Kentucky Wildcats Game Notes

Kentucky junior QB Will Levis completed 14-of-17 passes for 145 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 42-21 win vs. LSU. Levis (6'3/222) also posted 11 rushes for 75 yards and two touchdowns, accounting for a total of five scores. The Wildcats pass game was good, but the rushing game was the difference. Kentucky rumbled for 329 yards with three scores, going for 7.3 yards per attempt. It was the Connecticut-born signal caller's first game with three or more TD passes since he had four scoring strikes vs. ULM in the opener Sept. 4. It was his first game finding the end zone twice with his feet since Sept. 27, 2019 at Maryland. He'll try and keep up the good work in an SEC East showdown at Georgia next Saturday.

Georgia Bulldogs Game Notes

Georgia redshirt junior QB JT Daniels is on a pitch count in practice. Daniels (6'3"/210) is still recovering from a lat injury and the Bulldogs coaching staff has been taking it easy on him in practice. He threw the ball 30-40 times on Monday driving the ball upwards of 30 yards down the field. On Tuesday, he was more limited just throwing the ball a little bit. As the week has progressed, Daniels hasn't experienced a lot of soreness which is a good step for the starting QB. The Bulldogs face off against Kentucky on Saturday in a game that could decide the SEC East.

Kentucky vs. Georgia Week 7 Betting Prediction

The favorite has covered in six of the last eight meetings between these two teams while, conversely, the Wildcats are just 2-6 against the number in their last eight games versus the Bulldogs. Georgia is also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 4-1 against the number in their last five games as a favorite and are 23-11 ATS in their last 34 games following a win of more than 20 points.
