The University of Georgia has won two consecutive national titles and are the frontrunner for a potential third College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy. A historically easy regular season schedule has the Bulldogs poised for their sixth SEC East division win in seven years thanks to a likely 12-0 record heading into the SEC Championship game.
Head coach Kirby Smart looks to win his first Associated Press College Football Coach of the Year Award, which would also be a first for the University of Georgia.
The offense will be led by quarterback Carson Beck, along with pass-catching tight end phenom Brock Bowers. A pair of senior running backs, Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards, anchor what will be an experienced and productive backfield.
Expect the Bulldogs to have the top defense in college football, and that was also the case in their last two title-winning seasons. Their 3-4 defensive front will be a handful with linebackers Jamon Dumas-Johnson and Smael Mondon Jr. flying all over the field.

Georgia: Win National Championship (+215)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.25 Units
After winning two straight titles, the Bulldogs aren’t reloading; they’re overloaded.
This offense is led by Brock Bowers, who is sure to be a potential top-10 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft despite playing at tight end. He collected 63 receptions for 942 yards and seven touchdowns last year (13 TDs in 2021).
Georgia’s elite defense allowed offenses to convert just 53 first downs on third down (26.6%, second-best in FBS). The Bulldogs’ defense allowed 23 touchdowns, the fifth-fewest in FBS.
Georgia: Win SEC Title (-115)

Georgia has stolen away from Alabama’s mantle the crown for the nation’s best defense. And with it, it has become the new dynasty program in the SEC.
Without major strides on offense, Alabama is a close second in the SEC. LSU appears to be back on the rise after HC Brian Kelly led it to a win over Alabama and took its spot in the SEC Championship game last year.

TE Brock Bowers OVER 8.5 Receiving Touchdowns (-106)
FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.75 Units
Although he scored seven touchdowns last year, Bowers is the best player in this offense and will be a nightmare matchup in the red zone.
At 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, the nation’s best tight end should get a lot of opportunities to produce. He was honored in 2022 with the John Mackey Award, given to college football’s most outstanding tight end.
By the end of the upcoming college football season, Bowers will be locked-in as a top-10 pick in the NFL Draft. Georgia fans should look forward to a huge season statistically.
Georgia Best Prop Bets
Georgia OVER 11.5 wins (+116)
FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit
The Bulldogs only have one game, a road game at Tennessee, against a team ranked in the preseason top 25. While the Volunteers aren’t a pushover, the rest of the schedule most certainly is.
The plus odds are a bonus. Georgia is deep enough and well-coached across their two-deep to the point that this bet is injury-proof.
Given the team’s talent, top-notch recruiting, and domination at the transfer portal, UGA has a great shot to run the table.
Georgia Make College Football Playoff (-250)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit
Due to their favorable schedule, there’s little resistance in the path to the CFP. Given the team’s pedigree under Smart’s leadership, the Bulldogs would definitely have a great shot at making the CFP with one loss.
A two-loss Georgia still might sneak in, especially when you consider last year’s TCU narrative getting blown out by 58 points by the Bulldogs, the most lopsided title game in CFP history. The long odds are not a deterrent for what will be the best team in college football.
