The Georgia-Texas matchup in the Sugar Bowl is increasingly looking like it will be a one-sided affair in favor of the Bulldogs.

Only a few days ago, the Longhorns were an 11- to 12-point underdog, but those odds have since increased.

According to oddsmaker OddsShark, the Longhorns are now a 13-point underdog based on spread evaluations from other betting websites.

OddsShark's predicted score has also moved to 40.8-26.6 in favor of Georgia, indicating that the Bulldogs will cover the already-impressive spread.

Even though the two teams have not played in several weeks, the increasing favoritism towards Georgia should come as little surprise.

Georgia boasted one of college football's best offenses and defenses - scoring under 27 points only once and allowing more than 30 points only twice - while the Texas defense was noticeably less stout.

The two teams have not played each other since the Cotton Bowl in 1984. The Bulldogs won that game by a score of 10-9.

But it seems unlikely that this game between two high-octane offenses will be nearly as low-scoring as the last time they met.
