College Football Betting Odds:
The Bulldogs pounce into this weekend’s action eagerly flashing their 6-0 flawless record. Unsurprisingly, the Bulldogs are No. 1 in the East division of the SEC. With a 6-0 record in the conference, Georgia is the only team from the East yet undefeated in conference play. No doubt LSU will be looking to put a dent in that streak this weekend, but the college football betting odds don’t think they’ll get it done. Nevertheless, the fact that Georgia is 1-2 in their last 3 matchups against LSU makes it clear that the Tigers have a shot at pulling off the upset this weekend. Especially since the Bulldogs will be playing on the road this Saturday. Furthermore, LSU has already upset to Top 10 teams this season; No. 8 Miami in Week 1 and No. 7 Auburn in Week 3, so it’s clear they thrive when the odds are stacked against them. In the end Georgia has enough weapons to get the job done handily this weekend. However, they’ll need to bring the utmost focus to avoid an upset from LSU.
Players to Watch: Jake Fromm (1,200 passing yards, 12 TD, 2 INT), Elijah Holyfield (432 rushing yards, 3 TD, 7.4 AVG), and Mecole Hardman (335 receiving yards, 4 TD, 22 REC).
The Tigers come into this weekend’s action sporting a 5-1 record that includes a 2-1 record in SEC play. Right now the West division of the conference is led by Alabama, who is obviously undefeated in conference play this season. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear LSU will be at a disadvantage this weekend. Currently Georgia is averaging 42.8 points per game and giving up a slim 13.0 defensively. For comparison, LSU is averaging 31.3 and giving up 17.0. Although the difference on defense is minimal, there is quite a large gap in their offensive production. To help chip away at that gap, LSU will be looking to win the time of possession battle this weekend. Fortunately the Bulldogs are giving up 113 rushing yards per game, so LSU should have something to work with there.
Players to Watch: Joe Burrow (1,214 passing yards, 6 TD, 2 INT), Nick Brossette (576 rushing yards, 8 TD, 4.9 AVG), and Justin Jefferson (344 receiving yards, 2 TD, 21 REC).
