Bet on Tennessee -3 Because…
Tennessee always comes through. The Volunteers might wait until the second half in order to get it going on offense and defense. But the Vols always seem to do that. They spotted Virginia Tech 14 points only to beat VA Tech 45 to 24. The Vols were down 21 to 3 at halftime versus Florida only to come back and beat the Gators 38 to 28. Tennessee may not win the way that so many people want them to, by blowing teams out in the first half, but they always win.
Bet on Georgia +3 Because…
Georgia has no choice but to bounce back from the horrible loss to Ole Miss. In Week 4, the Bulldogs went to Ole Miss as a +7 road dog. They got absolutely smashed by Ole Miss 45 to 14. Georgia has to come back strong this Saturday if they hope to have any shot at making it to the SEC Championship. The Bulldogs have some talent. But talent doesn’t always lead to a win.
ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
Georgia has some talent, that’s true, but Tennessee is one of the most talented teams in the country. The Volunteers really came together in the second half of their win over Florida in Week 4.
Tennessee ended up slashing one of the better defenses in the SEC for 498 total yards. The Vols rushed for 179 total yards. Tennessee has the offense to dominate Georgia’s defense while Georgia’s offense should have some trouble with rookie QB Jacob Eason passing against Tennessee’s defense.
