The national title race is as open as it’s been in a long time in college football, as there doesn’t appear to be one truly dominant team this season. That includes two-time defending champion 🏆 Georgia, who was the +220 favorite entering the season.
The Bulldogs haven’t covered a single spread this campaign. They went from +200 to +300 for national title odds after another close call in an SEC battle, this time to Auburn. Yet, they’re still atop the board despite appearing vulnerable and we asked trader Wyatt Satre why that’s the case.
Georgia has looked weaker in some spots, especially on the defensive side of the ball. But I don’t think the Bulldogs’ slow start 🐢 is enough to move them out of national title favorite just yet. While the market clearly overrated Georgia in terms of spreads for the first five weeks, there really hasn’t been another team that has looked impressive enough to become the new favorite. The Bulldogs have some tough games left on its schedule with four top-25 teams, so they still have plenty of chances to show why they deserve top status. But a dominant win by a top Big Ten team against another top-10 conference foe could be enough to switch things up top.
