Before you make any Alabama vs. Georgia picks and SEC Championship Game predictions, see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $3,700 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It also enters Championship Week 2021 on a 42-28 run on all top-rated college football side picks. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows that Georgia has a national championship-caliber defense. Led by lineman Jordan Davis, the Bulldogs lead the country in both total defense (230.8 yards allowed per game) and scoring defense (6.9 points allowed per game). The unit has given up just seven touchdowns this season, the fewest in the country.
The model also knows that Bryce Young is having a Heisman Trophy-caliber season. The -200 favorite to win the award at Caesars Sportsbook, Young ranks in the top 10 in the nation in several categories, including passing touchdowns (second at 40), points responsible for (fourth at 260) and passing efficiency (fifth at 177.0). He also ranks seventh in passing yards per game (325.1) and 10th in total offense (324.3 yards per game).
Now the model has simulated Georgia vs. Alabama 10,000 times, and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning Under the total, and it says one side of the spread covers over 50 percent of the time. You absolutely need to see it before locking in your own picks.
