College Basketball Betting Trends
The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings. The road team is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Bulldogs are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games after three or more consecutive losses. Georgia is 0-5 straight up in the last five meetings.
Auburn blasted Georgia by a count of 82-60 last month and aside fro the defeat at Missouri, it has had a very strong season overall. The Tigers have been inconsistent on the road, but has shown plenty of fight in most matchups and I think they have the personnel to overmatch the Bulldogs. Look for Auburn to put together one of its better road performances of the season tonight against the lesser foe.
