The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a double-digit loss at home. The Volunteers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 conference games. The Bulldogs are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 meetings.
This is an interesting line, as I have zero trust in Georgia after it laid an egg against Alabama and has a long history under coach Mark Richt of coming up short in big games. Also, Tennessee can’t hold a lead at all and is still searching for that big win under Butch Jones.
Can either of these teams make up their mind?
While I may be crazy, I’m siding with the Vols simply because they’re at home and have to be getting tired of this blowing leads thing. Eventually that blind squirrel is going to find a nut, right?
