After months of drama, upsets, and amazing football, the race for the National Championship will finally be decided on Monday night. It is definitely not a matchup that anyone probably picked at the start of the season, as the TCU Horned Frogs are certainly a surprise package. It may be a surprise to see this team in the big game, but make no mistake about it, they deserve to be there. On the other side of the field, you have a Georgia Bulldogs team looking to win their second straight championship, a feat that is ridiculously tough to accomplish, which we will get into a little deeper when we take a closer look at the Bulldogs. It’s very much a David versus Goliath type of matchup, and the odds prove that, with Georgia in as a 13 ½ point favorite. The point total for this one is set at 64. With all that in mind, it’s time to look at our final betting analysis for TCU vs Georgia so you don’t miss your chance to bet on the NCAA Football National Championship Odds.

Why bet on the TCU Horned Frogs
It was a strange kind of season for the Horned Frogs, as there was some serious doubt that they would land in the final 4. When the Playoff Committee put out their first rankings, they had a 1-loss Alabama sitting ahead of the unbeaten Horned Frogs. TCU continued to win and finally forced their way into the top 4 heading into their Big 12 Conference Championship Game, which they lost by a matter of inches to Kansas State. There was again some sense that the Committee might leave them out after that loss, but they got in and delivered a stunning showing in a 51-45 win over Michigan in the semi-final. This is a tougher game, but the Horned Frogs have been a great bet, covering the spread in 6 of their last 8 games overall. When playing as the underdog, as they are here, they have seen the OVER hit in 5 of the last 7.
Why bet on the Georgia Bulldogs
Since the college football playoff came into being in 2014, no team has won it all in back-to-back seasons. The last team to win consecutive championships was Alabama, who did it back in 2012. Georgia is on the brink of making history and they certainly look like a team of destiny. We tend to talk about the defense when discussing Georgia, and they have certainly been great again this season, surrendering less than 12 PPG. We should not be sleeping on this offense, though, as they ended the season in the top 10 with close to 39 PPG. To say that the defending champions are balanced on both sides of the football is perhaps putting things a rather mildly. Their win over Ohio State in the other semi-final was one for the ages and they will be coming into this game with some serious swagger. The Dawgs have won 16 in a row as a favorite and have seen the UNDER hit in 7 of their last 10 versus the Big Ten.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The Georgia Bulldogs have become a bit of a machine and just always seem to find a way to win. TCU don’t seem to know when they are beat, but this seems like a bridge too far. I am on the Dawgs to win and cover, and I also like the UNDER.
