The Georgia Bulldogs will try and get back into the College Football Playoff race as heavy road favorites in this Saturday’s SEC East Division matchup against the surprising Kentucky Wildcats. Game time from Kroger Field on CBS is set for 3:30 p.m.
The Bulldogs quickly bounced back from a damaging 36-16 loss to LSU as seven-point road favorites with last Saturday’s redeeming 36-17 victory at home against Florida as seven-point favorites. With one loss, they will need to win out including a victory in the SEC Championship to get back into the playoff picture and it all starts with this game. Georgia is 7-1 straight-up on the year with an even 4-4 record against the spread and the total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing line in its last two games.
Jake Fromm completed 17 of his 24 passing attempts for 240 yards and three touchdowns in last Saturday’s victory against Florida. D’Andre Smith lead the way on the ground with 104 of Georgia’s 189 rushing yards in that game and the Bulldogs got back to playing shutdown defense on the other side of the ball. This is the same exact recipe it needs to use in the Saturday’s matchup against the Wildcats.
Kentucky first started turning heads with an early-season 27-16 road upset at Florida as a 13.5-point underdog with BetAnySports. On its way to a 7-1 SU (4-4 ATS) start, it also beat Mississippi State as a 10-point home underdog and most recently Missouri 15-14 last Saturday as a 7.5-point underdog on the road. The lone loss of the season was against Texas A&M by six points as a 5.5-point road underdog. The total has stayed UNDER in the Wildcats last five games.
The key to Kentucky’s success this season on offense has been a ground game that is averaging 214.0 yards a game behind Benny Snell Jr. with 935 yards rushing and nine touchdown runs on 179 carries. Quarterback Terry Wilson has 988 passing yards on 100 completions, but he has also gained 406 yards running the ball. The Wildcats’ defense has stepped up its game with a points-allowed average of 13.0.
Georgia took its eye off the prize once this season as a road favorite against LSU, but the Bulldogs will not make the same mistake this Saturday with a road at Kentucky win both SU and ATS.
