In the preview of the 2022 Peach Bowl final, we had already told you that Georgia is on the right track and that it will win. The Georgia Bulldogs have remained undefeated this season, and they got to be champions last week. Now, they will seek the CFP championship twice under the guidance of their coach, Kirby Smart.
The final against the Ohio State Buckeyes was really electrifying, and although they won, it was not easy for them, since they have just managed to make the difference in the last quarter (7-7; 21-7; 10-0 and 3-18). Undoubtedly, that game was a show of character from the Bulldogs, who average 39.4 points scored per game and 12.8 points against.
Regarding total yards, they average 494.9 (293 through the air and 201.9 on the ground), while the totaled average of yards allowed is 292.1 (215.1 were by pass and 77 per carry).
In numbers, Georgia’s defense is nearly impenetrable, while on offense it is barely inferior to TCU.
If we take into account what cannot be measured, for example the temperament, what Georgia showed last week was huge, and that speaks of an united group that knows how to stand up in the face of hardships. For all these reasons, at JefeBet we believe they will win the game.
Prediction: Georgia wins but does not cover the spread.
