Georgia Bulldogs vs. Alabama Crimson Tide College Football odds and picks

Since taking over Georgia in 2016 Kirby Smart has methodically used the Alabama blueprint.  Smart coached under Alabama coach Nick Saban from 2007 through 2015.  At Alabama, he learned from the GOAT of college football.  Especially important was the lesson that recruiting is the lifeblood of College football betting success.  Smart recruits as well as any coach in the country.  He takes full advantage of the fertile state of Georgia and the surrounding areas.  Also helping are Smart’s numerous SEC connections.  Smart has never beaten Saban but had two close calls.  Eventually, the “Tide” must turn.
