Key Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are a perfect 8-0 against the spread in their last eight trips to Atlanta and the road team is also an impressive 16-4-1 at the betting window in the last 21 meetings between these two teams.
OUR PREDICTION: The over is 5-1 in the Bulldogs' last six games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a win, and is 4-1 in their last five games in November. In Georgia's last five games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in its previous game, the over is also 4-1.
On the other side, the over has hit in four of the Yellow Jackets' last five games overall. The over is also 4-0 in their last four games in November, is 4-1 in their last five games on grass, and is 13-6-1 in their last 20 non-conference games.
Both of these teams like to keep the ball on the ground, which means a running clock, which means take the under more times than not. But both of these teams can also hit the big play and I believe there will be more than enough big plays to push the combined score over the total.
