Georgia opened up well this season with three convincing victories in a row. The Bulldogs beat Arkansas 37-10, then Auburn 27-6 and Tennessee 44-21. Georgia’s first loss came October 17 versus Alabama 41-24 in a pretty sobering blowout.

Over on the Kentucky side, there have been quite a few ups and downs already this season. The Wildcats fell 29-13 to Auburn and 42-41 to Mississippi (overtime) before getting two big wins over Mississippi State 24-2 and Tennessee 34-7. Kentucky was back in the loss column against Missouri last weekend though, 20-10.
In the loss to the Tigers, Kentucky quarterback Terry Wilson posted 35 yards and one touchdown. Three completions went to Josh Ali, who finished with 44 yards and a score. Chris Rodiguez was the top rusher on 48 yards from nine carries.
The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a favorite and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games after an ATS loss. Georgia is 20-8 ATS in their last 28 road games and 2-5 ATS versus a team with a losing record.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats are 4-0 ATS in the last four games after an ATS win and 6-0 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Kentucky is 4-1 ATS in the last five games after a straight-up loss and 4-1 ATS in their last five as an underdog.
PICK: I’m going with Georgia. Kentucky is kind of difficult to trust right now, considering how badly they were beaten in every facet of the game last weekend. The Wildcats had just 145 total yards, eight first downs and ran just 36 total plays to Missouri’s 92. Provided the Bulldogs can find a little offensive rhythm early and can keep the Kentucky offense off the field, I don’t see too many reasons not to think Georgia can cover.
