College football odds: CFP title game early lines for Georgia-TCU

Can the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs (14-0) become the first repeat college football national champions in a decade? 

Or will the No. 3 TCU Horned Frogs (13-1) complete their Cinderella season by winning it all?

The Bulldogs and Horned Frogs will play for the national championship on Jan. 9 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

As for the odds, Georgia opened as a 13.5-point favorite at FOX Bet, with the Over/ Under (total) opening at 61.5. 

Per FOX Sports Research, this is the largest point spread for any College Football Playoff or BCS Championship Game. The previous high came when Miami was a 12-point favorite over Ohio State in the 2002 BCS Championship Game.

The defending champions advanced to the CFP title game by edging the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes 42-41 in a thriller on Saturday night (or Sunday morning Eastern time) at the Peach Bowl in Atlanta. 

The Bulldogs held on to win when the Buckeyes missed a potential game-winning 50-yard field goal with three seconds to go.
