ATHENS — The odds are against Georgia football returning to the College Football Playoff — albeit, slightly — according to BetOnline.com futures and props odds.

The Bulldogs, who played for the national championship after the 2017 season and missed the 2018 CFP amid controversy, have a 44.9-percent chance based on the odds provided.

Coach Kirby Smart had to replace both his offensive coordinator (Jim Chaney, Tennessee OC) and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker (Colorado head coach) after last season.

Georgia, however, returns what many believe is the best offensive line in college football along with third-year starting quarterback Jake Fromm and 1,000-yard rusher D’Andre Swift

Senior safety J.R. Reed anchors what could be the best secondary in the SEC, and the front seven is expected to take a step up after performing at less than a championship level most of last season.

These could be the best CFP odds UGA has for a couple seasons; many of the Bulldogs’ underclassmen, including Fromm, are projected to turn pro after this season.
