Auburn winning with defense
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 this year, 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 afternoon. Seth Williams is the team’s leading receiver with 35 catches for 569 yards and eight touchdowns.
Bulldogs picking up steam
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 as well, 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.
College Football Betting Trends
The Tigers are 5-0-1 with the over in their last six following a bye, but 10-4 with the under in their last 14 games in November.
The Bulldogs have hit the under in four straight conference games and in five of their last six following a win.
These two have hit the under in seven of their last nine encounters. Auburn is a team that can’t win a shootout, so the Tigers are going to have to keep the score low in this one. Georgia has the better offense, but the Bulldogs haven’t really been lighting up the scoreboard. I think Auburn will continue to keep Georgia’s points low and the Tigers will probably struggle to grind out scoring drives against this strong Georgia defense. I like the under to hit today in an ugly football game.
