The Texas-Georgia matchup in the upcoming Sugar Bowl maintains the most one-sided spreads of any non-College Football Playoff game.

The line in the Texas-Georgia game still heavily favors the Bulldogs, but there seems to be a growing sense that Georgia is going to run the Longhorns out of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

According to updated odds from OddsShark, Georgia has been given even better odds and is now a -13 favorite in the Sugar Bowl. That number is up several points from just three weeks ago, per OddsShark's line history metric.

The current predicted score is now 40.8-26.6 in favor of Georgia, which is also an increase in the predicted points the Bulldogs will score.

Texas has not lost a game by 13 points or more since November 4, 2017 in a 24-7 loss to TCU. The Longhorns' biggest loss of the 2018 season came in the Big 12 Championship Game against Oklahoma, a 39-27 loss.

But Georgia consistently managed to blow out their opponents. The Bulldogs beat both Florida and Kentucky by 19 and 17 points respectively, and scored at least 40 points in more than half of their games.

The Longhorns, by contrast, scored 40 points or more only three times.

Texas and Georgia are set to kick off at 8:45 p.m. E.T. on Jan. 1. The game will be on ESPN.
