Georgia had its five-game winning streak snapped last time out, as it suffered a 38-20 defeat to the Florida Gators as 11.5-point home favorites last Saturday, but it did win the statistical battle by 15 yards. The Bulldogs are second in the country with a plus-13 turnover margin, which can’t be ignored when looking over the Week 11 college football betting odds, as their top mark in that statistical category under longtime head coach Mark Richt was plus-11 in three other seasons. Georgia is 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS as favorites of 3.5 to 10 points since 2012.
The Bulldogs own a 53-12-2 all-time edge over the Wildcats, which is important to consider when making your college football betting picks, as they’ve captured 15 of the last 17 meetings. Georgia leads the Southeastern Conference in averaging 40.5 points per game, which is slightly above the school record of 37.8 that was established by the 2012 squad. The offensive line will need to protect quarterback Hutson Mason, as Saturday’s foe is fourth in the conference in sacking opposing signal-callers 23 times this year.
Kentucky has dropped three games in a row, including a 20-10 defeat to the Missouri Tigers as seven-point road underdogs last week, while it has been out-gained in all of those affairs. The Wildcats should be proud of their effort in Columbia, as the 20 total points allowed were the fewest given up by the program in an SEC road games since 2011. It’s important to point out that the stop unit has limited foes to 20 or fewer points five times this season. Kentucky is 1-4 SUATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus campaigns.
The Wildcats have scored 263 points this season, which is already more than any of the previous three campaigns. Kentucky ranks 17th in the country in turnover margin, and much of that success in that category can be attributed to the defense tallying 13 interceptions after coming up with just three all of last year.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the OVER is 18-5 in the Bulldogs’ last 23 games overall.
