When y’all get done crapping on CFF for underrating Georgia’s roster, you might want to take a gander here.
With the season fast approaching, we wanted to look closely at our preseason numbers to find favorable odds on some college football futures before the season gets underway. Below are our five favorite bets to target before kickoff on August 24th.
Georgia to win the SEC (+275)
With all of the hype surrounding the returning talent at Clemson and Alabama, Georgia feels like a distant third in most preseason power rankings and an afterthought to win the SEC title. Similarly, Jake Fromm has flown a bit under the radar when discussions on the top echelon of quarterbacks occur. This may be an oversight, as his 2018 production ranks well among returning quarterbacks in the Power 5 conferences. Among this group, he had a top-five passing grade and threw an accurate throw on 67.1% of attempts which ranked second. Defensively, the Bulldogs lost DeAndre Baker but Eric Stokes appears ready to step in and be the dominant shutdown corner this team needs. Their schedule sets up as well as can be expected, and after tough road matchups against Florida and Auburn, a clear path to the SEC title game emerges — a game in which they’ll very likely face an opponent against whom they’ve had success the last two years.

Notice he said 2 road test with Florida and Auburn, thus reinforcing the point that Florida is a ROAD game.
Or it could be, ya’ know, simply referencing that UGA is the designated road team this year.
I’ve tried. Good luck.
We’ve shown success against Alabama in the past two years? Or did I miss he’s predicting Auburn to win the SECW? Neither makes sense.
I think he’s suggesting they won’t be intimidated by Alabama given that they should have won the last two meetings.
“Tough” game against UF….my ass!
I’d lay a $100 for a shot at $275.

Nov. 2: vs. Florida
Breakdown: Georgia has beat Florida the past two years by a combined of 78-24, but the rivalry game should be closer in Dan Mullen’s second year as head coach of the Gators. The offense which averaged 35 points per game in 2018 is returning almost all of its important pieces, but the defense will be the deciding factor when the two teams meet in Jacksonville, Florida, for the “World’s Largest Cocktail Party.”
Player to Watch: redshirt senior defensive lineman Jabari Zuniga
Prediction: 24-20, Florida
Florida wins the SEC East..
I think this proves that no one really knows, but also proves some people
are dumb as shit..
It wasn’t my intent to come across as crapping on CFF or our chances for glory. It simply put a visual perspective for me on the task ahead. Even if we beat Bama to win the SEC, we’ll likely have to face them again and Clemson also. That’s what I meant by a tough mountain to summit. To win those 3 games in a row is going to take a HELL of a lot of luck.
Well, for Bama to win it they will have to beat Georgia in the SECCG and likely Georgia again and Clemson in the playoff. The team that has it easy is Clemson, which plays nobody in the regular season, a half-assed opponent in the conference championship game and only has to play the top team likely Bama in the playoff.
