Georgia football podcast: Gambling expert takes deep dive on why UGA’s favored vs. Alabama

Beginning of the show: Georgia remains a point spread favorite vs. Alabama in the upcoming national championship game despite the persistent questions from some who wonder how that could be true given Alabama’s win in the SEC championship game over the Bulldogs.

I brought on a gambling insider from BetUS onto SEC Country Live Wednesday and asked him that question, and in the midst of providing an answer, he also shared some inside information that makes the line even more surprising. I’ll share what was said on today’s show.

15-minute mark: I discuss some strong comments from UGA linebacker Nolan Smith on what a national championship would mean for the Bulldogs.

20-minute mark: Former UGA wide receiver Terrence Edwards joins the show to preview the game vs. the Crimson Tide.

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including one SEC team poaching a coordinator away from one of its division rivals.

End of show: I award a Golden Shoe winner and update the Gator Hater Countdown.

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
