As we move on in the 2015 NCAA Football season and into the Week 6 of the regular season we have an upcoming game that should prove very interesting between 2 SEC East rivals, with No. 19 Bulldogs of Georgia 4-1 (2-1 SEC East) playing at the Volunteers of Tennessee 2-3 (0-2 SEC East) with the game to be played on Saturday the 10th of October 2015 at the Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee and kick-off is scheduled for 3:35 PM ET and can be seen on ESPN TV.
The opening odds at SBG Global.com have the Bulldogs of Georgia favored at -3 -105 with the Over/under 55 ½ and -150 on the Money Line, while the Volunteers of Tennessee are the underdogs at +3 and +130 on the Money Line.
The Volunteers started this season with 2 wins and then lost 3 of their last 4 games to date and are ranked very low in the SEC East, and if they are going to turn their season around they need a win this weekend against the Bulldogs.
For those that Bet on College football and are a fan of the Bulldogs of Georgia, your team had their way in their 1st weeks of the season as they were 4-0 overall and 3-0 at home until this past weekend. Yes, your Bulldogs came up against the Crimson Tide of Alabama who out bullied the Dogs and won the game 38-10 for the Georgia 1st loss of 2015. Alabama got off to a quick start as they took a 24-3 lead to half-time, and then never slowed down. Their QB J. Coker was almost perfect in running the offense, as he completed 11 of 16 of his pass attempts for some 192 yards and 1 TD. Plus he also carried the ball 6 times for 26 yards in total. On the other side the Georgia QB G. Lambert who had had high stat games in earlier games, struggled this time as he completed only 10 of his 24 attempts for a mere 84 yards and was intercepted on his final pass of that game.
Redemption will be what the Bulldogs will be seeking this Saturday as the travel to Tennessee for a Week 6 showdown with the Volunteers who are seeking to end their losing skid this weekend.
For the Bulldogs to win, it will rely on how they can handle the Tennessee’s front 7 that has allowed opponents to average 4.46 yards each carry in the 1st 5 games of the Season, and that ranks 4th most in the SEC to date.
Georgia would like to see their RB N. Chubb continue his offensive performance and leading the team in their rushing game. In their loss to the Tide he had extended in 100 yard game streak to 13 consecutive games even with the loss to Alabama in which he had 20 carries for some 147 yards, with 1 being for 83 yards in the 3rd quarter for a TD.
On defense Georgia’s front 7 will be busy up against the Tennessee rushing game that has average 225 yards each game and are ranked 3rd in the SEC. The Bulldogs in their last 10 games on the road are 7 and 3 straight up.
For the fans of the Volunteers of Tennessee your team this past Saturday suffered another loss at the hands of the Razorbacks of Arkansas 24-20 for the second straight loss. The team offensively and defensively could not perform when it was need in the stretch, and also were overcame by 2 Arkansas RB’s in A. Collins and R. Williams who together combined for 2 TD’s and some 42 carries for a total of 256 yards.
That loss was another that has been difficult to accept, since they have lost 3 of their ultimate 4 games, as they failed to hold a 2 TD advantage in 2 of those losses.
If Tennessee is to upset the Bulldogs in this game they will need continue their successful running game that has averages on each carry some 4.66 yards to date and that’s 3rd in the SEC, but they also need to pick up their passing game performance and beat the Georgia defensive secondary.
Defensively the Volunteers will face a tough task stopping the Bulldog running game that in the SEC is ranked 2nd overall. The Volunteers in the ultimate 10 games at home are 5 and 5 straight up.
The prediction for this game between SEC East rivals is that the Volunteers will surprise all and beat the Bulldogs in a close game at home with the final score Vols 28 and Dogs 24!
