Oregon Ducks vs Georgia Bulldogs Betting Info

Why bet on Oregon versus Georgia?

Georgia is known for fantastic, awesome, lockdown defense. Well, the man who developed the Dawgs D is now the head coach at Oregon. Dan Lanning doesn’t start his stint in Autzen with a bad hand. Oregon’s linebackers should form one of the top units in college football. The defensive line is a strength for sure. The offense shouldn’t be bad either because the Ducks return four starters.

Why bet on Georgia versus Oregon?

Georgia won the National Championship by beating top SEC rival Alabama. Now that Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs have ascended to the top of the mountain, they want to stay there. Even though UGA lost 8 starters from last season’s title team, Georgia always has talent waiting in the wings. Not only that, but Stetson Bennet returns for his seventh, yes, seventh college football season.

11-Oregon Ducks vs 3-Georgia Bulldogs Final Betting Prediction

Georgia should win, but what’s up with the crazy 17-point spread? What every college football handicapper must understand is that no team, it doesn’t matter if it’s Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State, whichever team comes to mind, can lose 8 starters on their defense and maintain the same excellence they had the season before.

That doesn’t mean Georgia’s defense doesn’t grow into the best unit in college football. But it’s not there right now. Almost as important is the fact Oregon might have the better defense in this game.

Dan Lanning will know how to contain Kirby Smart’s offense. If the Ducks defense roughs up Bennett, who essentially had a couple of good starts last season but only a couple, Oregon can win this straight up. Taking the points is a no-brainer.
