The No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs remain undefeated after surviving the No. 7 Notre Dame Fighting Irish back in Week 4, and now, they are preparing for a matchup against the careening Tennessee Volunteers, who are a huge source of disappointment down in Knoxville. Will the Bulldogs continue their dominance? Or will the Volunteers score an upset?
Betting Preview for the Georgia Bulldogs vs Tennessee Volunteers Week 6 College Football Game on October 5 2019

Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (4-0 Overall / 1-0 Conference)
Georgia passed its first true test of the season. Bulldogs quarterback Jake Fromm passed for 187 yards and a touchdown on 20-of-26 completions last Sep. 21 on their way to a 23-17 home win over the No. 7 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. But it was running back D’Andre Swift who arguably had the best night for the Bulldogs, as he ran for 98 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. Expect the Bulldogs to run the ball down the throat of Tennessee this coming weekend. Georgia is second in the SEC with an average of 253.00 rushing yards per game. That being said, Fromm is a solid playmaker from the pocket, and he can pick Tennessee’s pass defense that can’t just solely box him up due to Swift’s presence. Last year, Fromm had 185 passing yards on 16-of-22 completions in a 38-12 home win over the Volunteers. Swift had two rushing touchdowns in that game as well.
The Bulldogs are 4-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games on the road.
Betting on the Tennessee Volunteers (1-3 Overall / 0-1 Conference)
It just keeps on getting worse for Tennessee this season. After breaking a two-game snap to start the season with a very predictable 45-0 home win over the Chattanooga Mocs on Sep. 21, the Vols reverted to their losing ways and suffered a 34-3 loss on the road at the hands of the No. 9 Florida Gators. Vols quarterbacks Jarrett Guarantano and Brian Mauerer combined for just 151 passing yards with zero touchdowns and three interceptions against the Gators. Volunteers also got just 88 rushing yards from their backfield. Tennessee allowed four sacks, which partly explains the mediocre performances of their gunslingers, though, Florida is truly among the best when it comes to pass rushing, as it leads the SEC with 24.0 sacks on the season. Georgia has 12, so Guarantano and/or Maurer can have more space to find their receiver. If anything, the Vols are coming off a bye week, so they will be well-rested heading into their showdown with the Bulldogs.
The over is 3-1 in the Vols’ last four home games. They are also 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings with the Bulldogs.
Georgia wins, 41-21.
