The Georgia Bulldogs enter the 2022 season as the defending national champions, as they claimed their third title in school history and first since 1980. Check out Georgia’s futures odds, picks, and preview for the upcoming season.
An SEC team has won the last three national championships, but history is against the Bulldogs repeating, as only one team (Alabama in 2011-12) has defended its title since 2004. Can the Bulldogs buck that trend?
Below, we preview the 2022 college football season for the Georgia Bulldogs with a look at their futures odds and make our top picks (odds via BetMGM, DraftKings Sportsbook, and FanDuel Sportsbook).
Bulldogs to win the national championship (+380)
Georgia has played in two of the last five national championship games, so head coach Kirby Smart has it working down in Athens. However, the Bulldogs’ success means they have much rebuilding to do, as Georgia set an NFL draft record (since the draft moved to a seven-round format) with 15 players selected from last year’s championship squad.
While five of its players from a historically good defense were drafted in the first round, remaining defensive tackle Jalen Carter may be better than all of them, which means running the football against a stout front will be challenging. In addition, Georgia likely has the best tight end group in the country with Brock Bowers and previous LSU transfer Arik Gilbert.
DraftKings offers the best odds of the major sportsbooks for this wager, as FanDuel and BetMGM offer slightly lower +350 odds.
