The Georgia Bulldogs have been really good at home this season, but the Auburn Tigers have been the most consistent team in the SEC all year and has had no trouble winning on the road. Auburn is not only winning SU, but its covering numbers and just beat Georgia by 14 points a couple of weeks ago. Until Auburn gives you a reason to bet against it, you kind of have to keep rolling. Give me the reasonable number and the Tigers.
