(TheSpread) – Georgia surprised many by nearly winning the SEC Championship in 2012. Will the Bulldogs find a way to do it this season?

View Current College Football Odds

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Georgia has been given 14/1 odds to win the 2014 BCS National Championship. The Bulldogs have also been given odds of +400 to win the SEC Championship and a money line of +160 to win the SEC East Division. The over/under for wins this year has been set at 9.5 for Georgia.

Mark Richt is in his 13th season as head coach of Georgia. After a rough three-year stretch, Georgia bounced back in a big way in 2012, going 12-2 and nearly claiming the SEC Championship in a 32-28 loss to Alabama in the title game. This year’s team brings back a total of 14 starters and should be primed to make another run.

On offense, Georgia looks to be stacked. The team has nine starters back on this side of the ball, led by quarterback Aaron Murray, who enters his senior season having thrown for 3,893 yards and 36 touchdowns a year ago. Murray has been given 12/1 odds to win this year’s Heisman Trophy, and is among the top favorites for that award. Murray has some help in the backfield in sophomore back Todd Gurley. As a freshman, Gurley rushed for 1,385 yards and 17 scores. He has 20/1 odds to claim the Heisman Trophy this season. Murray also has all five starters back on the offensive line, but does have to find some new targets at receiver, as the team loses two of its top three pass catchers from 2012.

Defensively, Georgia was solid last year, allowing just 19.6 points and 358 yards per game. This year’s group only returns three starters, which poses some challenges. The team could struggle against the run, as it has only two starters back on its front seven. One solid return for Georgia is junior cornerback Damian Swann, who had a team-high four interceptions in 2012.

Getting 10 wins is an expectation for Georgia. In fact, only 10 wins could be a disappointment in the fans’ eyes. An SEC schedule is never easy, and considering the losses on the defense, it could be an uphill climb. Georgia begins the year with a trip to Clemson and then hosts South Carolina in the first two weeks. Georgia will also have to head to Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Auburn and Georgia Tech during the year while hosting LSU, and Missouri. Include the game with Florida in Jacksonville, and you have to wonder how Georgia can survive.
