The SEC is one of the best conferences in all of college football and they have plenty of great traditions that they bring to the gridiron every year. One of those traditions happens when the Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators face off every year. Although the name of the largest outdoor cocktail party has been snubbed by many, it still means that there is one great game on tap for Saturday.
Georgia Bulldogs at Florida Gators Odds
The college football odds for this game will reflect just how evenly matched that these two teams are. They both have identical records in the regular season as well as the SEC East and both are chasing the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Missouri Tigers in the standings. With two popular fan bases and one of the most anticipated games on the week 10 schedule, this game should see plenty of betting action.
If Florida has any chance of winning they need to make some changes. The Gators have continued to regress on offense, as they rank No. 106 in total offense (336.9 yards per game). This comes following consecutive seasons finishing in the bottom 20 nationally in total offense.
With no identity and few playmakers, it has been agonizing for Florida to even gain first downs in recent weeks. UF’s floundering offensive line has allowed 10 sacks in the past the two games, and its rushing attack has averaged a conference-worst 3.70 yards per carry. That could be good news for Georgia.
