|Georgia Bulldogs -20.0
This is typically one of the biggest games on the NCAAF schedule, but the Orange Bowl odds do not reflect that this time around. Florida State is just coming into this game with too many injuries, and they are going to struggle to be competitive.
Georgia was at the top of the NCAAF standings, and they are going to want to make a statement to end the season. This game looks like a complete mismatch heading into the weekend, and it’s going to turn into a blowout.
Taking the over 44.5 total points is one of the best bets to make in this game, and it will be Georgia scoring most of the points. Bet on the Bulldogs to not only win the Orange Bowl, but to also cover the 20.0 point spread.
Orange Bowl Odds
If you are going to want to bet on the Orange Bowl: Georgia Bulldogs vs Florida State Seminoles matchup then you first need to check out the Orange Bowl odds. Georgia is coming into this game as a big 20-point betting favorite, and that line has really gotten spread out over the last few days.
You can also look at the NCAAF odds to bet on the over/under line, and that number is currently at 44.5 total points. That is another number that shifted with the spread as new information released.
Georgia Great on Both Sides of Football
It has been a good decision to make a Georgia prediction for them to win over the last few seasons, as they have just one loss in a span of three years. Georgia was battling some tough injuries in the SEC Championship Game and they couldn’t find a way to score on Alabama.
This Bulldogs team can be absolutely dominant on the defensive side of the ball, especially as they are facing a third-string quarterback. Georgia will try to set the tone on defense, but this team also has a ton of weapons on the offensive side of the ball.
Quarterback Carson Beck, a possible NFL Draft pick for next year, has thrown for 3,738 yards and 22 touchdowns, and he has announced that he is staying at Georgia. Beck will be looking to prove something in this game, and he has a ton of weapons to get the football to.
Seminoles Will Struggle to Score
The FSU schedule set up the Seminoles for a huge season, and this team was able to get through the year without a loss. While NCAAF injuries tend to impact most teams throughout the country, and injury to quarterback Jordan Travis has really derailed the season for Florida State.
Not only will Travis be out for this game, but Florida State will also be without their backup quarterback. Florida State averaged 36.5 points per game this season, but that number got worse over the last few weeks.
This defense was one of the best in the country this season, but that unit is going to be tested in a major way in this game. Florida State will need to keep this game close on defense, but that’s going to be a major challenge.
