Bettors favor TCU over Georgia, but money on the spread hints at a Bulldogs blowout

Either Georgia is going to blow out TCU in Monday’s national championship game, or TCU is going to win. That’s according to the money being wagered on the game, which doesn’t leave open the likelihood of a close Georgia win.

The Bulldogs are double-digit favors, and though just 32% of total bets against the spread at BetMGM picked them to cover, 64% of the money is on a Georgia cover. That contradicts moneyline bets, where 87% of wagers and 68% of money is on a Horned Frogs win.

The one thing bettors agree on is the total, with 68% of bets and 73% of money on the over.

BetMGM received a wager of $550,000 on Georgia -12.5. The bettor would win $500,000.

Public betting is similar at DraftKings, where TCU has received 66% of bets against the spread but just 44% of the handle wagered on the spread, according to VSiN.
