COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take Georgia. According to latest college football trends, the Bulldogs are 6-1 against the spread, 4-1 ATS in their last five games on grass, and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games versus the ACC. On the other side, the Tigers are 2-5 against the number in their last seven non-conference games. The Bulldogs lost a lot of defensive talent to the NFL in April but with Aaron Murray, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall returning on offense, this program is going to score plenty of points. Tajh Boyd is going to create headaches for Georgia’s defense but in the end, the Dawgs have the better and deeper team and should come away with at least a narrow victory.
