Bet LSU at Georgia

LSU has not had an easy time of things this season on its way to a 4-0 start. Aside from a 31-3 win over Louisiana-Lafayette two weeks ago, all of the Tigers games have been decided by 14 points or less, including last week’s 30-26 win at Mississippi State where LSU had a fourth-quarter defensive goal line stand to hold on to win over the Bulldogs. The Tigers rank second to last in the SEC in passing yards allowed, but are second in the SEC in interceptions. Offensively, the Tigers rank among the bottom half in the conference in passing and rushing, as LSU hasn’t found its flow with the ball yet. Quarterback Jordan Jefferson has thrown for 708 yards and seven touchdowns, but the LSU running game is led by Keiland Williams at 46 yards per-game.

Georgia has been battle tested thus far in 2009 as the Bulldogs are 3-1 with wins over South Carolina, Arkansas, and Arizona State. All three wins are by single digits, including last week’s 20-17 win over the Sun Devils where the Bulldogs blocked a late field goal attempt by Arizona State while Blair Walsh converted two field goals in the fourth quarter to get the win. Georgia held the Sun Devils to 204 yards of offense, but the Bulldogs still rank second to last in the SEC in points and yards allowed per-game, as Georgia has faced tough offenses like the Razorbacks and Oklahoma State. On offense, Georgia has been led by Joe Cox, who has thrown for 980 yards and nine touchdowns on the season. A.J. Green has caught 25 passes for 428 yards and four touchdowns as well for the Bulldogs.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SPORTSBETTING.com have made Georgia 3-point home favorites over LSU on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 52.5.
