College Football Betting Line: Florida -2.5, O/U 48
The top two teams in the Eastern division of the SEC square off in what might be the most important game of the season for both teams. The Bulldogs started the season off with four easy wins against inferior foes before they ran into an Alabama team that was coming off a critical loss. Georgia’s QBs were only able to connect on 11 passes for 106 yards as the Tide secondary clamped down on Georgia’s receivers. While the offense got back on track against Tennessee the following week, it was the defense that gave up 519 yards and 38 points in the team’s second consecutive loss. After disposing of Missouri 9-6 in a defensive battle, the Bulldogs got a much needed week off to prepare for this key battle.
Meanwhile, the Florida Gators surprised a few teams by rolling over six straight opponents, including then #3 ranked Ole Miss 38-10. The winning streak came to an end after the Gators headed into Baton Rouge where the LSU Tigers took the Gators to task with a 35-28 victory. Over its last five games, the Gators have proven to be very one-dimensional on offense with a running game that has only averaged 89 YPG. They too have had an extra week to prepare for this showdown.
It’s quite apparent that both teams have issues with consistency and come into this game evenly matched on paper. The difference in the game might come down to the revenge factor. Last year, the Gators marched into Athens and gave then #11 ranked Georgia a thrashing 38-20, essentially dashing any hopes Georgia had of securing a spot in the Championship playoffs. In what figures to be a close game, take the points and look for Georgia to return the favor and close the door on Florida’s title hopes.
Bulldogs are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game
