Auburn Georgia Betting: Georgia Tries To Wrap Up SEC East Against Auburn

The Georgia Bulldogs appeared to be in so much trouble after the first two weeks of the regular season. Now, they’re just one win away from wrapping up a coveted division title.

Sports betting line: Georgia -13

Why Auburn Will Win

The college football betting  experts who look at the Southeastern Conference are wondering why and how Georgia can be favored by 13 points in this game. Win or lose, the old rivalry between Georgia and Auburn, the oldest rivalry south of the Mason-Dixon Line, dating back to 1892, has been a fiercely-contested rivalry. Games are usually volatile and wacky, with very little predictability or flow. Moreover, over the past decade of this rivalry, the visiting team has won more games than the home team in this series, giving Auburn an extra reason to believe that it can pull out a victory in this contest.

Ultimately, Auburn has a chance in this game because Georgia is simply very erratic. The Bulldogs might be on a seven-game winning streak, but they’ve played a lot of mediocre and bad teams, teams like Ole Miss and New Mexico State and Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Auburn has issues at quarterback – three different players (Barrett Trotter, Kiehl Frazier, and Clint Moseley) have seen appreciable time at the position this year, and head coach Gene Chizik has had a hard time settling on one guy. However, Auburn’s defense has gotten tougher as this season has progressed, and the Tigers – from the SEC West – are part of the SEC’s superior division. It’s worth noting that Auburn, as an 11-point underdog, went into South Carolina and defeated the SEC East’s Gamecocks earlier this season. That win by Auburn is the very reason Georgia is in position to claim the SEC East title with a win here in Athens. Auburn could very well turn the tables on Georgia in this game. Historians of SEC football would hardly be shocked if the Tigers pulled off a betting-line upset that really wouldn’t be much of an upset at all. Georgia is substantially overvalued heading into this contest.

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you have to come back to the fact that Auburn just doesn’t have a consistent quarterback. The Tigers, playing on the road, need a step-up performance from their field general, but precisely because they’ve had a revolving door at the position this year, they can’t expect a dynamic offensive showing. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray has been erratic this season – he completed under 50 percent of his passes in the second half of an Oct. 29 win over Florida – but Georgia’s defense, under coordinator Todd Grantham, has been resilient and rugged this season. It’s Georgia’s defense which can hold Auburn down and allow Georgia to win this game with a score of 20-13 or thereabouts.

Who Will Win

It’s not as though Georgia will win this game going away. The Bulldogs are too flawed to register a blowout. However, they will win the game and take home the SEC East. Georgia wins, but Auburn covers.
