Georgia and Clemson haven't met since 2014, but there's a chance they could meet in the College Football Playoffs.

ATHENS — Georgia has some business to take care of before its appearance in the SEC Championship Game, but that didn’t prevent one online betting service from producing early lines on potential matchups.

The No. 4-ranked Bulldogs (10-1) play Georgia Tech (3-8) at noon on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium before returning to Atlanta to tangle with No. 2 LSU (11-0) on Dec. 7.

BetOnline.ag produced an early line favoring LSU by 3 points over the Bulldogs.

But the odds didn’t stop there, as they also released what the line would be for several other potential College Football Playoff games.

Current No. 1-ranked Ohio State would be a 7 1/2-point favorite over Georgia in what would certainly be one of the more talked about matchups.

Former Bulldogs’ back-up QB Justin Fields transferred to play for the Buckeyes after last season and is the starting quarterback for the Big Ten favorites.

Defending national champion Clemson, with Georgia High School product Trevor Lawrence at quarterback, would be an 8-point favorite over the Bulldogs.

Even Alabama, which currently sits at No. 5 in the CFP Rankings without Tua Tagovailoa, would be a 3 1/2-point favorite, per www.BetOnline.ag.
