Tennessee vs. Georgia Prediction
Without Nick Chubb, will Georgia be able to hang with Tennessee today at 3:30PM ET in Athens?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bulldogs are 4-point home underdogs versus the Volunteers after opening as a 3-point underdog. The reason for the line change is the injury to Chubb, who is a game-time decision due to an ankle injury but reportedly won't play. As for the total, the number currently sits at 52 points, down from the opening number of 54.
The Volunteers are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games and are 4-1 against the number in their last five games playing in the month of October. They're also 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games overall and have covered in six straight when facing an opponent that owns a winning record.
The Bulldogs are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games and have failed to cover in all four of their last four games playing in the month of October. That said, they're 5-2 against the number in their last seven games following a loss and are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: The Volunteers are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games versus the Bulldogs and are 5-1 at the betting window in their last six games in Athens. This feels like a small trap with Tennessee only laying 4 points, but it's hard to back a Georgia team that needed a last-minute fourth-down touchdown pass to beat Missouri two weeks ago and one that was completely dismantled by Ole Miss last Saturday. Chubb or no Chubb, the Vols should win by a touchdown-plus.
