All eyes are on the Georgia Bulldogs as the 2022 NCAA college football season nears. Kirby Smart's squad looks to recapture last season's magic that resulted in a CFP National Championship win over Alabama. The first step to that will be defeating the Oregon Ducks in a Week 1 matchup.

Georgia vs Oregon Week 1 College Football Odds

The Georgia-Oregon matchup is already shaping up to be a lopsided affair judging by FanDuel Sportsbook's opening week betting odds.

The spread is sitting at 17.5 points in favor of Georgia, with both teams getting -110 odds to cover. The over/under point total line is set at 50.5 points.

Georgia vs Oregon History

Despite both schools boasting their fair share of history, the Bulldogs and Ducks have only met once when it comes to football.

The lone Georgia-Oregon matchup took place way back in September 1977, resulting in a 27-16 victory for the Bulldogs. A lot has changed in nearly 45 years, so it'll be interesting to see if history repeats itself after all this time.

CFB National Championship Odds

Looking at this year's National Championship odds, this lopsided point spread has more to do with the fact that Georgia is the defending National Champion. The Bulldogs rank third in the United States with +350 odds, trailing only Alabama (+180) and Ohio State (+300), while the Ducks are tied for 18th place with Florida at +12000.
