In a slated 3:30 p.m. start on CBS from Athens, the No. 9 Florida Gators take on the No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs in an important SEC showdown in the East Division.
The Gators’ lone loss of the season verse six straight-up wins came against Kentucky at home early in the year. Since then, they have knocked off Mississippi State on the road and LSU at home as underdogs to climb all the way to No. 9 in the AP Top 25. A win on Saturday could put them into the mix for a spot in the College Football Playoff. Betting on Florida has been a winning proposition with a 6-1 record against the spread on BetAnySports’ closing line.
Defense paved the way for the earlier upset against LSU and the Gators are going to have to step things up again to slow down the Bulldogs. This unit is currently ranked 15th in the nation in points allowed (16.6). Florida is also going to need a big day from a running game that is averaging 197.3 rushing yards a game.
Georgia was on the fast track to another spot in the four-team playoff until those plans got derailed in a stunning 36-16 loss to LSU as a seven-point road favorite heading into last week’s bye. The Bulldogs have failed to cover in three of their last four games as part of a 3-4 record ATS overall. The total went OVER 49.5 points in the loss to LSU after staying UNDER in three of their previous four games.
This is another SEC team that relies heavily on moving the ball down the field running the ball on offense and keeping opposing teams out of the end zone on defense. Georgia has the added dimension of Jake Fromm at quarterback. He has thrown for 1,409 yards and 13 touchdowns. The Bulldogs are averaging 39.6 points per game while giving up an average of 16.3 PPG.
The line in this game opened at seven with the early money coming in on the Gators. The extra half point now favoring the Bulldogs is a tempting play, but I am still going with the UNDER 52 points on BetAnySports’ total line with each team’s defense stepping up its game on Saturday.
