The Georgia Bulldogs look for a nice SEC home win to build on their decent 4-2 record. The Georgia Bulldogs have won six of their last eight home games. Jacob Eason is completing 51.2 percent of his passes for 1,020 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. Eason has thrown one pick in each of his last five games. Isaiah McKenzie and Terry Godwin have combined for 538 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Isaac Nauta has 10 receptions. The Georgia Bulldogs ground game is averaging 215.6 yards per contest, and Nick Chubb leads the way with 546 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia is allowing 28 points and 367.8 yards per game. Natrez Patrick leads the Georgia Bulldogs with 36 tackles, Lorenzo Carter has two sacks and Juwuan Briscoe has two interceptions.
The Commodores are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Bulldogs are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on grass. The Commodores are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
Georgia is solid at home and has owned Vaderbilt over the years, which includes winning the last two games by a combined score of 75-31. The problem is the Georgia Bulldogs aren't as good as teams from the past and still have issues on the offensive end. If Chubb isn't running wild, the Bulldogs go several drives without doing much. Also, Vanderbilt has allowed an average of just 15.3 points per game in three SEC losses. The Commodores have struggles of their own, but Vandy does play good defense.
Georgia wins this game, but Vanderbilt keeps it close.
