Georgia football podcast: ESPN experts, Las Vegas ‘wise guys’ apparently at odds over UGA

Beginning of the show: ESPN recently polled a number of its college football experts about their Playoff picks. 13 analysts said Georgia would make the Playoff, but only three had UGA as the SEC’s lone representative. In other words, a lot of folks around ESPN seemingly think the Bulldogs are still going to play “second fiddle” to Alabama in the SEC. That’s a different opinion than one Las Vegas insider — who recently suggested that some of the so-called “wise guys” in the betting community are high on UGA. I’ll talk more about that subject on today’s show.
