An SEC team is still favored to win the national title, but it’s not Alabama.
Oddsmakers declared the Georgia Bulldogs the team to beat in college football entering Week 7.
DraftKings lists the SEC powerhouse +125 in the latest title odds, followed by the Crimson Tide (+220), who trickled back following their first loss of the season on Saturday.

Odds via DraftKings (200-1 or shorter)
Alabama’s loss to Texas A&M as a 17-point favorite was the first in almost two years. The program hadn’t dropped a game to an unranked team since 2007.
The Crimson Tide opened the year as title favorites. They wore that outfit for six full weeks – seven if we count Week 0.
The new chalk, meanwhile, is one of just 13 remaining undefeated FBS clubs.
Kirby Smart’s Georgia squad is 5-1 against the spread and flat-out eviscerating its competition, outscoring opponents 228-30 since its upset win over Clemson in the opener. The Bulldogs also pace the country in our Power Ratings.
Smart has never nabbed a national championship, but the program has been closer than most. Georgia finished runner-up to the Tide in the 2017-18 championship tilt.
Georgia is laying 23.5 points at home in Week 7 against Kentucky, which is also 6-0 straight up and 5-1 against the number.
Alabama, on the other hand, draws Mississippi State in Starkville for its second straight road contest.
