Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (-14)
Record: 7-0 Overall / 5-0 Conference
Whether it’s Stetson Bennett or JT Daniels who will be under center in the next game for Georgia, the Bulldogs’ defense will be there to help make things manageable for the team. Bennett passed for 250 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions in Georgia’s last game, a 30-13 home win over a good Kentucky Wildcats team in Athens on Oct. 17. Georgia didn’t see action in Week 8 due to a bye, so the Bulldogs should be well-rested for the Florida game. Daniels could potentially return after weeks of absence because of injury. However, Bennett has been handling the starting duties admirably, so either way, the Bulldogs look fine against Florida’s defense that just got embarrassed by the LSU Tigers in the Gators’ last game. As for Georgia, its defense is no. 1 in the nation with only 6.6 points allowed per game. It’s also tops nationally with only 209.1 total yards surrendered per contest.
Georgia is 4-0 against the spread in its last four road games.
Betting on the Florida Gators (+14)
Record: 4-3 Overall / 2-3 Conference
Like Georgia, the Gators rested their bodies in Week 8, thanks to a bye. That break could not have come at a better time, as Florida entered the bye following a 49-42 road loss to LSU. Florida didn’t have much trouble scoring, as evidenced by the score, with Anthony Richardson and Emory Jones combining for four passing touchdowns. However, they were also picked four times. They can get away with those errors against other teams, but likely not against Georgia’s unforgiving defense, so the key for Florida against the Bulldogs is to keep itself from making the Bulldogs’ lives easier with careless decisions. That said, Georgia’s defense showed some cracks in Week 7, with Kentucky quarterback Will Levis passing for two touchdowns without an interception. The Wildcats even went 2/2 on third downs.
Florida is 3-0 against the spread in its last three games as the home team.
Georgia wins, 31-17.
