Georgia Vs Auburn

Georgia is Favored in the 121st Edition of “The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry”

The Georgia Bulldogs are ranked #1 in the College Football Playoff rankings and they hit the road to battle the 10th-ranked Auburn Tigers. The bitter rivals will battle at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Kick-off is set for 3:30 pm EST and will be televised nationally by CBS.

“The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry” will have its 121st edition on Saturday afternoon. The two have been playing since the late 1892, and Georgia leads the series 57-55-8.

This year, the stakes are pretty high. Georgia is the No. 1 team in the country with legitimate Playoff hopes, as they have clinched the SEC East. Auburn, even with losses to Clemson and LSU, still has a shot at making the top 4. But it is a long-shot. They would need to beat Georgia twice and Alabama once.

Oddsmakers have Georgia as 2.5-point favorites. The total is sitting at 49.

The Bulldogs beat Auburn last year in Athens 13-7. It was a slobber-knocker of a game in which Georgia’s only touchdown came on a pick six by Maurice Smith.

Auburn is in Must Win Mode Against Georgia

In their last action, Auburn was a 42-27 winner on the road against the Texas A&M Aggies. They earned a push of the -15-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (69) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

The Tigers’ offense has been clicking since losing to LSU 27-23 on Oct. 14 in Baton Rouge. Auburn has outscored Arkansas and Texas A&M by a combined 94-47 margin the last two weeks. The numbers are largely due to the play of quarterback Jarrett Stidham and running back Kerryon Johnson. Both of them account for 369.4 yards of offense per game.

The Tiger defense is one of the most sound in the country. They allow just 2.9 points per scoring opportunity (first downs inside your 40), lowest in the country.

Georgia Look to Keep Playing Solid Football on Both Sides of Ball

Last time out for Georgia, they were a 24-10 winner as they battled the South Carolina Gamecocks at home. Georgia failed to cover as a -23.5-point favorite, while 34 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Georgia Head Coach Kirby Smart knows all too well what the environment is like at Auburn. He has experience as a former player at UGA and his years coaching at Alabama.

Even Notre Dame, which has rolled over the rest of its schedule with an average of 358.5 rushing yards per game. They only managed a paltry 55 against Georgia on just 1.5 yards per carry. There’s some minor concern over the secondary though. That is based mainly on the fact that it allowed a pair of long touchdown passes against Missouri on Oct. 14

Despite reduced workloads, Nick Chubb and Sony Michel are both on pace to eclipse 1,000 yards in the regular season. The underclassman trio of D’Andre Swift, Elijah Holyfield and Brian Herrien chipping in an additional 88 yards per game between them.

Jacob Fromm leads the SEC in pass efficiency and ranks third nationally, which is not a fluke. There have been games where Fromm has looked like a seasoned veteran with a firm command of the playbook (Mississippi State, Missouri, South Carolina).

He also have games where he’s looked like an erratic freshman (Notre Dame, Tennessee). Then you throw in games where he was asked to do so little his presence seemed incidental (Vanderbilt, Florida).
