The sports betting disrespect towards the Georgia Bulldogs continues to operate in full swing. Georgia just landed two highly-touted transfers in former LSU Tiger TE Arik Gilbert and former Clemson Tiger CB Derion Kendrick.

Despite the news of these huge transfers, in additional to all of the weapons that Georgia already possesses, their National Championship odds haven't budged on FanDuel Sportsbook. Georgia does own the third-best odds (+500) to win the 2021 National Title, however, these odds could easily be construed as disrespectful given the obvious talent on this team.

Gilbert is a former five-star tight end recruit who decided to head home after spending his freshman season at LSU. He hails from Marietta, Ga., and told media that coming home played a factor into his decision. Of course, Georgia offers a better chance at winning after LSU went just 5-5 last season.

Georgia also added a former five-star recruit to its defense with the addition of Kendrick. Kendrick spent three seasons at Clemson and was the No. 26 overall player in the Class of 2018. He earned All-ACC honors last year, but was dismissed from the program for undisclosed reasons.

One thing for Georgia fans to watch out for is the impending transfer decision the SEC still has yet to vote on. The NCAA recently changed the ruling to allow transfer players a one-time ability to avoid sitting out a year after transferring. For the SEC, the conference hasn't voted on a decision for intra-conference transfers, but is expected to pass a similar ruling.

Regardless, Georgia just added two former five-star recruits and this team is poised to make a serious run at the National Championship next season.
