The Line: Florida Gators -2.5 -- Over/Under: 48
The Georgia Bulldogs and Florida Gators square off Saturday afternoon at EverBank Field.
The Georgia Bulldogs look for their first win over a ranked team to become bowl eligible. Greyson Lambert is completing 64.1 percent of his passes for 1,276 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions. Lambert has two passing touchdowns in his last three games. Malcolm Mitchell and Terry Godwin have combined for 708 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Sony Michel has 16 receptions. The Georgia Bulldogs ground game is averaging 215.5 yards per contest, and Michel leads the way with 508 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia is allowing 19.4 points and 307.9 yards per game. Jake Ganus leads the Bulldogs with 50 tackles, Dominick Sanders has two interceptions and Jordan Jenkins has three sacks. Isaiah McKenzie and Reggie Wilkerson are questionable while Dominick Sanders is suspended for the first half.
The Florida Gators look for their fifth SEC win to remain in the playoff conversation. Treon Harris is completing 61 percent of his passes for 540 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions. Harris has 59 pass attempts this season. Demarcus Robinson and Antonio Callaway have combined for 679 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Brandon Powell has 20 receptions. The Florida Gators ground game is averaging 126.7 yards per contest, and Kelvin Taylor leads the way with 463 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, Florida is allowing 17.3 points and 314.4 yards per game. Antonio Morrison leads the Gators with 54 tackles, Vernon Hargreaves, III has three interceptions and Jonathan Bullard has 4.5 sacks. Alex Anzalone and Marcell Harris are questionable.
The Gators are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a bye week and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Bulldogs are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games in October and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Gators are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
Georgia is banged up on the offensive side of the ball and the Gators have had an extra week for Harris to get on the same page. Add in the Gators top defense, I like the Gators and the small chalk here.
