CFP National Championship TCU vs Georgia Prediction and Odds 2022
Our CFP National Championship prediction is from The Duel's official TCU vs Georgia betting preview.
TCU enters this game as a massive underdog after being just the second Big 12 team to make the College Football Playoff. It's safe to say the Horned Frogs embrace the role, though. They have been exceeding expectations all year long, but run into the best team in the country on Monday.
Georgia and TCU ranks very similarly on the offensive side of the ball. They each check in among the top 15 teams in points per game, average scoring margin and rushing yards per game. It's on defense where the Bulldogs shine. They allow only 15.9 points (No. 5 in FBS) on 318.2 yards (No. 10) per game.
These teams last met in the 2016 Liberty Bowl, where head coach Kirby Smart led the Bulldogs to a 31-23 victory in his first year. I see a comparable contest going down on Monday. Georgia is packed with talent on both sides of the ball and should pull away in the second half.
