Georgia is 6-2 against the spread following a win, 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four games, and 27-11-1 against the spread against the SEC. Vanderbilt is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games, 35-17-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 8-3 against the spread on the road against a team with a home winning percentage better than .600. The road team has covered the point spread in seven of the last eight meetings of these two.
While this is a big number Vandy clearly is rebuilding and they are just a few pieces of the puzzle short so my play here is Georgia.
