  • The 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship has arrived, as TCU takes on Georgia.
  • If you're looking to bet TCU vs. Georgia, we have you covered with expert picks, best bets from our staff, player props, anytime touchdown picks, a five-leg same game parlay and more.
  • Check out all of our 2023 National Championship betting coverage below.

On Aug. 27, 131 teams entered the college football season with wide eyes and hopes of a national title. Four short months later, only two teams hold those same dreams.

Fresh off a national title last season, the Georgia Bulldogs didn’t slow down this year despite getting ravaged by the NFL Draft in April. Instead, Kirby Smart retooled, and the offense took a step forward to make a dangerous team even scarier.

The TCU Horned Frogs, meanwhile, were picked to finish seventh in the Big 12 in their inaugural season under new head coach Sonny Dykes. But when Max Duggan was inserted into the starting lineup of Dykes’ Air Raid offense, a dream season began. Now, Duggan has been a Heisman finalist, and his team is playing for the most coveted trophy in college athletics.

Last season’s national title game featured two blue bloods from the SEC. This season, TCU’s Cinderella story is trying to change the national narrative in college football.

While the storyline is certainly intriguing, there’s more to be done — more football to watch, more bets to win and more exhilaration to come.

Whether you’re looking for best bets, player props, anytime touchdown bets or the expertise of Collin Wilson and Stuckey, we have you covered.

So, let’s enjoy the final matchup of what has been an incredible college football season. It’s time to make one last trip to Green Dot City.
