Ohio State vs Georgia Predictions Picks Betting Odds

Saturday’s match will be the second meeting between the two teams. They have players who will soon make the leap to the NFL, and for this reason a vibrant final of the 2022 Peach Bowl is expected. However, only one of the two will become champion and finalist of the CFP, and the one with the best chances is the home team.

Why? Firstly, because to their strong offensive line, which received numbers just below Ohio, and secondly, due to their strong defensive line, which is insatiable on the ground. For these reasons, we at JefeBet believe that Georgia will win.

Prediction: Georgia wins and covers the spread.
