Tennessee is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams in Georgia.
I’m definitely impressed with what Tennessee’s brought to the table and while the Vols showed some grit in that road win against South Carolina to open things up, I need to see more than a win over Missouri to think that the Vols will successfully go on the road here and take down Georgia. Yes, Tennessee’s played well dating back to last year, but Georgia’s a different animal, especially in the SEC, and the Bulldogs just shut down a pretty good Auburn team like they weren’t even there. I think this could be an ugly result for Tennessee, perhaps something in the form of a 31-14 win for the Dawgs, so I’ll lay the points with Georgia here.
