Rayshaun Hammonds is averaging 14.2 points and 6.4 rebounds while Nicolas Claxton is averaging 12.4 points and 2.3 assists. Tyree Crump is the third double-digit scorer and Derek Ogbeide is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Georgia Bulldogs are shooting 32.6 percent from beyond the arc and 72.4 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia Bulldogs are allowing 29.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.2 rebounds per game. The Georgia Bulldogs have lost two of their last three road games.
The Auburn Tigers look for another win after winning six of their last eight games. The Auburn Tigers are averaging 83.9 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 65.7 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Bryce Brown is averaging 15.9 points and 2.2 rebounds while Jared Harper is averaging 14.5 points and 6.7 assists.

The Bulldogs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Tigers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. Southeastern and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bulldogs are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Auburn and 1-8 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 vs. Southeastern. The under is 5-1 in Bulldogs last 6 overall.
The Georgia Bulldogs haven't been great on the road this season in a limited sample size, and Auburn has absolutely blitzed teams at home where they're shooting almost 48 percent from the field and winning by an average margin of 28.9 points. With that said, the Georgia Bulldogs are an impressive 10-4 ATS this season and have some roughriders on their squad who will up to the challenge. Georgia just spanked Vanderbilt, went toe-to-toe with Arizona State, and they should have some motivation for this contest after getting rocked by Auburn twice last season. Georgia has enough playmakers and experience to make a game of this. Give me the points.
