Massachusetts Minutemen

UMass senior WR Andy Isabella caught ten passes for 85 yards in Saturday's 35-16 loss to BYU. BYU wasn't going to let Isabella (5'10/190) beat them after the slot receiver posted 303 yards and two touchdowns just last week. Isabella was still able to post a PPR-friendly 10 receptions, but the 85 yards will go down as a "down game" with the way Isabella has been playing this season. Pro Football Focus has graded Isabella as the No. 1 wide receiver of 2018, and they note he has picked up more first downs than any other receiver. NFL eyes will be all over Isabella next week with his toughest test of the season, Georgia, on deck.

Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia sophomore QB Jake Fromm (leg) was able to start in Saturday's 27-10 win against Auburn, completing 13-of-20 passes for 193 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Fromm hasn't been putting up huge numbers, but he also hasn't been making many mistakes, either. He has managed 19 passing touchdowns with just five interceptions through his 10 starts this season. It also helps to have a strong run game to take the pressure off. Next up is a non-conference cupcake game against Massachusetts before the rivalry game against Georgia Tech on Thanksgiving weekend.

Betting Trends

Massachusetts

The Minutemen are 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games versus SEC opponents.

Georgia

The Bulldogs are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game.

Prediction

UMASS doesn’t play any defense but the Minutemen can move the ball through the air, averaging 299.0 passing yards per game, which ranks 18th in the nation. Georgia is likely to get up big in the second half and then start pulling starters early in the third quarter in preparation for the SEC title game a couple of weeks now. Granted, UGA’s second and third-stringers could score too but motivation is a factor here and I’ll side with the massive road dog that will care for all four quarters.
