Breath of Fresh Air for Florida State Seminoles…

In the Orange Bowl on December 30, the No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs (12-1, 8-0 SEC) will play the No. 5 Florida State Seminoles (13-0, 8-0 ACC). The College Football Playoff Committee’s historic rejection of Florida State has sparked a wave of controversy.

The Vegas betting lines fluctuate as more wagers are placed and kickoff gets closer. The line for FSU vs. UGA is an astounding 19 points, which is the biggest predicted point disadvantage remaining in bowl season. The next-highest margin, according to DraftKings, is 16 points in favor of Oregon versus Liberty.

With players like running back Rodney Hill, quarterback Tate Rodemaker, and linebacker DJ Lundy going through the transfer portal, there’s a good chance the Bulldogs will win because of roster attrition. Prodigious talent, including running back Trey Benson, defensive end Jared Verse, wide receiver Johnny Wilson, and wide receiver Keon Coleman, are slated to enter the 2024 NFL Draft and won’t be available for this game.

The squad has also been beset by injuries, which is why the oddsmakers have given the game such a large margin. Running back Lawrance Toafili and Heisman Trophy Finalist Jordan Travis both sustained season-ending injuries and will not play. On the three-deep rotation, the number of injuries, player opt-outs, and departures is well into the double digits.
