Ohio State Buckeyes: Offensive Consistency Is the Main Weapon
All eyes might be set on what the Bulldogs will do tomorrow. However, that's because of the Bulldogs' recent championship title and flawless record. The Buckeyes are just one defeat away from the Bulldogs, which makes it unreasonable to think that there will be just one team fighting for this victory.
The Buckeyes finished the season as the second-best in the country with 44.5 points in favor and are 13th overall with 19.3 points given up per game. That balance clarifies why the Buckeyes are looking like one of the strongest seeds to take home the championship title.
Georgia Bulldogs: After a Second Straight Championship
The Bulldogs are close to nailing a ticket to the championship game and accomplishing what very few schools have yet to do. The Bulldogs have a chance to clinch their second straight NCAA football championship.
With an undefeated record, the Bulldogs finished second in the nation with the least number of points against at 12.8. The Bulldogs also ended the season 18th-best with 284.9 passing yards and 17th overall with 207 rushing yards per game. Still, the focus should be on Georgia's 13-0 season record.
Our pick for Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Georgia Bulldogs
It's hard to believe the Buckeyes will not bring some consistency to tomorrow's game. Ohio State has simply remained strong, and the numbers back up this vital force and momentum the team has gradually built.
C.J. Stroud will oversee leading the Buckeyes' offense with 3,340 passing yards and 37 touchdown pass connections. As for the Bulldogs, the story is similar, and the Bulldogs will rely on solid numbers delivered by their quarterback, Stetson Bennet.
Bennet has 3,425 passing yards, and 20 touchdown passes. Although consistency will go a long way, efficiency is the key. That is where the Bulldogs have been strong while keeping one of the best defenses in the country.
We favor the Georgia Bulldogs giving -6.5 points and a game total of 62.
