Should you really be laying four touchdowns with Georgia in NCAA betting on Saturday?
There is no doubt that the public is going to be all over Georgia in this game. In fact, they already are. The line has gone up on Georgia from where it opened as people are in love with the Bulldogs. The question to answer is whether that love affair is warranted or not.
Georgia is a 28 point favorite at Sbgglobal with the total on the game at 52.5. The Bulldogs are at home and have the higher profile but there are reasons to be worried if you are laying four TDs with Georgia.
Is UL Lafayette any Good? The Rajun Cajuns are not a household name. We know that much already. Their quarterback is Chris Masson who is a returning starter. UL Lafayette is no stranger to going on the road against tough competition. Two years ago they lost at Illinois but only by three points and at Kansas State but only by eight points. Last year they beat Kansas State 17-15 but lost to LSU and Nebraska in blowouts. There is some serious question as to whether or not Georgia is in the class of LSU or Nebraska.
Is Georgia Overhyped? The Bulldogs start the season ranked 23rd in the country. That ranking is based more on reputation than anything else. The Bulldogs are coming off an 8-5 season and they have a freshman quarterback and a revamped defense so you may want to show some caution when you bet college football and take the Bulldogs. Aaron Murray is the new quarterback and he will already be missing a key part of his backfield as Washaun Ealey is out for this game due to suspension. The Bulldogs do have A.J. Green and he is a big play receiver who had 53 receptions, 808 yards and six TDs last season.
