Brian Ortega vs. Chan Sung Jung

Georgia Vs. Alabama College Football
In this two vs. three matchup, the main storyline isn’t even between the players on the field but the coach on the sideline. Initially, set for a Kirby Smart vs Nick Saban matchup, Saban tested positive for COVID earlier in the week.
After two negative tests for Saban, he is a third away from taking the field on Saturday.
Before the announcement that Saban would be leaving the facility, Bama was 6.5-point favorites, sitting at -220 on the moneyline.
During the week, the line dropped to -4.5 and -165, giving college football bettors who paid attention quite the advantage. The line has moved back to 6.5 points, as Saban is expected to coach, leaving many with the ability to middle, hedge, or simply beat the book.
When it comes to college football betting, any advantage goes a long way.
