Georgia is 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games, 4-0 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, and 43-19-1 against the spread in their last 63 SEC games. Auburn is 2-6 against the spread against the SEC, 1-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 0-6 against the spread in their last six road games. The home team has covered the point spread in five of the last six meetings of these two teams.
Auburn has been stinking it up of late and Georgia has been playing well so while it looks like a big number I see Georgia covering it.
