The Bulldogs are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games in December and 4-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Georgia is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 neutral-site games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven conference games.
Meanwhile, the Tide are 4-1 ATS in their last five as an underdog and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 after an ATS loss. The under is 4-1-1 in Alabama’s last six neutral-site games.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Georgia in this one. The Bulldogs have been on a tear for pretty much the whole season, and they thoroughly dismantled Georgia Tech in their last outing. Georgia posted 463 total yards and 21 first downs, notching zero penalties and no turnovers along the way.
As for Alabama, they get credit for toughing out a big win over Auburn, but it wasn’t pretty. The Tide posted 9-of-26 on third- and fourth-down tries while committing 11 penalties. Alabama has scored 24 or fewer points in two of their last three games, and I don’t think they’ll do so well against the Georgia defense. Should be a really fun game to watch, though.
