Georgia football dominated LSU 50-30 to move to 13-0 and become the 2022 SEC Championship Game. The Dawgs are No.1 in the College Football Playoff and taking on No.4 Ohio State in the Peach Bowl semifinals.

This matchup has been one college football fans have wanted for years, as the Buckeyes and the Dawgs are two of the premier programs. After Ohio State canceled the home-and-home series, this matchup means a little more.

Head coach Kirby Smart has 20-plus days to prepare his program for the Buckeyes, and the Michigan Wolverines provided a guide on how to beat Ohio State. The Dawgs and Buckeyes’ initial odds are close, but this is a game we could see the odds change before the game.

Georgia Football vs. Ohio State Buckeyes odds for the semifinal Peach Bowl

The Dawgs come into the Peach Bowl as 6.5-point favorites over the Buckeyes on FanDuel. The spread line has Georgia at -115 and Ohio State at -105. So if you bet $100 on Georgia to cover the spread, you’ll win around $86.96, or if you pick LSU to cover, you will win $95.24.

Fan Duel currently has the money line odds for this game at +220 for Ohio State and -275 for the Dawgs. A $100 bet for the Buckeyes will be a $220 winning ticket, and for Georgia, it would be $36.36.

The over/under is 59.5 points, with the under at -105 for the Dawgs and the over at -115 for Ohio State. So if betting on the over/under is more your speed, throwing down $100 on the under would result in a $95.24 winning ticket, or if you want the over, it will result in you winning around $86.96.

Georgia Football vs. Ohio State early prediction for the semifinal Peach Bowl

Georgia covered the spread against LSU in the SEC Championship Game, and now the Dawgs have over 20 days until this game, so there is plenty of time to prepare. The Dawgs have a defense that Ohio State hasn’t seen all season, so that it could be a long night for the Buckeyes.

After going 2-0 in Atlanta this season, Georgia will look to go 3-0 in Mercedes Benz Stadium and head to another national championship game. However, Ohio State will be ready to play and try to prove itself worthy. While that sounds like a great game plan for the Buckeyes, Georgia will have a bigger chip on its shoulder because it wants another championship.

The Dawgs will not overlook Ohio State because this is a playoff game and one that will really put Georgia’s legacy in place. There is no way Georgia will let Ohio State ruin its perfect season and possibility of going back-to-back. The Buckeyes will try, but it will not work.
