Georgia Betting Trends

The Bulldogs are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall, so they've been an excellent play. They're also a perfect 4-0 at the betting window in their last four road games. Finally, they're an impressive 8-1 at the betting window in their last nine road games when playing an opponent that owns a winning home record.

The Volunteers are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games when facing a team with a winning record. They're 6-1 against the number in their last seven games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game, too. That said, they're just 7-20-1 against the spread in their last 28 home games versus a team with a winning road record.

OUR PREDICTION: There's no reason to take Tennessee when you look at this matchup. The Vols have major issues at quarterback, which is a horrible sign for a team getting ready to face one of the fastest, most aggressive defenses in the nation. Plus, Tennessee's defense struggles to stop the run, again, a problem when facing a two-headed monster in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. But with nearly 70% of bets on Georgia, this also feels like a trap game despite the fact that Tennessee beat the Bulldogs a year ago on a Hail Mary. But since 2011, this game has been decided by eight points or less in every meeting. Perhaps Georgia comes in overconfident and a little beat down after already beating Notre Dame and Mississippi State. I know it doesn't make sense statistically, but I like the Vols to keep things close this afternoon.
