Georgia vs Vanderbilt Betting Prediction

Georgia comes into this game looking to snap their six game losing streak, and they have played very poor defense in those six games. The Bulldogs started the season with a pretty solid record, but things have gone downhill pretty quickly. Vanderbilt is one of the worst teams in the SEC, but they did pick up a great win against Texas A&M in their last home game. The Commodores are only shooting 39.3% from the field and they are also not very good defensively. This game could go either way, but I am going to take Georgia, as they have been the much better offensive team this year. Take the Bulldogs on the road.
