Georgia Preview 

The Georgia Bulldogs are 16-14 (6-11) this year after they defeated Ole Miss by a score of 69-66 in their last game. Georgia led 35-32 at the half and they were able to barely hang on for the win in the second half. The Bulldogs shot 43.9% from the field and were +9 in rebounding margin in the game. Georgia had lost their previous three games against Texas A&M, LSU, and Auburn. The Bulldogs are scoring 74.9 points per game with 35.6 rebounds per game and 11.6 assists per game, while allowing 74.2 points against per game this year. Noah Thomasson is averaging 12.8 points per game, 2.8 rebounds per game, and 1.6 assists per game. Georgia is shooting 43% from the field, 73.9% on free throws, and 33.1% on three pointers this season. 

Auburn Preview

The Auburn Tigers are 23-7 (12-5) this season after they defeated Missouri by a score of 101-74 in their last game. Auburn led 44-39 at halftime and they scored 57 points in the second half for the blowout win. The Tigers shot 52.3% from the field and were +13 in rebounding margin in the game. Auburn defeated Mississippi State by a score of 78-63 in the game prior to Missouri, but lost to Tennessee before that.

Georgia vs Auburn Betting Prediction

Auburn comes into this matchup with a 12-5 conference record and they are tied for second in the SEC with three other teams. The Tigers have won three of their last four games and they will be at home for this game. Georgia has lost three of their last four, but did pick up a win over Ole Miss last time out. The Bulldogs have had some defensive issues this season, allowing 74.2 points against per game. Auburn won the first meeting between these teams by a score of 97-76 on the road and I don’t see how this game is any different. Auburn is clearly the better team and they absolutely need a win here. Take the Tigers to win big.
