The Georgia Bulldogs and Kent State Golden Flashes clash Saturday night in a week 4 college football contest at Sanford Stadium. The Kent State Golden Flashes look to get back to a .500 record. The Georgia Bulldogs look for their fifth 4-0 start in the last 6 years.

The Golden Flashes are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. SEC. The Bulldogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Golden Flashes last 7 games in September. The under is 5-0 in Bulldogs last 5 games overall.

The Kent State Golden Flashes are obviously outmatched here and have no business staying in this game. You can argue Georgia is the best team in the league. With that said, Kent State is about as prepared for this game as it will ever be after playing teams like Washington and Oklahoma already. Also, Georgia is 4-11 against the spread in its last 15 games as a favorite of at least 30 points, and that includes a failed cover this year against Samford. Even with a big gap in talent, this is a boatload of points. Kent State has a top-25 rushing attack, which could lead to some clock eating for the road team. I’ll take a shot with the underdog.
