Will Georgia make the playoffs?

Georgia Bulldogs college football betting odds playoffs

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Will the Georgia Bulldogs make the 4-team college football playoff field in 2014? Let's take a look at their odds.

View FBS Championship Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bulldogs have 5/2 odds to qualify for the four-team college football playoff field in 2014-15, while they're 1/4 to miss the postseason altogether. Georgia is also 16/1 to win the 2014-15 College Football FBS Championship.

The Bulldogs have most of their skill position players returning on offense, outside of quarterback Aaron Murray who was drafted to the NFL back in May. Running back Todd Gurley returns, as do receivers Michael Bennett, Chris Conley and Justin Scott-Wesley. Filling in for Murray will be Huston Mason, who was once the Gatorade High School Player of the Year.

The problem on offense is the fact that Georgia will return just two starters to their offensive line. Senior David Andrews returns at center and junior John Theus will return at offensive tackle, but the rest of the unit will have new faces. That's a lot of turnover on an O-line that will have to protect a quarterback with limited starting experience.

That said, while the offense could take a while to gel, the defense should hit the ground running in Week 1. All 11 starters return to Mark Richt's defense, including stud linebacker Ramik Wilson, who was 2013 All-Conference player a year ago. The starting defensive line of Sterling Bailey, Ray Drew and Chris Mayes also returns, as well as linebackers Leonard Floyd, Amarlo Herrera and Jordan Jenkins.

The secondary is all back too, as cornerbacks Shaq wiggins and Damian Swann return, as well safeties Corey Moore and Tray Matthews. Some of the quality depth that Georgia had a year ago also returns on defense.

The key for the Bulldogs this season will be whether or not the O-line comes together quickly and if Mason can be consistent. Otherwise, Gurley and the defense should keep UGA in most games.
