Georgia Betting Trends

The Bulldogs are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games, are 5-1 against the number in their last six games overall, and are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games versus a team with a winning record. That said, the Dawgs are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games played in the month of October.

Vanderbilt Betting Trends

The Commodores are 22-7 against the spread in their last 29 games when failing to cover the spread in their previous contest. That said, they're just 1-10 at the betting window in their last 11 home games when facing a team with a winning road record. They're also winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.

OUR PREDICTION: Georgia is 5-0 for the first time since 2012 and it's thanks in large part to a fast, aggressive defense, solid quarterback play, and a combination of Nick Chubb and Sony Michel in the backfield. That said, the one thing I like about Vanderbilt is that the Commodores are battle-tested coming into today. This will be the fourth straight week that the Commodores are playing a ranked team. Their defense has slipped a little, but they're still solid on that side of the ball and quarterback Kyle Shurmur gives them a shot every week. This is a much better, more experienced Georgia team than the one Kirby Smart had a year ago, but the Commodores did stun the Dawgs 17-16 last year. I think Vandy hangs today at home.
