It will be the Alabama Crimson Tide taking on the Georgia Bulldogs in the college football national title game. This is a rematch of the SEC Championship Game in which Alabama came away with a convincing win.
Alabama had to win the SEC Championship Game to make the CFP field, and that has given them plenty of momentum. The Crimson Tide blew out Cincinnati in the semifinals and are looking to defend their current title.
Georgia picked up an impressive win over Michigan in the semifinal round in order to set up this rematch. The Bulldogs have been dominated by Alabama over the past decade and will be trying to find a way to break through.
Georgia is actually a 2.5-point betting favorite for the national championship game on Monday night.Jump to
Georgia Has to Run
The Bulldogs are averaging nearly 200 rushing yards per game this season, and they have to run the ball well if they are going to win this game. The Bulldogs are facing a defense that has been dominant against the run, but Georgia can’t afford to abandon that strategy early.
Quarterback Stetson Bennett has continued to get better throughout the year, but he was unable to solve Alabama. Georgia will need to use the passing game as a way to soften up the defense and create rushing lanes.
The Bulldogs are giving up less than 10 points per game, but they are going to be in for a long night against the explosive Alabama offense.
Alabama Taking Some Shots
Alabama has the Heisman Trophy winner in Bryce Young, and he is going to play a key role in this game. The Crimson Tide love to take some deep shots down the field, and Young’s accuracy has made this possible.
Running back Brian Robinson Jr. had over 200 rushing yards against Cincinnati, and he will play a factor as well. If Alabama can get the rushing game going, then it will be a long night for the Georgia defense.
The Crimson Tide haven’t been as dominant on defense as Georgia, but this team has been good enough. Head coach Nick Saban always seems to have his team ready to play when it matters most.
‘Bama Can’t Be Beat
Georgia is going to keep this game much closer than the SEC Championship Game, but it’s not going to matter in the end. The Bulldogs should get a better performance from the defense, but they just don’t have the offensive weapons to keep up.
Bryce Young and the Alabama offense just have so many weapons, and they are going to hit on a number of big plays. Expect the Crimson Tide to hit on a number of big plays, and that’s going to be the difference in this game.
The Bulldogs will provide a tough challenge in this one, but Alabama is just too good. Bet the Crimson Tide moneyline over Georgia in the college football National Championship game.
