Oddsmakers and media members recently ordered teams by their likelihood of winning a national championship. UGA football is the consensus No. 4 pick.

UGA football has been on the cusp of a national championship for the past three seasons. 2020 will be no different according to 247Sports and FoxBet. Both sites have Georgia listed as the fourth-best team in the nation behind Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State.

247Sports ranked teams into tiers with Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State as the only teams in tier one. Instead of placing Georgia in tier two, 247Sports put the Bulldogs by themselves in tier 1.5. They mentioned Georgia’s elite talent and outstanding defense as reasons why the Bulldogs are too good for tier two, but brought up changes on offense and lack of “havoc” on defense as factors keeping them out of tier one.

Meanwhile, FoxBet recently updated its betting odds for the 2020 National Championship. Clemson has the best odds at 5/2, Ohio State is close behind at 14/5 and Alabama is third at 9/2. Georgia lands at fourth again with 11/1 odds.
