Georgia and TCU are set to kick off for the College Football Playoff national championship from Inglewood, California, on Monday night. Georgia is the clear favorite as the defending national champion. Caesars Sportsbooks has the Bulldogs picked to repeat as champions by a 12.5-point margin.

TCU is a true Cinderella, vying to become the first team ever to be unranked in the preseason and win a championship. It would be the first national title for the Horned Frogs since 1938.
