Georgia has won four games in a row, including a 34-0 blowout victory over the Missouri Tigers as three-point road favorites last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in six contests during the 2014 campaign. The Bulldogs ran 87 offensive plays last week, which is important to consider when making your Week 8 college football predictions, with 58 coming on the ground to establish the most ever during the Mark Richt era. Georgia is 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS as favorites of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 4-3 in that situation.
The Bulldogs are second in the Southeastern Conference in averaging 275.7 rushing yards per game, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines, as they sit behind their opponent in this Saturday afternoon matchup. Georgia leads the SEC and sits behind just four teams nationally with a plus-nine turnover margin, while it has turned 13 turnovers into 34 points this season. It’s important to point out that former Heisman Trophy frontrunner Todd Gurley will be sitting out his second consecutive game due to a suspension.
Arkansas has covered the number in its last five contests, but it looks to snap a two-game losing streak, which includes a 14-13 defeat to the Alabama Crimson Tide as nine-point home underdogs in Week 7. The Razorbacks are still trying to snap a 15-game conference losing streak, but they’ve dropped nine of 13 all-time meetings in this particular series. The school will be playing in the state’s capitol for the 83rd consecutive season—posting a 167-68-4 mark when playing in Little Rock. Arkansas is 1-5 SU and 3-3 ATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons.
The Razorbacks are the only team in the nation with two running backs that have gained 500-plus rushing yards this season, with Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams entering with 634 and 569 yards on the ground respectively. Arkansas has failed to get over the hump in Bret Bielema’s second year due to playing the nation’s toughest schedule base on last year’s results.
Sports bettors will likely back the Razorbacks due to the underdog going 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in this rivalry.
