Why Bet On Georgia (-21) To Beat Vanderbilt
Georgia’s offense is one of the most explosive in the nation.
The Georgia Bulldogs were supposed to be a one trick pony of a team on offense. Running back Nick Chubb, a Heisman Trophy contender, was supposed to be who the Bulldogs leaned on in the early part of the season before their starting QB, Greyson Lambert, got it going.
What Georgia ended up doing was simply let Lambert go off early in the game. Lambert only passed for 121 yards, but he threw 2 touchdowns. He also completed 66.7% of his passes. When Lambert left the game, Brice Ramsey completed a single pass for a TD. The problem with facing Georgia is that if Lambert is playing well, the Bulldogs will be almost impossible to beat.
The running back position is incredibly deep. Even though Chubb did the bulk of the work when rushing for 120 yards, Keith Marshall rushed for 73 yards from only 10 carries. He averaged 7.3 yards per carry and ran for 2 touchdowns. Georgia racked up 435 total yards. 243 of those yards were acquired via rushing.
The Bulldogs will have no trouble winning this game and covering the spread by a mile. If Georgia needed another reason to win this game, Vanderbilt provided it.

Why Bet On Vanderbilt To Beat Georgia (-21)
Vanderbilt’s defense was terrific in Week 1.
One of the biggest surprises in Week 1 was how well Vanderbilt’s defense played against one of the top offenses in college football. Supposedly, Western Kentucky with Heisman Trophy candidate QB Brandon Doughty was supposed to torch the Commodores. Doughty threw for 4,830 yards and 49 touchdowns last season. Although he looked good in the second half of the Hilltoppers 14 to 12 win over Georgia, he didn’t even get close to his usual numbers. Doughty threw for only 209 yards.
Vandy was tough against the run as well. Western Kentucky rushed for only 38 yards on 22 carries for a 1.8 yards per average. If Vandy has any success at stopping Georgia’s rushing attack, they’ll be in this game until the end.
That’s a big question mark, though. As bad as Western Kentucky looked, they had a shot at covering the spread against Vanderbilt. Plus, the Hilltoppers won the game. Vanderbilt’s defense faces a seriously uphill battle against Georgia’s offense in this matchup. Georgia rushed for 243 yards in the Bulldogs’ 44 to 17 victory over the Commodores last season. Football handicappers should expect a similar score in this game. Georgia just has too much on offense while Vanderbilt’s offense faces a fast defense on Saturday. My final score prediction is Georgia 52, Vanderbilt 10 .
