Georgia beat Kentucky four times in a row, and many sportsbooks that provide bookmaking solutions saw that in their last seven games, they won six times. However, in the last six meetings with the Bulldogs, the Wildcats are 4-2 ATS. In their efforts to make it back to the SEC Championship Game, Georgia will do their best in Lexington to defeat Kentucky on Saturday.
The betting line opened with Georgia being the favorites by 13 points.
Georgia were able to win four consecutive games before their last week’s showdown with the Florida Gators, where the Bulldogs suffered a 38-20 loss. An early lead of 7-0 was taken by Georgia, but in the middle of the second quarter, the ‘Dawgs allowed the play that turned the game on a TD that was a fake attempt for a field goal.
But they can’t really justify conceding 418 yards in their rushing game. However, in the SEC East, Georgia are just one game behind the Missouri Tigers, who are in first place, and they’re the ones who own the tiebreaker over Missouri after their win of 34-0 in Columbia some weeks back.
The Bulldogs’ defense has a ranking of 22nd overall in the country, which means that the win they clinched last week was by no means a normal occurrence. Many fans remember when Georgia were able to outgain Kentucky 602-211 last year, while moving to a win of 59-14 in Athens, where they were able to cover as the favorites by 26 points.
Being 5-4, Kentucky only need to win one more time so they can become contenders for a bowl for the very first time after four seasons played. The Wildcats recently lost to the LSU Tigers, top-ranked the Mississippi State Bulldogs, and then Missouri last week at 20-10. However, earlier during the season the Gators were taken to overtime by Kentucky, and they defeated the South Carolina Gamecocks.
MSU also had a very difficult meeting with the Wildcats, making it to within 38-31 with only two minutes remaining, but they ended up blowing the cover as the 14-point underdogs when they allowed a kickoff return with a score made. The Wildcats were able to hold Missouri to only 320 offensive yards, as they made it to within one field goal of pushing, being the dogs with seven-points.
The Bulldogs will try to recover after their loss last week to the Gators in the SEC East, and not leave the race. On the contrary, sportsbooks offering bookmaking solutions could see that the Wildcats did not yet prove that they’re able to hang out with the SEC’s bigger teams every week, as they lost their last three meetings against the more difficult schedule with a 35-15 average score. Therefore, the experts are going for Georgia.
