Head-To-Head: Georgia vs Alabama
The Bulldogs are currently riding an SEC-record 29-game winning streak after last week’s 31-23 win over Georgia Tech and are 6.5-point favorites against the Crimson Tide, who have won ten games in a row since their 34-24 Week 2 loss to the Texas Longhorns.
Alabama played through its early-season inconsistencies to return to the College Football Playoff conversation and earn the right to play Georgia in the SEC Championship. They were the last team to beat the Bulldogs in the 2021 edition. However, Georgia would take the national title from the Tide a few weeks later in the final.

Georgia vs Alabama Predictions
Just like the last two times these two teams faced each other in the SEC Championship, this matchup will have postseason implications. While the Tide has scratched its way back from an early-season defeat against Texas, the Bulldogs haven’t slowed down since winning their second straight national championship and have been undefeated in the regular season since 2020.
Alabama has won two SEC titles against Georgia over the past five seasons. However, the Bulldogs’ dominance will be apparent in this matchup, and they should get a convincing win and cover the spread against an Alabama defense that has allowed 23 points per game vs. lower-ranked top-25 opponents this season.
Prediction: Georgia -5.5
