The Alabama Crimson Tide have gotten the best of their border rival Georgia Bulldogs in five straight meetings, and it certainly looks like the oddsmakers believe that pattern of dominance is going to end this year either.

Even with the 2020 college football offseason experiencing some unprecedented spring delays and cancellations, the odds and spreads around more than 100 of this fall's biggest matchups are now available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Georgia vs Alabama Spread 2020

Sitting months away from the 70th all-time meeting between these two football programs, Alabama has already opened as a 7.5-point favorite to beat Georgia in Week 3 at home in Tuscaloosa, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

This may come as a surprise due to Alabama's current 5-game winning streak over the Bulldogs and Nick Saban's level of dominance over the past decade, but Georgia has actually won both of the last two series matchups in Tuscaloosa.

Granted, Georgia's 2007 road win over the Tide came in Saban's first season as Bama's head coach, and it's safe to say both of these two programs have been elevated to different places in recent years since.

There's still plenty of time for things to change between now and the 2020 clash between these two SEC titans, but the Crimson Tide remain significant early home favorites for the time being. Barring any scheduling changes we may see, Alabama is currently set to host Georgia at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020.
