November 11, 2017- 3:30 PM ET (TV CBS) Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, FL
The No. 1 team in all the land in the Georgia Bulldogs will put their top-ranking on the line when they pay a visit to Jordan-Hare Stadium to do battle against the No. 10 Auburn Tigers in an SEC clash on Saturday afternoon that has the following betting lines from our best sportsbooks;
Best Bulldogs Lines: 5Dimes Spread -2) ML -135
Best Tigers Lines: MyBookie Spread (+2.5) ML +110
Over/Under: BetOnline 49.0
Rolling along with a 9-0 (6-0 SEC) mark, the Bulldogs will have a tough task at hand against the Tigers, who at 7-2 (5-1 SEC) will seek to notch a marquee victory to improve their ranking and stay in the hunt for an SEC West title.
Georgia has already clinched the SEC East but know they must continue to run the table if they want to be there down the end for one of the four college football playoff berths. The Tigers for their part may also be able to throw their hat in the CFB race with a big on Saturday.
And, has we know in the SEC, it’s anybody’s game when it comes to winning on any given Saturday? Auburn will be up for a tough battle when they enter as slight underdogs, but at home where they know their home fans will be in a frenzy, they have to like their chances of pulling off the upset?
Last season back in Athens, the Bulldogs used a pick-six to notch the 13-7 home win; a loss that still sticks in the minds of the Tigers.
Georgia as a team is scoring 36.6 points on 445.7 yards per game, while allowing a paltry 11.7 points on 254.2 yards per contest.
Auburn counters with the combination of QB Jarrett Stidham and RB Kerryon Johnson, who combined are putting up 369.4 yards per game.
But, when it comes to playing the likes of Georgia, it will take a total team effort to send the Bulldogs packing. For sports betting purposes for our US players, 5Dimes is favoring UGA (-2) points, while MyBookie is giving the home Tigers (+2.5) points.
BetOnline delivers the over/under with 49.0 total game points scored. With too much Georgia I feel, I will favor the Bulldogs MINUS the points (-2) over Auburn for the win as my best betting pick.
