Betting on the Florida Gators (+3.5)
Record: 3-1 Overall / 3-1 Conference
Notwithstanding a pick six he threw in the second quarter, Kyle Trask had a fantastic performance in Florida’s 41-17 win over the Missouri Tigers on Saturday. Trask finished the game with 345 passing yards and four touchdowns on 21-of-36 completions. For those keeping count, that’s Trask’s 12th game in a row in which he passed at least 200 yards. He’s also now made 18 passing touchdowns in four games, thus far this season, thus setting a new record in the SEC. Can Trask keep it up? The Gators will next face Georgia’s stout defense, but it’s also banged up. The Bulldogs saw a number of key defensive players leave the game due to injuries against the Kentucky Wildcats last Saturday last Saturday, including safety Lewis Cine. Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart admitted after the game that the win over Kentucky was a costly one because of the injuries that hit his boys and said that he’s got not idea how long those players will be sidelined. If Georgia misses any of those players, then it’s going to be a much easier job for Trask to dissect Georgia’s stop unit.
Florida entered the game against Missouri ranked sixth in the nation in scoring offense with 42.0 points per game and fourth in the SEC with 342.0 passing yards per game.
Florida is 7-2-1 against the spread in its last 10 games away from home.
Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (-3.5)
Record: 4-1 Overall / 4-1 Conference
Georgia rebounded from a gut-punch loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide last week by defeating Kentucky in Lexington on Saturday to the tune of a 14-3 score. The low-scoring affair was not just because Georgia’s defense clicked despite the aforementioned hurt bodies, but due to quarterback Stetson Bennett, who went just 9-of-13 for 131 yards and zero touchdowns and two interceptions. Bennett would later commend his team for playing well but admitted what was obvious — that he did not. He will have to make better decisions with his throws against Florida, which can quickly turn extra possessions into points. But Bennett and the Bulldogs can also just let their ground game carry the offense. Georgia had 215 rushing yards and two touchdowns against Kentucky, with running back Zamir White accounting for 136 of those yards and a touchdown. Florida’s defense allowed just 40 rushing yards to Missouri last Saturday, but it had been run over on the ground in the previous two games by the Ole Miss Rebels and the South Carolina Gamecocks. Plus, the Gators might miss the service of a few starters on their secondary against Georgia. Three Gators secondary starters missed the Kentucky game for unspecified reasons, so that could be the case again for them when they face Smith and the Bulldogs.
The under is 6-1 in Georgia’s last seven games as the home team.
The Bulldogs win, 38-33.
