The Crimson Tide have opened up as the betting favorite to win the title being that they not only have key offensive players returning, but they also have the second-highest recruiting class in the nation.
Returning for the 2022-23 season is Heisman Trophy winner, Bryce Young, veteran wide receiver, Slade Bolden, and tight end, Cameron Latu. On the recruiting side, they’ve brought in players on both sides of the ball. On offense, they have commits from four-star prospects Jamarion Miller (RB), Shazz Preston (WR), Aaron Anderson (WR), and Kobe Prentice (WR).
Also, with Nick Saban consistently developing new talent on his teams, their National Championship odds can almost never be counted out.
How The Bulldogs And Buckeyes Matchup
Looking at the defending champions, Georgia has most of its star power returning for the 2022-23 campaign. While Stetson Bennett is off to the NFL, they still have their starter from the start of the 2022 season, JT Daniels. Also, their entire receiving core will remain intact as none of them are draft eligible. Most notably, Brock Bowers, who led the team in receiving yards (882) and touchdowns (13) is returning. With tons of veteran players backing them up, their odds could offer some of the best value.
As for the Buckeyes, they also have key offensive players returning in Heisman runner-up, C.J. Stroud, lead running back, TreVeyon Henderson, and their star wideout in Jaxon Smtih-Njigba. Their secondary is also one of the best in the country as they are returning Ryan Watts and Ronnie Hickman.
Overall, a bet on either of these three teams are smart and could end up profitable.
