Randy’s Free Pick
The Tennessee Volunteers are the better team, obviously, and have the horses to blow the doors off, but Georgia has been decent in its own right and loses by an average of just 0.9 points as an underdog. The Georgia Bulldogs are a well above average defensive team and this line is a tad bit disrespectful, honestly. I'll grab the points.
