This Saturday the Oregon Ducks and the Georgia Bulldogs will kick off their respective college football seasons in Atlanta Georgia at the Chic-Fil-A Kickoff game.
Georgia is coming off a National Championship last season, and while it lost a ton of talent to the NFL, the Bulldogs still come into the season as the No. 3 team in the nation. Oregon is no slouch either, registering at No. 11 in the rankings.

Oregon vs Georgia Prediction & Pick
While Oregon still comes in as one of the nation's top teams, going up against the defending champs in what basically amounts to a home game is no easy task. Georgia dismantled a very talented Clemson team in this same spot last season.
Georgia's defense may have lost a ton of talent to the NFL, but Kirby Smart has guys waiting to step up and fill their spots, and national champion quarterback Stetson Bennett is also returning, which should give the offense the ability to pick up where it left off.
Final Score Prediction: Oregon: 21 | Georgia: 42

Oregon vs Georgia Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
This big spread might be daunting, but as mentioned above, Oregon is 1-4 ATS in its last five non-conference games, the Bulldogs on the other hand are 4-1 in theirs. Georgia will be playing in front of a very favorable crowd and should be poised to make a statement in Week1 on national television coming off a National Championship. With Stetson Bennett returning under center and still one of the most talented defenses in the country, take Georgia to cover.
Bet: Georgia -16.5 (-115)
