Las Vegas Sports Betting Board

The TCU Horned Frogs are heading to the College Football National Championship Game after beating Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl on Saturday night. TCU will meet Georgia, who beat Ohio State, in the Peach Bowl.

And as expected, Georgia has opened up as a favorite, however the margin may even surprise some of the biggest Bulldogs fans.

 

Georgia is a 13-point favorite against TCU in the National Championship Game, while the over/under on total points for the game has been set at 61.

Georgia is undefeated after winning the SEC and taking care of the Buckeyes on Saturday, while the Horned Frogs’ only loss came in the Big 12 Championship Game, where they lost to K-State.

TCU became the first Big 12 team to make the National Championship Game in the College Football Playoff era. Oklahoma had been to the Playoff four times, but lost in the semifinals in each game.

Georgia is 4-0 against TCU all-time, with two of those games coming in bowl games. The last meeting was in 2016 when the two teams met in the Liberty Bowl, with Georgia winning, 31-23.
