The hopes that Georgia and Auburn had to make it to the national championship could be lost after each team was beaten twice, but sportsbook software services can see that there is still plenty of action for these teams as they face each other in an SEC game on Saturday night. The Bulldogs are in an effort to clinch the division title of the SEC East, and are 6-2 ATS in the last eight games played against the Tigers.
The betting line opened with Georgia being the favorites by two points.
Auburn are leaving a very impressive 41-38 loss at home last week to Texas A&M as the home favorites by 23.5 points, perhaps anticipating this showdown with Georgia. The Aggies 5 fell consecutive times ATS before they won, and they did not look alive at all.
Before they lost to Texas A&M, Auburn gave Ole Miss their season’s first loss, at 35-3 as the underdogs on the road by one point. Actually, in the last three meetings that they played as a road underdog, Auburn are 3-0 ATS, and they’re 5-1 ATS in their last six games on the road against opponents in the SEC.
The Bulldogs will be playing their next meeting at home, where they’re 24-1 SU in their last 25 meetings as the favorites. Georgia are also 11-1 SU in the last 12 games that they played at home against opponents in the SEC, with the only defeat coming last year when they took on Missouri in a loss of 41-26 as the favorites by 6.5 points.
They’re leaving a very big 63-31 win on the road last Saturday when they took on Kentucky as the favorites by 10 points behind four TD’s from QB Hutson Mason, who ended up tossing all of them while he was able to complete 11 out of the first 13 passes that he made.
Bulldogs RB Nick Chubb was also able to rush for 170 yards and one TD for the Bulldogs, taking the place of Todd Gurley, who was suspended.
Georgia are set to take on an Auburn side considered by many experts to be a bit flimsy, especially after they were beaten by Texas A&M last week. Sportsbook software services saw that the week before that, the Bulldogs lost at home to Florida as the favorites by 12 points, but got back in the game after they thrashed the Kentucky Wildcats on the road.
The Tigers were beaten in four out of the last five games on the road against the Bulldogs both ATS and SU, which include each one of their last three meetings. When you take the recent history in the series, adding it with a very solid performance by Georgia at home lately, they have the best opportunity to cover in this upcoming meeting.
