ATHENS - Kirby Smart’s No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs have been installed as a touchdown favorite to beat Jim Harbaugh Michigan Wolverines in the 2021 Orange Bowl in Miami. 

FanDuel lists Georgia as a 7-point favorite over the Michigan. That gives the Dawgs a roughly 68% chance to win the game. If the line holds it will be the second game in a row where Georgia is a touchdown favorite to win. 

The winner of the Orange Bowl will face the winner of the Alabama-Cincinnati game in the Cotton Bowl to determine the national champion. Georgia has been a big favorite in almost every game this season, and this is the 13th-straight game that they are projected as likely winners.

Alabama is listed as a slight favorite (+115) over Georgia (+135) to win the national title by oddsmakers. Michigan (+700) and the Bearcats (+1200) are considered less likely to win it all. Both games will take place on New Year’s Eve and be broadcast by ESPN. 

On Sunday, Georgia coach Kirby Smart said his team was excited to take on Michigan in the Orange Bowl. 

“On behalf of our team and especially our seniors we are excited to be selected for the College Football Playoff and the opportunity to play in the Capital One Orange Bowl,” Smart said in a statement.  “The goal of every college football team, coach, player, and fan is to be one of the four teams in the Playoff and we are extremely honored. It presents a great opportunity for our fans who have been so supportive of our team throughout the season at home and on the road.  Playing in a city and game with such rich tradition will be a rewarding experience and it represents another step for our program at Georgia. It also represents a great challenge playing a team like Michigan which has proven to be one of college football’s most accomplished programs.”
