UGA coaches say a frontrunner has yet to emerge at the quarterback position, but oddsmakers are calling the race all but decided.
According to online betting site BookMaker.eu, freshman Jacob Eason is a solid favorite over senior Greyson Lamnbert to win the starting job at -155 to Lambert’s +140. When fall camp opened last week, Lambert was slightly ahead at -105. All that surely won’t mean a lick to head coach Kirby Smart and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney, but where the money flows is often the best indicator of what’s to come.
The first week of camp saw Eason and Lambert share an equal amount of snaps with junior Brice Ramsey, and coach Smart has said that it’s far too early make predictions. But in the court of public opinion, the job is Eason’s to lose.
