College Football Betting: Georgia Bulldogs vs. MSU Spartans

College football betting January 1 includes a matchup of teams that finished badly against the college football odds in Georgia and Michigan State.

College football betting offers an excellent handicapping challenge here in determining the motivational intangibles and talent of these two teams against the college football odds.  On balance the Michigan State Spartans surprised the college football betting community with a good season in which they were in the Big Ten title hunt until their final game.

Sparty had an overall college football betting record of 9-3 straight up and 6-6 against the college football odds.  Michigan State ranked in the middle of the pack nationally on both offense and defense.

Their biggest strength against the college football odds would be head coach Mark Dantonio, who has raised the level of play, expectations, and the Spartans businesslike approach and solid effort in all games.  Dantonio has been the biggest reason that MSU has found respect on the college football betting board.

Running back Javon Ringer brings State an asset against Capital One Bowl odds as he rushed for 1590 yards and a whopping 21 TD’s.  The Spartans are something of a college football betting throwback team that likes to play a physical smash-mouth style of football.

It is not an understatement to say that Georgia is underwhelmed to be listed on the Capital One Bowl odds.  The Bulldogs were the favorite of the college football betting world to make the BCS title game.  College football betting fans quickly discovered, however, that UGA was a pretender rather than a contender.

Coach Mark Richt’s team was bombed out in their college football betting matchups against the best two teams of the SEC, Alabama and Florida.  They also “limp in” to Capital One betting action after having lost to their intra-state rivals Georgia Tech 42-45 as 7.5 point home chalks.

Georgia covered the college football betting line in just 1 of their last 8 games.  Georgia would be a balanced Capital One betting team as they run and pass in near equal amounts.  Knowshon Moreno had a strong season with 1338 yards rushing, a 5.9 YPC average, and 16 TD’s.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford had a solid college football betting season with a 153 rating and a 22/9 TD/INT ratio.
