Georgia 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 Tigers

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.

Betting Trends

Georgia

The Bulldogs are 19-7 against the spread in their last 26 road games and 8-3 against the number in their last 11 games overall.

LSU

The Tigers are 9-4 against the number in their last 13 games overall and 8-1 against the spread in their last nine conference games.

Prediction

Georgia hasn’t been tested yet but that doesn’t mean the Bulldogs won’t erupt and put the Tigers away eventually. Florida’s exposed LSU’s issues in pass protection and while Georgia doesn’t have the same pass rush it had a year ago, the Bulldogs should still stop the run effectively and force Joe Burrow into a turnover or two. I’m laying the points with the better team.
