The Georgia Bulldogs are 19-10 this season and are coming off a loss at Kentucky that ended a three game winning streak. Georgia is averaging 69 points and they are shooting 43.6 percent while defensively they are allowing 64.5 points and their opponents are shooting 38.8 percent. Marcus Thornton leads the Bulldogs averaging 12.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.

Georgia is 7-4 on the road and 10-7 in the SEC.
Auburn is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games, 0-6 against the spread in their last six home games, and 0-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Georgia is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games, 8-3-2 against the spread following a loss, and 7-3 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. The favorite has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
The total is at 140 but that looks a shade high so my free pick here is under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
