Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Bulldogs are 7.5-point favorites to beat the Tigers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 47.5 points. As of this writing, 55% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Bulldogs.
Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm threw for three touchdowns and 276 yards while completing 17-of-23 passes in a 41-13 crushing of Vanderbilt on Saturday. Fromm had his first ever game without a touchdown in the win over Tennessee on Saturday, so he made up for it with a three-score effort against the hapless Vanderbilt defense. He showed his usual accuracy and touch on the football, and he showed off his underrated arm strength on a 75 yard pass to Terry Godwin. The sophomore signal-caller improves his TD/INT ratio to 12/2, and his completion percentage remains over 70 percent. The first real test of the year for Fromm and Georgia comes next Saturday against LSU.
LSU redshirt junior QB Joe Burrow completed 19-of-34 passes for 191 yards with two interceptions in a 27-19 loss to Florida on Saturday. Burrow had his best game at LSU last week in the blowout win over Ole Miss. Unfortunately for him, the Ohio State transfer had his worst game in the loss to the Gators on Saturday. He was hurt by drops, but he also was hurt by his own poor decisions, including picks on his final two drives; one of which was returned for a score. Burrow has to be more accurate and on time with the football if LSU is going to be a playoff contender. An even tougher test comes next Saturday against Georgia.
The over is 6-2 in the Bulldogs’ last eight road games.
The over is 7-2-2 in the Tigers’ last 11 games in October.
The over has been a great play in recent meetings between these two teams, cashing in six of the last seven series games. The over is also 5-1 in the Tigers’ last six games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and is 4-1 in the Bulldogs’ last five games versus a team with a winning record.
