Bulldogs on a win streak
Georgia is riding a three-game win streak right now following a 27-0 win over Missouri at home last weekend. The Bulldogs are now 8-1 on the season, 5-1 in the SEC, 5-4 against the spread and 7-2 with the under.
The Bulldogs have been led this season by their physical defense that is allowing just 10.1 points and 260.7 yards per game. Offensively, Georgia is putting up 33.7 points and 449.7 yards per contest. Jake Fromm has thrown for 1,858 yards and 13 touchdowns to lead the offense while D’Andre Swift has run for 921 yards and seven scores. Lawrence Cager has caught 32 passes for 470 yards and four touchdowns.
Auburn edges Ole Miss
The Auburn Tigers are coming off a 20-14 win at home over Ole Miss two weeks ago to bounce back from a 23-20 loss at LSU. Auburn is now 7-2 on the season, 4-2 in the SEC, 7-2 against the spread and 5-4 with the under.
Auburn is a strong defensive team as well, allowing just 17.4 points and 334.1 yards per game. Offensively, Auburn is putting up 32.7 points and 425.6 yards per contest. Bo Nix has thrown or 1,798 yards and 12 touchdowns in his freshman year while also rushing for 214 yards and five scores. JaTarvious Whitlow is the team’s leading rusher with 553 yards and seven touchdowns, but he missed the last game with a knee injury and is questionable to play this Saturday. Seth Williams is the team’s leading receiver with 35 catches for 569 yards and eight touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 SEC games and 22-7 ATS in their last 29 road games.
The Tigers are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight home games and 5-0 ATS in their last five games following a bye.
Georgia has won and covered the spread in seven of the last nine meetings with Auburn. The Tigers have struggled to do much offensively against the Bulldogs. I think that can happen this time around as well, but I think Georgia is going to struggle on offense as well. The Bulldogs haven’t been lighting up anyone for over a month, losing to South Carolina in OT and only besting Florida by seven. Auburn is a strong defensive team that hung tough with LSU on the road. While the Tigers may struggle to find scoring, I think their defense will keep them in this game. I see things coming down to the final possession and will allow Auburn to stay within seven points.
