Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (7-1 Overall / 5-1 Conference)
The last two weeks had been challenging for Georgia, who had to marinate itself in the aftermath of its 36-16 loss to the LSU Tigers on Oct. 14. But coming off a bye, the Bulldogs roared back and picked up a moral-boosting 36-17 victory over the No. 9 Florida Gators at home. Both the offense and the defense clicked for the Bulldogs, who outgained the Gators, 429-275. Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm returned to form and went 17-of-24 for 240 passing yards and three touchdown. Running back D’Andre Swift burned rubber for 104 rushing yards and a touchdown. Kentucky is the best defensive team in the nation on paper, but if Swift could find some success early to open up some more room for Fromm’s arm to operate, the Bulldogs should be able to inflict damage on the Wildcats’ stop unit.
Georgia, which is second in the SEC with 221.23 rushing yards per game, is 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in its last 10 road games.
Betting on the Kentucky Wildcats (7-1 Overall / 5-1 Conference)
The college basketball season has yet to start, but Kentucky has a lot to brag about since its football program is doing very well. The Wildcats, thanks to their stingy defense, overcame a nine-point deficit last Sunday to come away with a 15-14 road win against the Missouri Tigers. The Wildcats allowed all of Mizzou’s points in the third quarter, so if there were any major concerns for Kentucky from that contest, it’s merely their consistency. That’s not a big issue for the Wildcats for most of the season, so they could be expected to improve on that this weekend. The Wildcats have the nation’s best scoring defense, allowing only 13.4 points per game. They are also seventh in total defense with just 295 total yards surrendered per contest.
Bettors have been profiting this season off Kentucky home games, as the Wildcats are 3-1 SU and 3-1 ATS in four games this year as the home team.
Georgia wins, 27-23.
