The Georgia Bulldogs thought that they could be a sleeper in the SEC and as long as they continue to produce 41.3 rebounds, they certainly could be. Georgia is a feisty basketball team at both ends of the floor that has a chance to put itself on the map in this game on the big stage.
Gonzaga is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Southeastern and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. Georgia is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 vs. West Coast and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
I like the direction the Georgia Bulldogs are heading and think they have enough expeirence and playmakers to make a game out of this. Georgia is a team that can make some noise in the SEC this season and this is the stage to prove it. Give me the SEC team and the points.
