Georgia Bulldogs at Tennessee Volunteers Odds and Game Pick (2021)

by November 10, 2021

The Georgia Bulldogs have been dominant this season. They opened the year with a 10-3 victory over Clemson, and they’ve won every game by 17 or more points since then. Will that continue to be the case against Tennessee? How will the Bulldogs respond to playing in a demanding road environment? Will it even matter? 

The Tennessee Volunteers are hoping that their home field advantage will provide a substantial edge in this contest. However, there’s a good chance that Georgia’s elite defense will silence the crowd and dictate this game. The Volunteers lost two straight games against ranked teams, but they bounced back nicely with a 45-42 win over Kentucky last Saturday. They’ll try to ride that momentum in a matchup with the top team in the country. 

We’ll break down all the betting angles of this Saturday afternoon matchup.

Details

  • Opening Line: Georgia -20
  • Over/Under: 56
  • Location: Neyland Stadium
  • Kickoff: 3:30 ET

Overview 

The Bulldogs are 9-0 on the season with a 6-3 record against the spread. Georgia averages more than 38 points per contest while leading the nation with only 6.6 points allowed per game. Can they maintain those numbers against Tennessee this weekend? It seems likely, as the Bulldog’s defense always puts them in a position to execute their game plan and limit mistakes. 

Georgia seems bulletproof at this point in the season, and they rarely have an off day. If Tennessee wants to keep things close, they’ll have to play mistake-free football while baiting the Bulldogs into turnovers of their own. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem likely. The Volunteers ran out of steam in a 52-24 loss to Alabama, which can be considered the closest opponent resembling Georgia.

Trends 

  • Georgia has won 13 games in a row straight up. 
  • The under is 5-1 in Georgia’s last six games. 
  • The over is 4-1 in Tennessee’s last five games. 

Bottom Line 

It’s not an exciting pick, but the steady Bulldogs seem to be the best side here. Sure, we are worried about a meaningless backdoor touchdown, but Georgia isn’t exactly prone to giving those up. As a result, the Bulldogs should continue to roll in this conference clash. 

Pick: Georgia -20.5
