Interesting Stats:

  • This is a rematch of the 2018 College Football Playoff Championship game, which Alabama won 26-23 in overtime. They trailed by 13 in the second half. 
  • Nick Saban has never lost to an opponent (head) coached by one of his former assistant coaching staff members with a 15-0 perfect record. Georgia head coach Kirby Smart served as Alabama's defensive coordinator under Saban from 2008-15.
  • The SEC Champion has gone on to win seven of the last 12 National Championship games, and at least one team featured in the last 12 SEC Championship matchups has gone on to appear in 10 of the last 11 National Championship games.

Prop Bets:

  • Home Team (Alabama) Total Points: Under 38 Points (-105) – It may seem crazy betting against Alabama's offense this season, but the Crimson Tide have comparatively struggled against their toughest defensive opponents. Alabama scored just 24 points against Mississippi State (No. 1 scoring defense) and 29 against LSU (No. 24). Georgia's defense heads into Saturday as the No. 10 scoring defense, allowing just 17.2 points per game. Lastly, the Bulldogs defense hasn't allowed 30 or more in one game all season.
  • Away Team (Georgia) Total Points: Over 25 Points (-105) – If FCS opponent The Citadel and the No. 71 scoring offense of the Auburn Tigers can hang 17 and 24 points on Alabama's defense, respectively, you have to think Georgia can get at least 25. Especially a Georgia team averaging 40.1 points per game as the nation's No. 13 scoring offense.
