Bulldogs Look To Avoid Early Season Disappointment Against In Clemson

Posted by Dan Marcus on 8/29/2013 7:44:39 PM

The Georgia Bulldogs came very close to beating the eventual BCS champion Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2012 SEC Championship game and perhaps completely shaking up the national title picture. Ultimately, they came up just short. The Bulldogs enter the 2013 season with big expectations, but they will have to overcome a very tough test early on to avoid more disappointment. Georgia opens the online sports betting season as the fifth-ranked team in the country, but will kick off on the road against another team with high expectations in the No. 8 Clemson Tigers. It won’t take long for one of these teams to take a big hit in terms of its overall stock n the BCS picture, and the Bulldogs are the slight favorites.

Clemson will have a chance to make history in this game, as they look to become the first non-conference team to win back-to-back games against top-10 SEC teams. The Tigers beat then-No. 9 LSU in last year’s Chick-fil-A Bowl, and has set the bar even higher with a majority of key starters back this season.

College Football Betting Preview: Georgia

Georgia will hope that senior quarterback Aaron Murray can make the difference as they try and avoid becoming the next Clemson victim, and there is every reason to believe he will be up to the challenge. Murray threw for 3,893 yards and 36 touchdowns compared to just 10 interceptions a year ago, and should benefit from another year of work. The same five offensive line starters from a year ago are back to protect Murray, who also benefits from the unique balance provided by one of the top running back tandems in the country in Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. That offense will need to put up some big totals in week one, as an inexperienced defense will be very vulnerable against this Tigers’ offense.

College Football Betting Preview: Clemson

Clemson is led by record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd, who broke his single-season passing records by throwing for 3,896 yards and 36 touchdowns on the way to earning ACC Player of the Year honors last sports betting season. Boyd opted to return for his senior year, and will look to build on last year’s production with junior receiver Sammy Watkins primed to bounce back this year. The Tigers’ defense ranked 71st in yards per game a year ago and isn’t expected to be much better this season, so the offense will need to lead the way once again in 2013.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Clemson is poised to have a big year with Boyd leading the way for one of the most explosive offenses in the country, but the defense remains suspect and that will create problems against this Bulldogs’ offense. Georgia doesn’t have an elite defense, but they are balanced enough on offense that they can dictate the pace of this sports betting contest and coe out on top in what should end up being a shootout.

College Football Betting Pick: Georgia Bulldogs – 1.5
