ohio State can say it’s a little bit lucky for still making it to the College Football Playoff despite not even playing in the Big Ten Championship Game. But craziness in the last weeks of the regular season resulted in the Buckeyes earning a spot in the Peach Bowl. Of course, most of the attention over the side of Ohio State will be on quarterback CJ Stroud. He has the highest rating in the FBS among quarterbacks (176.25), which makes it no surprise that Ohio State finished the regular season second in the nation with 44.5 points per game. But the Buckeyes are no pushovers on the other end of the field as well, as they were 11th overall with just 19.3 points allowed per outing. Jaxon Smith-Njigba will not play in the Peach Bowl, but the Buckeyes will still have the pair of Marvin Harrison Jr. and Emeka Egbuka, who had over 1,000 receiving yards each in the regular season.
The Over is 9-1 in Ohio State’s last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (-7.0)
Record: 13-0 Overall/8-0 Conference
Georgia is the reigning and defending national champions, so the Bulldogs know what it takes to go all the way and win it all in the College Football Playoff. The Bulldogs have spent their entire time in the regular season showing everyone why they are the team to beat, and it’s not even close. Georgia blew out its opponents one after another and along the way managed to rank inside the top 10 in the nation in both scoring offense (39.7) and scoring defense (13,8). Experience is also on the side of the Bulldogs, with quarterback Stetson Bennett still under center. Jalen Carter is also quite the dominant force on defense who can singlehandedly change the complexion of a game with his power alone.
The Under is 5-0 in Georgia’s last five bowl games.
Georgia wins, 33-20.
