Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (-14.5)
Record: 5-0 Overall / 3-0 Conference
Georgia means business. And if that wasn’t clear enough after thrashing the Vanderbilt Commodores on Sep. 27 at home, 62-0, then that should be by now after the Bulldogs decimated the No. 8 Arkansas Razorbacks in Athens last over the weekend to the tune of a 37-0 score. That’s two games now in a row for Georgia in which it did not let its opponent put up a score. Georgia did not have JT Daniels against Arkansas, as the quarterback was not yet ready to play because of an injury, though he was in uniform. Another week of rest could get him ready for this big matchup against the Tigers. If he can’t give it a go, the starting gig will fall on the laps again of Stetson Bennett, who passed for just 72 yards on 7/11 completions against Arkansas. Georgia let its ground game cook against the Razorbacks, with Zamir White scoring two of the team’s three rushing scores. Georgia’s elite defense, meanwhile, must be the biggest threat to Auburn. The Bulldogs have allowed just 23 points in five games so far.
Georgia is 8-2 straight up and against the spread in its last 10 games against Auburn.
Betting on the Auburn Tigers (+14.5)
Record: 4-1 Overall / 1-0 Conference
After losing to the Penn State Nittany Lions on Sep. 18, Auburn rebounded with two wins in row, first defeating the Georgia State Panthers at home, 34-24, then taking down the LSU Tigers on the road over the weekend, 24-19. Auburn leaned on quarterback Bo Nix in the LSU game. Even though he completed just 23/44 passes for 255 yards, he had a passing touchdown and wasn’t intercepted. He also led the team with 74 rushing yards and a TD on 12 carries. But here’s the thing: Georgia’s defense is no joke. Nix is going to need a whole lot from the offense to find cracks on that Bulldogs’ stop unit. That said, Nix’s elusiveness could the key to breaking down Georgia’s defense. That was on full display in one insane play in the LSU game in which Nix connected scored a passing touchdown to Tyler Fromm despite getting hounded all over in the backfield by LSU defenders.
Auburn is 9-1 straight up and 7-3 against the spread in its last 10 games as the home team.
Georgia wins, 30-17.
