Georgia is coming off one of its biggest wins in recent history, as it picked up a 44-41 victory over the LSU Tigers as three-point home favorites last Saturday, while winning the statistical battle for the fourth time to open up the 2013 campaign. The Bulldogs have averaged 41.2 points per game against a tough early schedule, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting lines in Week 6. Offensively, the team continues to rely heavily on senior quarterback Aaron Murray, especially now that running back Todd Gurley is listed as questionable with a ankle injury. Georgia is 6-1 SU and 4-3 ATS in October the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 6-1 in that situation.
The Bulldogs have won three straight over the Volunteers, including a 51-44 shootout as 13.5-point home favorites last season—winning the stat battle by a 560-478 margin. Gurley and Keith Marshall combined to rush for 294 yards and five touchdowns in that affair. The team currently ranks sixth nationally in averaging 554.0 yards per game, as it tries to break a school record 529 points that it put up on the scoreboard a season ago.
Tennessee owns a 21-19-2 all-time edge in the 43-game series, as it comes off a 31-24 victory over South Alabama as 16-point home favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in four contests. Six of the last eight meetings have been decided by 12 or more points, which can’t be ignored when making your college football betting picks Saturday afternoon. Defensively, the team ranks tied for first in the country with 11 interceptions and third in forcing 15 total turnovers. Tennessee is 1-10 SU and 2-9 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record the last two-plus seasons.
The Volunteers are trying to pick up their first win over a ranked team since Oct. 31, 2009, and their first over a top 10 team since Oct. 7, 2006. Tennessee needs to get more production out of quarterback Justin Worley, who is completing just 56 percent of his passes. He’s protected by an offensive line that has a combined total of 143 starts.
Sports bettors will likely back the Volunteers due to the Bulldogs being 1-4 ATS after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game.
