The Auburn Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Stegeman Coliseum.

The Auburn Tigers could use a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Auburn Tigers are averaging 79.7 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 68.5 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Bryce Brown is averaging 15.9 points and 2.1 rebounds while Jared Harper is averaging 15.1 points and 5.9 assists. Chuma Okeke is the third double-digit scorer and Austin Wiley is grabbing 4.9 rebounds. The Auburn Tigers are shooting 38.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.3 percent from the free throw line. The Auburn Tigers are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.3 rebounds per game. The Auburn Tigers have lost four of their last five road games.

The Georgia Bulldogs could also use a win to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Georgia Bulldogs are averaging 73.8 points on 44.8 percent shooting and allowing 75.2 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Nicolas Claxton is averaging 12.7 points and two assists while Rayshaun Hammonds is averaging 12.6 points and 6.3 rebounds. Tyree Crump is dishing 1.7 assists and Derek Ogbeide is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Georgia Bulldogs are shooting 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 71.7 percent from the free throw line. The Georgia Bulldogs are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.6 rebounds per game. The Georgia Bulldogs have lost their last four home games.

The Tigers are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS loss, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Bulldogs are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games. The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Georgia and 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Tigers last 4 overall. The under is 4-1 in Bulldogs last 5 overall.

The Auburn Tigers beat Georgia by 15 points in the previous meeting and has beaten the hell out of them in the previous three meetings overall, winning by an average of 18.6 points during that span. With that said, Auburn has been shaky on the road this season, which includes losing by an average of 4.4 points and being just 4-7-1 ATS. The Georgia Bulldogs are 10-5 ATS at home this season where they win by an average of 6.4 points and allow just 40.8 percent shooting. Georgia has also been on the wrong side of some brutal losses, as their last three games alone have been decided by a combined six points. I want the points here.

Pick:
Georgia +8
