Handicapper Danny Sheridan picks Georgia to win 2019 national championship, also high on Auburn, Texas A&M
The 2019 college football season is close to kicking off and prominent handicapper Danny Sheridan is sharing some of his predictions for the season. In an appearance on “The Opening Kickoff” on WNSP-FM 105.5, Sheridan reportedly shared that he is picking Georgia to win the 2019 national championship while also explaining why he thinks Auburn and Texas A&M will exceed expectations.
Mark Heim of AL.com shared Sheridan’s big predictions:
On Georgia, his national championship pick for 2019:
- “I like Georgia to win the national championship. I think they are better than Alabama, on paper, and probably better than Clemson.”
- “(Kirby Smart) inherited a good team. (Alabama coach Nick) Saban inherited absolute crap. It took him three years to win a national championship.”
- “Keeping Georgia out last year was the biggest (college football) travesty in my life next to Peyton Manning not winning the Heisman after coming back for his fourth year in 1998.”
- “Every year, I say they are going to lose three or four games. Malzahn has had five horrible years. He’s an 8-5 coach. But, he will win every six years. This is his sixth year.”
- “I think Auburn will have a great year. I don’t care they are an underdog five times. I believe they are loaded at every position. What they need is a (former Alabama quarterback) AJ McCarron, a game manager. Nothing more.”
- “I’d be surprised if Auburn doesn’t beat Oregon, if they don’t upset LSU and if they don’t beat Florida. They are capable of upsetting Alabama or Georgia.”
On Texas A&M:
- “I’m in the minority. I think they are going to win 9, 10 or 11 games.”
In his article, Heim points out that Sheridan made a bet, for charity, on Clemson winning the national championship ahead of the 2018 season. Dawgs fans are certainly hoping his pick proves right again this fall.
