The Georgia Bulldogs have always been a team hanging around the top-10 of college football in recent years, but they've had trouble getting over the hump. The ultimate disappointment came a few years ago when they lost on a walk-off touchdown in the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship game, which introduced the world to Tua Tagovailoa.

However, regardless of how they do in a season, the game against their biggest SEC rival, the Florida Gators, is always near the top of the list on priorities for the season.

That being said, it should put a smile on Georgia fans' faces knowing that they head into 2020 as a 3.5-point favorite over the Florida Gators in the Week 9 matchup in Jacksonville, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

While Florida has seen improvement the last couple of years, Georgia still comes into the 2020 iteration of this series on a three-year winning streak. Things also so don't seem to be getting any easier for Florida either. Georgia is bringing in the second-best class of high school players in 2020, while Florida's class ranks at No. 8, according to ESPN.

Things surely could change as the season approaches and progresses, but right now, Bulldogs' fans have to be pretty happy about where the odds stand.
