Top Week 1 college football expert predictions

One of Sallee’s top college football picks for Week 1: Sallee is going Under 52.5 in the matchup between No. 3 Georgia and No. 11 Oregon at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday.

The Bulldogs had the most dominant defense in the nation in 2021, giving up just 153 points all season long. They took heavy losses to the NFL Draft on that side of the ball, however. 

Sallee believes they’ll pick up right where they left off, making this look like a low-scoring matchup. 

“This one boils down to two things — Georgia’s defense won’t take a big step back and Oregon quarterback Bo Nix is a liability,” Sallee told SportsLine. “The mass exodus in Athens was a big story during the NFL Draft, but coach Kirby Smart is just fine with Jalen Carter up front, Nolan Smith at linebacker and an ultra-talented secondary. Nix completed 56.4% of his passes, only threw one touchdown and was picked twice in three games vs. Georgia when he was at Auburn. Is that going to change? Nope. Georgia will jump out to a lead and then deflate the football for an easy Under.” See who else Sallee likes at SportsLine.
