Georgia vs Florida State Preview & Picks

Florida State are tipped to cover as a double digit underdog.

The Seminoles played hard after losing Jordan Travis and will have a chip on their shoulder after being snubbed by the playoffs committee.

Georgia, meanwhile, could have a bunch of opt-outs after their disappointing SEC Championship defeat.

  • Florida State are 5-2-0 ATS in their 7 road/neutral venue games
  • Georgia are 4-9-0 ATS this season
  • The Under has cashed in 4 of Florida State’s last 5 games
  • The Under has hit in 4 of Georgia’s last 5 games

Head To Head

Georgia lead the all-time series 6-4-1
Georgia won 26-13 when the two teams last met in January 2003

Georgia Form

Georgia were forced to settle for an Orange Bowl berth after losing the SEC Championship Game to Alabama.

The Bulldogs, seeking a third consecutive national championship, won all 12 of their regular season games to march into the conference championship.

They met four ranked teams along the way, and three of those meetings ended in blowout wins for the back-to-back defending champions.

Georgia crushed #20 Kentucky and #10 Ole Miss at home, 51-13 and 52-7 respectively, and recorded their most impressive road win at #21 Tennessee, winning 38-10.

The Bulldogs then completed the regular season campaign with a 31-23 win at Georgia Tech on rivalry weekend, sending them into the conference championship game with a 100% record.

However, their dreams of another national championship went up in smoke as they suffered a surprise 27-24 defeat to #8 Alabama.

Florida State Form

Florida State are playing in the Orange Bowl after the College Football Playoffs committee controversially snubbed them.

The Seminoles made an immediate statement as they took down #5 LSU, 45-24, in their season opener, catapulting themselves into the top four in the rankings.

They then went on to compile a perfect regular season record and win the ACC Championship as they dominated the competition in their conference.

Florida State’s only meeting with a ranked team in the regular season saw them beat #16 Duke, 38-20, back on October 21.

It was not a completely smooth ride for the Seminoles though, as they lost start quarterback Jordan Travis to a season-ending injury against North Alabama.

However, a strong defensive effort led them to a 24-15 win at Florida in their regular season finale, and another guided them to a 16-6 victory over #15 Louisville in the ACC Championship.

Verdict

It is tough to back a Georgia team who could lack motivation and be without several key players.

Florida State, on the other hand, will want to send a message of defiance to the committee after their playoff snub, so give us the Seminoles and a couple of touchdowns here.
