This game is normally a huge one on the national scene but not this time, as neither team is ranked. The game will still be featured on CBS though and should get some added attention in college football lines. Georgia is a 3-point favorite at Sbg global.
Georgia in the Race
You might have thought that Georgia was done this season but they have played much better in recent weeks and they actually could be playing in the SEC title game if things break just right. That would have seemed ludicrous to say that just a few weeks ago. A month ago this Georgia team was left for dead as they had lost four straight games. They were 0-3 in the SEC and it was over. How things change in college football. Georgia has recovered under head coach Mark Richt and won their last three SEC games and they are now 3-3 in the conference and very much in the race. The last three weeks they have scored 41, 43 and 44 points. It definitely helped when A.J. Green returned to the starting lineup. He is probably the best wide receiver in college football and makes a huge difference for the Bulldogs. Green opens up the field for other players. Last week it was Washaun Ealey running for 157 yards and five touchdowns. And redshirt freshman quarterback Aaron Murray continues to get better and better.
Florida is a Mess
On the other side, the Florida Gators come into this week off a bye and that is the best thing you can say about Florida. They have lost three straight games which is something that never happens at Florida. The Gators are 2-3 in the conference and a loss against Georgia would end their chances of reaching the SEC title game.
Florida has owned this series of late, winning the last three meetings. The Gators are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games. The Gators are 9-4 against the college football betting line in their last 13 games as an underdog. The Gators are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 conference games. The Bulldogs are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games. The Bulldogs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite. The total trend indicates that the Under is 5-2 in the Gators last 7 games in October. The Over in college football lines is 4-1 in the Bulldogs last 5 games in October.
