The SEC is arguably one of the best conferences in all of college football. Although some teams are better than others, they always provide a good game to watch on any given weekend. In week six that game is the Georgia Bulldogs against the Tennessee Volunteers. The Bulldogs are off one of the biggest wins of the season and will have to focus on the Volunteers to make sure that they are not upset this week.
Georgia Bulldogs at Tennessee Volunteers Odds
The college football odds for this game opened up with the Bulldogs listed as (-10.5) favorites. That big line is due to the great victory a week ago.
The Bulldogs beat the Tigers in a very big win, but they had a big injury in that game. Todd Gurley went down with an ankle injury in the first half and never returned. That opened the door for Keith Marshall, and he responded as he rushed for 96 yards on 20 carries. It's unfortunate that Gurley could not finish the game because he was running the ball with authority. But the injury gave the coaches the opportunity to see if Marshall can carry the ball 20 times. The Bulldogs will now face an inconsistent Vol’s team.
The Tennessee rushing attack racked up 278 yards, but once again the passing attack was wildly inconsistent and nearly cost the Vols the game. Quarterback Justin Worley went the whole way and did have a period in the first half where he looked very good, throwing two TDs and even keeping on the option for positive yards to thunderous applause from fans, but he also threw three interceptions and stalled out drives with multiple inaccurate throws.
The latest college football betting trends for this game reveal some betting angles that cannot be ignored. The Volunteers are just 2-6 straight up in the last six games when playing at home against the Bulldogs. The Volunteers however are 5-1 straight up in the last six games in front of the home crowd, but they have been a bad bet going 2-8 ATS in the last ten games at home. After beating the LSU Tigers, the Bulldogs raised their record to 10-2 straight up in the last 12 games overall, however they are just 2-4 against the spread (ATS) in the last six games on the college football highway. It should be noted that the total has gone over in 11 of the last 15 games that the Volunteers have played in.
