Georgia Bulldogs Season Prediction, What Will Happen

Even with all the superstar losses on defense, and even with a few key parts gone on offense, Georgia should be favored in all 12 regular season games.

No, the Clemson team the 2021 Dawgs faced in the opener wasn’t the normal killer offensively, and no, that was nowhere near the normal Florida team, and rolling over Kentucky and Tennessee – as good as they were – might not have been anything too special. However, it was still a decent schedule that might turn out to be far tougher than what this year’s team has to deal with.

Talent-wise, who can hang with this team? Oregon, yeah, and Florida should do okay, and Tennessee is even stronger, but it’s going to take something funky for this team to lose twice – at least if everything goes according to plan.

Set The Georgia Bulldogs Regular Season Win Total At … 10.5

Here’s the thing to remember – when did Georgia lose twice in the regular season under Kirby Smart?

2020, but one of the two losses was to a national championship Alabama team. There’s no Bama on the 2022 slate.

2019? No. 2018? No. 2017? No.

Smart’s 2016 team lost more than two games in a regular season, and that was a true building year – not like this one – right after he took over. Replace Alabama with – say – Ole Miss in 2020, and Georgia almost certainly would right now be on a run five straight years of no more than one regular season loss.

In other words, if you’re an investing type, going over on the 10.5 win total is more likely than hitting the under.

Along with missing Alabama, there’s no Texas A&M, and no Ole Miss, and no Arkansas or LSU. The road games at South Carolina, Missouri, Mississippi State, and Kentucky are all manageable.

The neutral site dates with Florida and Oregon are tough – 50/50 at worst, but both are lean win – and home dates with Samford, Kent State, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech, and – in a tougher battle – Tennessee, should all be wins.

There will be a loss along the way, but again … two?

Demand nothing less than 11-1, an SEC East title, and another trip to the SEC Championship with the College Football Playoff on the line.
