The Line: Florida Gators -2.5 -- Over/Under: 46
The Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators face of on Saturday in Jacksonville in a week 9 SEC college football rivalry called The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
The Georgia Bulldogs are 5-2 this season and had a bye last week after beating Missouri to end a two game losing streak. The Georgia offense is averaging 33.1 points and 429.4 yards per game and they have turned the ball over nine times. Bulldog QB Greyson Lambert has completed 64.1 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns and two interceptions. Sony Michel has assumed the running back spot and he has 520 yards and four touchdowns and Malcolm Mitchell has 35 catches and four touchdowns. The Georgia defense is allowing 19.4 points and 307.9 yards per game with six interceptions, four fumble recoveries, and 13 sacks. Jake Ganus leads the Dawgs with 50 tackles, Tim Kimbrough has 46 tackles, and Leonard Floyd has 38 tackles. Georgia scored just nine points in their last game but it was good enough to get the win.
The Florida Gators are 6-1 this season and are coming off of a bye last weekend that followed their first loss of the season at unbeaten LSU. The Florida offense is averaging 31.6 points and 376.3 yards per game with five turnovers. Treon Harris has taken over at QB for UF replacing the suspended Will Grier and he has completed 61 percent of his passes with four touchdowns. Kelvin Taylor leads the Gators in rushing with 463 yards and eight touchdowns and Demarcus Robinson has 36 catches and two touchdowns. The Florida defense is allowing 17.3 points and 314.4 yards per game with seven interceptions, seven fumble recoveries, and 21 sacks. Antonio Morrison leads the Gators with 54 tackles, Jarrad Davis has 49 tackles, and Jonathan Bullard has 4.5 sacks. Florida is still looking at a chance to win the SEC East.
Georgia is 1-4 against the spread in their last five SEC games, 1-4 against the spread following a win, and 0-5 against the spread following a bye week. Florida is 9-2 against the spread following a bye week, 4-1 against the spread following a loss, and 11-4 against the spread in their last 15 neutral site games. Florida has covered the point spread in five of their last seven games against Georgia.
With the total set at 46 I like the under here but it is just a lean. My stronger play is on the winning team against the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area.
