Georgia is 4-0 overall, 3-0 at home and 2-0 in SEC play while Tennessee is 3-1 overall, 0-1 in the SEC and playing in its first road game. The Bulldogs are 2-2 against the spread while the Volunteers are 1-3 ATS. Georgia has won and covered in the last two meetings, but the Volunteers have covered the spread in 4 of their last 6 against the Bulldogs.

Trends show that Tennessee is just 1-7-1 against the spread in its last 9 conference games and 0-6-1 ATS in its last 7 games against teams with a winning record. Georgia is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 home games but 7-3 ATS in its last 10 SEC games. These two have combined to hit the under in 6 of their last 8 meetings at Georgia.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv Georgia is the favorite at home in this one, as the Bulldogs are getting odds of -13 points against Tennessee. The over/under total for the game has been set at 61.5 points. (View Matchup) The opening odds had Georgia as a 15.5-point favorite. The spread never got higher, dropping to 13 points over the last few days.

Georgia is coming off a dominant 48-3 win at home over Vanderbilt last week. The Bulldogs have now won all four games this year by at least 21 points. The Georgia defense is holding opponents to just 16.5 points per game while the offense is scoring 47.5 points per contest. Georgia has a nice balance on offense, averaging 287.5 passing yards and 242.5 rushing yards per game thus far. Running back Todd Gurley has rushed for 406 yards and 6 TDs while quarterback Aaron Murray has 1,092 passing yards with 10 scores.

Tennessee bounced back from its Week 3 loss to Florida with a 47-26 win over Akron last week. The Vols are now scoring 38.3 points per game while giving up only 24.3 points per contest. Still, the Vols have yet to hit the road, which could be a real concern in this game. Tennessee was 0-4 against the spread in true road games last year. This season, Tennessee has been led by junior quarterback Tyler Bray, who has thrown for 1,301 yards and 12 TDs.
