Following a 36-16 loss at LSU the Georgia Bulldogs were written off as a top tier playoff contender. But since that Bet on College Football debacle the Bulldogs are fully back in the conversation. Georgia flexed its muscles last week in a 34-17 payout at Kentucky to clinch the SEC East Division. What’s more UGA is combining a strong yet balanced offense with exceptional defense. The Auburn Tigers pulled one out of the hat last week in a comeback home win over Texas A&M. Yet that does not take away from the doubts about coach Gus Malzahn’s deteriorating program.

Auburn vs. Georgia TV Coverage: ESPN
Auburn has a bet on College Football record of 6-3 straight up but 4-5 vs. the odds and 3-6 under the total. Last week Auburn was gifted a 28-24 win as Texas A&M turnovers helped blow a 24-14 Aggies lead. War Eagle was outgained 421-278 as A&M held a 28-13 first down advantage. Initially Gus Malzahn was celebrated as an offensive genius when he led Aubie to the national title game in 2013. However, since that time his zone read has been dissected and checked by opposing defenses. Now Auburn is known for subpar offensive production.
Georgia has a sportsbook record of 8-1 straight up and 5-4 against the spread with 4-4-1 on totals. Last Saturday the Bulldogs showed upstart Kentucky who is boss with a dominant win. UGA outgained the Wildcats 444-310 and powered to 331 yards rushing. Overall the Bulldogs rank 10th in the nation for scoring defense and 20th for scoring offense. Although Georgia has their ticket punched for the SEC championship game they have much to play for. As a matter of fact, they must win out for a shot at the college football playoff.
Stats to Consider
Auburn has failed to cover five of their last seven games as a road dog. Seven of their last 11 in that role have gone over the total. Balanced against that is Georgia’s struggles as a home chalk. To show the Bulldogs have covered just six of their last 19 laying points at Sanford Stadium. Six of their last eight in that situation have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
Georgia has dominated this head to head series with Auburn. Consider the Bulldogs have paid out in six of their last eight against War Eagle. Also, six of those eight games went under the total. Additionally, at Sanford Stadium UGA has had a lock on the cashier’s cage. To illuminate the Bulldogs have paid in five straight home games against Auburn. Only one of those five games went over the total.
Matchup to Watch
Compared to before their loss at LSU the Bulldogs are peaking at the right time. By contrast Auburn continues to lack consistent bet on College Football value. More emphatically their incoherent offense should be mauled by the elite Georgia defense. Decidedly that’s the matchup difference here.
