TCU vs. Georgia Bet Preview at BetMGM
BetMGM has the Bulldogs listed as favorites by 13.5 points. The dynamic Georgia offense mounted a thrilling 42-41 comeback against Ohio State to get to the final stage Monday. TCU — a bit more one-dimensional, but not to be under-estimated — is riding the ferocious 51-45 upset of No. 2 Michigan. There’s lots of ways you can cut the cake.
Let’s check in with Action’s experts to explore the various ways we’re betting Monday night’s National Title:
Patrick Strollo on Georgia -12.5:
The TCU story has been really fun, and I personally am a fan of the program. But I fully expect the National Championship to be a repeat of the Sugar Bowl with Georgia’s superior talent — especially on defense — putting an end to the Cinderella story for TCU.
I love laying the chalk at 12.5 for two reasons. First, this is a really great football number, just inside the two key numbers of 13 and 14. Secondly, I have a model advantage here and am projecting as 16.5-point favorites.
In the end, it will be the Bulldog defense that gets the job done once again as Georgia becomes the first back-to-back champions on the CFP era, but look for 25-year-old quarterback Stetson Bennett to have a huge game and solidify himself as the best Georgia quarterback ever.
Cody Goggin on Over 62.5 Points:
Georgia will likely have its way with this TCU defense that ranked 80th in Rushing Success Rate Allowed this season. Max Duggan and the offense is what got TCU this far. While it probably will not be enough to win the game, I do believe it will score points, especially if trailing.
I also don’t have any doubts about Stetson Bennett and this Georgia offense’s ability to put up points. While I think the Bulldogs walk away victorious, I think we see plenty of scoring. The Horned Frogs won’t go down without a fight.
Doug Ziefel on Georgia 1Q -3:
The Bulldogs finished fourth in yards per rush and first in rushing yards allowed per game. However, they also have a stellar defensive line that can create pressure and an excellent secondary to make windows tight for Max Duggan.
On the other side of the ball, we should expect Georgia to come out and establish the run game. The Dawgs ranked third in yards per rush and will face a TCU defense that ranked 64th in yards per rush allowed.
While it’s clear the Bulldogs have edges on both sides of the football, the most significant factor in this play is experience. This Georgia team has been here; the Bulldogs are the defending national champions, after all. Expect them to be well-prepared and exhibit no early-game jitters as they methodically dominate the opening quarter.
What Will Happen?
Let’s bet a two-leg parlay that combines the notion of Georgia’s offensive juggernaut flushing out TCU, but the TCU not losing in shame. We’ll say Georgia -13.5 + over 62.5 total points for +272.
If we pull out $100 onto the BetMGM app and use it all on our first bet, we would see $272 back in profits and keep the original $100 for $372 total. But here’s where the promotion really helps: If we should lose this bet, we’ll get the $100 right back in the form of bet credits at BetMGM.
Understanding BetMGM Bet Credits
Bet credits are like if the sportsbook spots you for the bet, and if it wins, you give back the bet, but keep the profits. BetMGM splits up its credits into any increment, so you can put $1 on one bet, $25 on another, or use all $100 at once. Keep in mind, your bet credits must be used within seven days of being credited to your account. So you’ll want to use them when you can.
Let’s say we use $10 of the $100 on the Bulls to upset the Celtics at +295. We would see $29.50 back in winnings if it wins, but BetMGM takes the $10 in bet credits back. If it loses, we lose the $10 and make nothing. We still have $90 bet credits remaining.
We always recommend you make plus-money wagers with your bet credits, so taking spreads actually isn’t the best idea. You’re getting much more expected value, since you don’t keep the initial stake. While you may not hit your bet credits as often at +500 since those outcomes are less likely, it’s mathematically optimal and you’ll make money in the long run.
