Can Georgia do what Alabama did exactly 10 years ago and repeat as National Champions in college football?

This content was produced in partnership with Gambler Labs.

The defending champion Bulldogs are +210, the second overall favorite according to most New York sports books, to do just that. The college football season is in its straightaway and is headed down the stretch toward the playoffs.

Georgia remained undefeated through seven games of the season, but has a big game with also undefeated Tennessee on the horizon before the SEC Championship Game.

The Bulldogs lost to Alabama in the SEC title game a year ago, but still went to the playoffs and avenged that only loss in the National Championship Game.

This year Georgia has used a strong defense, despite having lost four first-round NFL draft picks from last year’s team, and the study efficient play of quarterback Stetson Bennett.

Ohio State, out of the Big 10, is the favorite to win its first national title since 2014 at odds of +175 with BetMGM NY. The Buckeyes won their first six games of the season, but still must get past also undefeated Michigan before the Big 10 Championship Game.

The Buckeyes cruised through their first six games of the season behind the play of Heisman Trophy favorite, quarterback C.J. Stroud.

Alabama, despite being upset by undefeated Tennessee, is still the third choice according to various sports books at +400. The Crimson Tide have won six national titles since 2009 and were runners-up three other times. Last year’s Heisman winner quarterback Bryce Young leads head coach Nick Saban’s team.

Clemson is the fourth choice on the board at +1200. The likely ACC Champions won its first seven games led by running back Will Shipley. Head coach Dabo Sweeney’s team is looking for its third national title since 2016.

Michigan and Tennessee are the next choices at +1600 and could be good value bets, if you think they can get to the playoffs.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines steamrolled their first seven opponents and are gearing toward that Nov. 26 showdown with Ohio State. Depending what happens elsewhere both Big 10 teams could make it to the four-team playoffs.

Tennessee is enjoying its best season in years thanks to the play of quarterback Hendon Hooker and wide receiver Jalin Hyatt. The Volunteers won their first six games, including the upset of Alabama in mid October. They still need to get by Georgia and then perhaps a re-match with Alabama in the SEC title game.

The Pick: Ohio State is really good and probably deserves to be the favorite. But the SEC is just a superior conference and it's not a fluke that 12 of the past 16 champions have come from that conference. Georgia is the safe bet, but if you want to take a chance, put a little bit on Tennessee.
