LSU Tigers vs. Georgia Bulldogs Pick – SEC Championship December 3, 2022

The Louisiana State Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs meet in an SEC Championship Game that does not feature the Alabama Crimson Tide. This is only the third time in the last 11 SEC Championships that Alabama has not been in the conference championship. We have our LSU vs. Georgia predictions and best bets in Atlanta.

LSU is looking for the biggest upset of the conference championship games on Saturday. They are a 17.5-point underdog in the SEC Championship Game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Tigers are coming off a disappointing performance against the Texas A&M Aggies.


The Tigers did not look right in a 38-23 loss to the Aggies. Jayden Daniels didn’t look like the same guy that beat the Alabama Crimson Tide in early November. Could this have been a look-ahead spot for LSU?

Note that the Tigers already clinched a spot in the SEC Championship Game. There was little for them to play for last week, but LSU fans wanted to see some more against an unranked Texas A&M team.

The Bulldogs are going into the SEC Championship unbeaten at 12-0 on the season. They’re perfect following a 37-14 win over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Georgia took that game off as well, but still managed to win by more than three touchdowns.

Georgia is the No. 1 team in the College Football Playoff going into the conference championship games. They need a win to stay at No. 1, but are going to the CFP regardless of what happens on Saturday.

Head below for our LSU vs Georgia best bets and betting pick in the SEC Championship on December 3, 2022.

LSU vs. Georgia Predictions

LSU needs a lot to go their way if they’re going to the College Football Playoff. It seems rather improbable at this point. Even if LSU wins the SEC Championship, the CFP committee is highly unlikely to allow a three-loss team into the playoffs.

Alabama and Ohio State are going to be more attractive options. Not that I am advocating for the Crimson Tide getting after the mediocre season they’ve had, which includes a loss to LSU. Fortunately, the College Football Playoff will be a 12-team tournament soon.

LSU Needs To Crack The Georgia Defense

This sounds like a nearly impossible task for LSU. However, they do have some confidence going into the SEC Championship Game. The Tigers beat Alabama straight up in overtime, 32-31.

Bringing that win up has to be a good pregame speech for head coach Brian Kelly. This is a different defense, though. Georgia has multiple players that could be on an NFL defense today.

The Bulldogs lead college football with an average of 11.3 points allowed per game. LSU likes to establish the run, but that is not going to be easy against this Georgia front. They’ve conceded 79.5 yards rushing per game entering Saturday.

Jayden Daniels In A Walking Boot

If the Tigers are going to have success, it is going to happen on the arm of the former Sun Devil. Daniels was spotted in a walking boot earlier in the week and is confirmed to be dealing with an ankle injury.


That is terrible news for an LSU team that can’t afford an injury to their best player. Daniels is at his best when he can run the ball. He has passed for 15 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 68.6% completions.

Those are solid numbers, but even better is his 824 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. On a bad ankle, this is not happening against the Bulldogs. Just moving around in the pocket should prove to be difficult.

LSU vs. Georgia Betting Pick:

For LSU to pull off the upset, they need Daniels to have a big game through the air. The Tigers are not going to run the ball consistently on Georgia. Daniels is not going to chew up Georgia without a run game.


Conversely, expect Stetson Bennett to use his NFL tight ends to his advantage. Look for Danell Washington and Brock Bowers to put together more solid game film for NFL scouts in the SEC Championship Game.

Bennett does not get enough credit. He has held in there well this season. The veteran has passed for 16 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 67.2% completions.

Look for Georgia to get out to the lead and then grind away with their run game in the second half. The Tigers need a healthy Daniels, but that isn’t what they are going to have in Atlanta.

Our LSU vs. Georgia prediction is a 38-17 win and cover for the Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game.
