2021 SEC Championship Game odds, spread, line: Alabama vs. Georgia picks, predictions, bets from proven model
The No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs can move one step closer to the program’s first national title in more than 40 years when they take on the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2021 SEC Championship Game on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Georgia (12-0) has been the unanimous No. 1 in the country for a school-record eight straight weeks. With a win on Saturday the Bulldogs would earn a berth in the College Football Playoff and remain alive to win the program’s first national championship since 1980. Meanwhile the Crimson Tide (11-1) might need a win on Saturday to have a chance at repeating as CFP national champions.
Kickoff is 4 p.m. ET on CBS. The Bulldogs are 6.5-point favorites in the latest Georgia vs. Alabama odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points scored is 49.

Georgia’s defensive line looks to have a huge edge going against the Alabama offensive line. The Bulldogs defense averages 3.42 sacks per game, which ranks second in the SEC and fifth in the country. Georgia will go up against an uncharacteristically porous Crimson Tide offensive line that gives up 3.00 sacks per game, which ranks 12th in the SEC and 112th in the nation. Last week Alabama allowed seven sacks against Auburn.
In addition, freshman Brock Bowers has quickly established himself as a playmaker in the passing game. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound tight end from Napa, Calif., has a team-best 37 catches for 652 yards and 10 touchdowns. His TD catches are one shy of the school record held by Terrence Edwards in 2002.
Alabama has an explosive receiving threat in Jameson Williams. The transfer from Ohio State ranks second in the country in receiving touchdowns (13), seventh in yards per catch (20.67) and ninth in receiving yards (1,261). He also ranks second in the nation in kickoff return touchdowns (two). In the four games leading up to the Iron Bowl, when he was ejected for targeting, he averaged 157.8 receiving yards per game and 21.0 yards per catch and had seven touchdown receptions.
In addition, the Crimson Tide offense has done an excellent job on third downs this season. Alabama is converting on 53.9 percent of its third downs. That leads the conference and ranks second in the country.
