Orange Bowl betting preview

Georgia’s quest for a third straight national title came to an end with a 27-24 defeat to Alabama in the SEC championship game. The 12-1 squad was ranked sixth in the final CFP poll. Prior to the loss, the Bulldogs had won nine of their 12 games by 10 or more points. Georgia has a record of 4-8-1 against the spread and 6-7 on the over/under. 

Florida State closed out the campaign at a perfect 13-0, defeating Louisville in the ACC title game. The feat was made even more impressive by the fact that the club was down to its third-string QB. The Seminoles just missed out on a CFP berth, ranking fifth in the final poll. The club is 8-5 ATS and 7-6 on totals. 

This will be the first meeting of the two programs since 2003, a 26-13 win at the Sugar Bowl for Georgia, which holds a 6-4-1 advantage in the all-time series. The Bulldogs are 37-21-3 in bowl games, defeating TCU 65-7 last season to win the national title. The Seminoles are 29-17-3 in bowls, most recently defeating Oklahoma 35-32 at the 2022 Cheez-It Bowl.
