Georgia has been laying decent ball as of late and has been even better at home. With a lot of upper classmen on this Bulldogs roster, Georgia is going to be motivated to make the best of this NIT experience. Belmont doesn't play much defense for my liking, which is going to beits downfall here.
Give me Georgia by double digits.
