It is no surprise to those who bet college football that in Week 11 Auburn is the favorite over the 4 loss Georgia Bulldogs, but can they actually COVER the Week 11 college football point spread? The sure answer will happen sometime after the 3:30 ET kickoff at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia this Saturday, November 12th but I think I can give you the answer now.
Auburn is 7-2 this year holding on to 2nd place in the SEC West going 5-1 in the Conference. The Tigers are 7-2-0 against the spread. Georgia is 5-4 straight up on the season. The Bulldogs are 4-5 ATS so far in 2016.
Auburn Vs Georgia Spread & ATS Pick
Auburn opened as a -10.0 point visiting favorite against Georgia, and the Week 11 college football point spread is holding at 10 but bound to go up. The total seems a bit high for this rivalry at 49.0 points if you ask me or read me.

Bet on Auburn -10.0 Because…
Georgia is just a speed bump for Auburn on the way to greater things like Alabama the next week! Seriously, the Tigers have a 6 game winning streak with losses only to perennial No. 2 Clemson (the other Tiger meat) and top 10 Texas A&M early in the year. The question is should you bet on Auburn to cover the Week 11 college football point spread?
What most people don’t understand about Auburn (besides the hair color) is that the Tigers have one of the most solid and balanced teams on both sides of the ball in the nation. They are in the top 25 for overall offense and defense with the 3rd best rushing team in the FBS.
Bet on Georgia +10.0 Because…
In head to head matchups the last 3 seasons Georgia is 2-0 ATS playing Auburn in a traditionally low scoring game. Wait, that is not all I have…
Georgia dominated possession a year ago, and this game is going to come down to a couple stubborn running sides. The Georgia defense is allowing less than 120 yards a game rushing and expects to do the same to the 3rd best rushing offense in the FBS averaging 300 yards on the ground.
Now the question is, can Georgia cover the Week 11 college football point spread in this tilt?
“It’s one of best, I mean, it’s one of greatest rivalries in college football, when you talk about Georgia and Auburn,” UGA coach Kirby Smart said. “I think historically it’s been very balanced. I mean, there’s some similarities in the two stadiums, similarities in the programs.”
It is difficult for me to see Georgia beating Auburn straight up again this year for the 3rd year in a row, but I also don’t see a blowout by Auburn who is clearly the superior team overall.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
This looks to be another grind it out game like the last 2 years, and the best college bet for this game is probably Under 49 points on the total. BTW, last year they scored 33 points total and in 2014 they scored 41.
Auburn and LSU are both sporting decent defenses with the Georgia Bulldogs ranked 16 in total defense and the Auburn Tigers ranked 25. This is the main basis for making football betting picks on both the underdog and the under total.
