Georgia is 0-4 against the spread in their last four SEC games, 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games, and 1-8 against the spread following a double-digit home loss. Kentucky is 1-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 3-9 against the spread following a loss, and 7-10 against the spread in their last 26 road games.
We have two teams falling way short of expectations and while two touchdowns seems like a big number to cover for Georgia Kentucky is pretty much unplayable right now.
