Georgia flexed at South Carolina on Saturday and the No. 1 Bulldogs are viewed as the national title favorites at DraftKings and FanDuel.

The Bulldogs offered their latest exhibit in domination by going ahead 48-0 in Columbia, S.C., before the Gamecocks found the endzone late in the fourth quarter.

At BetMGM, nearly 11 percent of national championship futures tickets list Georgia as the favorite. Most books then tend to be aligned on one thing: through Week 3 of the college football season, it's a three-horse race.

Georgia pulled well ahead at 175 at DraftKings, which lists Alabama at 210 and Ohio State at 275 before anyone else enters the equation (USC is 1200 and fourth on the national title board).

FanDuel has Georgia at 180, Alabama 200 and Ohio State at 300.

As of Monday morning, the Crimson Tide were favored at Caesars Sportsbook at 200 and Georgia 210.

It's difficult to see Georgia being an underdog the rest of the season, and even finding an opponent that will challenge the Bulldogs might be relatively challenging by SEC standards.

The line for Week 4 against Kent State on Saturday? Georgia is a 44-point favorite with the total set at 59.5.

The Bulldogs have now allowed 10 points in three games. In addition to the annual showdown with Florida (Oct. 29), Georgia visits No. 8 Kentucky on Nov. 19 and doesn't face Alabama in the regular season.
