The Georgia Bulldogs play just their third game of the season and hope to get above .500. The Georgia Bulldogs are averaging 76.5 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 72 points on 37.6 percent shooting. Kenny Gaines is averaging 23.5 points and three rebounds while J.J. Frazier is averaging 15 points and five assists. Yante Maten is the third double-digit scorer and Charles Mann is grabbing 5.5 rebounds.

The Panthers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games and 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Bulldogs are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Wednesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.
If the Georgia Bulldogs are going to be a legit threat in the SEC this season, they should be able to win games like this rather easily. Nothing against High Point, who has played well out of the gate, but Georgia has better athletes and guys who can takeover games. I look for the Bulldogs to win this by double digits. If not, something is wrong in Athens.
