The Georgia Bulldogs were hoping to bounce back from their week one loss and run the table to get back in the National Title hunt but the dream died fast as they lost at home to Missouri on Saturday. Overall the Georgia offense has looked good this season averaging 37.5 points and 517.3 yards per game and turning the ball over just five times. QB Aaron Murray has completed 62.8 percent of his passes with 17 touchdowns and five interceptions and he has rushed for three touchdowns. The Georgia running game was one of the most feared in the nation but with Todd Gurley down and Keith Marshall out J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas are seeing the bulk of the action but it is simply tough to replace Gurley and Marshall. Chris Conley has 25 catches and four touchdowns, Michael Bennett has 14 catches and two touchdowns, and Arthur Lynch has 13 catches and two touchdowns. Georgia will need to bounce back from what was a devastating home loss to Mizzou.
Vanderbilt is 7-2 against the spread following a game in which they didn’t cover the point spread, 13-6 against the spread in their last 19 home games, and 1-7 against the spread in their last eight home games against a team with a winning road record. Georgia is 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight SEC games, 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games, and 0-6 against the spread following a double-digit home loss.
Vandy has been able to put up points and Georgia gives up points in bunches and while the Dawgs offense is one of the best in football conference games are still won and lost with the running games and defense and Georgia’s don’t merit a laying this number on the road.
