Ohio State Buckeyes vs Georgia Bulldogs 12/31/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The #4 Ohio State Buckeyes will go against the #1 Georgia Bulldogs in NCAAF action in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, GA, on Saturday, December 31, 2023, at 8:00 PM ET.


The Buckeyes lost their regular-season finale match versus Michigan for the second consecutive year. The main distinction this season was Ohio State’s ability to sneak into the playoffs, despite the scary prospect of playing Georgia.


The Buckeyes appeared to be a team headed for one of the top two playoff slots through the first 11 weeks of the season, but with their defeat to Michigan, they now have more questions than they have answers.


Both teams’ running game issues were somewhat disappointing, especially against a Georgia team that will be powerful in the trenches.


Even though the Buckeyes may still play plenty of significant football, having to deal with Jaxon Smith-opt-out Njigba won’t be helpful.


With a 3-3 overall record in the CFP, Ohio State will be aiming to win this game and maybe make the largest statement in the history of the playoffs.


There is no denying that Ohio State boasts one of the strongest and most dynamic attacks in the country, but there are still concerns about how this squad will perform defensively.


Massive flaws, particularly against the run, were revealed in the game against Michigan, and they will undoubtedly be put to the test even more in this one.


Tommy Eichenberg was outstanding in the middle (112 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 1 interception), but the Buckeyes will need a full-court press from their front 7 in this game.


CJ Stroud (37 touchdowns, 6 interceptions) is expected to play well in this game and will require the defense to give him and the rest of the offense some leeway.


  • The Ohio State Buckeyes are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 9 of Ohio State’s last 10 matches. 
  • The Ohio State Buckeyes are 12-1 SU in their last 13 matches.

Ohio State Buckeyes vs Georgia Bulldogs Predictions 12/31/2022


There’s little reason to doubt Georgia’s ability to repeat their success from last season when they proved to the nation that they were the team to beat in the College Football Playoff.


With an unbeaten record in this game, the SEC champions have all season long made it seem simple. Only one of their thirteen victories—a four-point road victory against Missouri in October—was by fewer than ten points.


After that, there were eight straight victories by double digits, four of which were away from home or at a neutral venue.


Even though this semi final will take place at a neutral location, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is surrounded by a large crowd of supporters.


Georgia was outstanding on both sides of the ball this year, which is not surprising and will undoubtedly present challenges for the Buckeyes in this game.


For this club, it all starts on defense, as they are ranked #1 nationally in run defense and second in scoring defense. However, the danger does arise versus the pass, particularly in light of Ohio State’s mostly passing offense.


Stetson Bennett, one of college football’s most seasoned quarterbacks (20 touchdowns, 6 interceptions), is in their back pocket for this one, which will help. They should stay fresh in handling this one since the backfield is a three-headed monster as well.


  • The total went UNDER in 10 of Georgia’s last 15 matches. 
  • The Georgia Bulldogs are 10-0 SU in their previous 10 matches. 
  • The Georgia Bulldogs are 8-2 SU in their last 10 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

#4 Ohio State Buckeyes vs #1 Georgia Bulldogs. The NCAAF pick for this game is the #1 Georgia Bulldogs.


Georgia is expected to easily win this game, and after watching what Michigan did to the Buckeyes in the year finale, there’s no reason to believe that Georgia won’t be able to do at least as bad, if not worse.


Two important offensive threats for Ohio State will be absent, and against Michigan, it was evident. The Bulldogs have a potent defense that may exert control of this contest and disarray Stroud.


The Bulldogs will be able to manage the clock by bringing in a three-headed monster at running back, and by winning the possession fight, they will unquestionably control this game from an early lead.


Additionally, Georgia is 8-2 ATS in their previous 10 bowl matches while Ohio State is 0-3-1 ATS in their last four matches against teams with winning records. Georgia will win to a predicted score of 34-30.
