Georgia Bulldogs Seek Three-Peat

It only makes sense that the two-time defending champion Georgia Bulldogs would be the favorites to capture a three-peat this season. Head Coach Kirby Smart has built an absolute powerhouse in Athens. That doesn’t appear likely to fade away any time soon.

Smart has stacked his team with strong defensive players, specifically on the D-line, and this strategy has paid off big time for his squad in recent years.

The Bulldogs, however, face a large turnover rate with this season’s roster. They will have to have several guys step up in newly found starting roles to have a shot at a three-peat. That being said, this isn’t a feat that Smart hasn’t been able to overcome in the past.

USC Great Value Pick

The USC Trojans will look to build on their success from last season. They were a Pac-12 championship game win away from making the College Football Playoff. Head Coach Lincoln Riley got off to a hot start with his USC career last season and doesn’t appear to be done yet. He made some splashes in this incoming freshman class, bringing in the top overall player in QB Malachi Nelson as well as the nation’s top two receivers in Zachariah Branch (No. 7 overall) and Makai Lemon (No. 13). Plus this year’s Heisman Trophy favorite Caleb Williams returns.

This should be a potent offense with a strong defense, which combined should give this team another strong shot at a CFP trip. A price of +1600 presents great value.

Next Manning Ready for Texas

The football world has waited several years for the next Manning QB to come along, and he’s finally here. Peyton and Eli’s nephew Arch Manning is set to begin his freshman year for the Texas Longhorns, where he will join a very strong roster and a team that has been on the rise in the past couple seasons. The Longhorns will have to compensate for the loss of superstar running back Bijan Robinson, but they’ve got a deep roster full of capable contributors and should be up for the task. Odds of +2000 is tremendous value for a team that’s looking like strong favorites in the Big 12.

Oregon State Pins Hope on QB Transfer

The big storyline here is the addition of Clemson Tigers transfer QB DJ Uiagalelei. DJ was projected to be the next big star QB at Clemson but just couldn’t quite figure it out in his first few collegiate seasons. Perhaps Oregon State’s offense is the right fit and will allow Uiagalelei to take the next step in his progression. Pair him with a very strong defense and this team has serious dark horse potential, especially within the Pac-12. The Beavers could be very well worth a flier at +7500.
