Georgia is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games and 5-1 ATS in their last six after an ATS loss. The over is 4-1 in the Bulldogs’ last five overall and 9-3-1 in their last 13 Wednesday games.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss and 0-5 ATS in their last five overall. Auburn is 0-4 ATS in their last four road games and the under is 6-2 in their last eight games overall.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Georgia. This is an important matchup for both teams, as they’re a combined 0-7 in their last seven games and needless to say, both squads need a victory. Georgia has been coughing up points in bushels over their last three, with 83 or more allowed in each. Auburn has been competitive for the most part in their last trio, but have scored 66 or fewer in two of them. I like the Bulldogs on a cover here a little better, but it should be a great matchup.
