You will find plenty of betting options to choose from when Georgia and Oregon square off, but there are five bets that will stand out.
When it comes to college football, betting against the spread is always a great option to choose. Spread betting isn’t popular in every sport, but you can bet against the spread in Georgia vs. Oregon.
When the odds for this game were first posted, the Georgia Bulldogs opened up as 17.5-point favorites. This means that Georgia would have to win the game by at least 18 points to cover the spread, and Oregon would simply need to lose by 17 points or less.
Moneyline betting is common when it comes to college football also, but it might not be a great play in the 2022 Georgia vs. Oregon matchup. Because the spread is so large, Georgia is going to be a big moneyline favorite.
Let’s assume that Georgia is a favorite at -500, which means that you would have to bet $500 just to win $100. If Oregon is the underdog at +320, then a $100 bet would actually come with a payout of $320.
If trying to predict the winner of this game is something that you are not willing to do, then you could look at making an over/under or totals bet. The winning team does not matter as you are looking at the total number of points scored in this game.
The over/under odds opened up at 51.5 points, and the odds were at -110 for both sides of this bet. This gives you a pretty good betting option, and you can then decide if you want to take the over or under.
If Georgia and Oregon combine for 52 points, then the over would hit, but 51 points or less would make the under the winner.
Live betting is a great way to bet on this football game also, and you can make a spread, moneyline, or totals bet as the game is going on. The only difference with live betting is that the odds are updated in real-time, and you have to be ready to act on them quickly.
Since both Georgia and Oregon are expected to have good seasons in 2022, you can make a futures bet on each team as well. A futures bet won’t be impacted by what transpires in the first game of the season, but these odds will stay open throughout the year.
You can bet on either team to win the College Football Playoff or simply focus on the odds for each team in their respective conference.
