Why Georgia Bulldogs are a good bet ATS?

Since the embarrassing 67-91 loss to Georgia State, the Bulldogs have been on a roll, winning 5-of-6. Their only loss in their last 6 games was to Pac 12 leading Arizona State. Georgia lost 74-76. So, the Bulldogs had a chance to beat the Sun Devils.

Tennessee’s the much more popular team right now because the Vols battled some tough out of conference foes. However, this is the first SEC game for both teams. Georgia figures to ratchet up the intensity facing a highly ranked squad like Tennessee.

Why #3 Tennessee Volunteers are a good bet ATS?

The Volunteers lone loss this season was 81-87 in overtime to college basketball power Kansas on a neutral court. Other than losing to Kansas, Tennessee’s been great. The Vols already have quality wins over Memphis, Gonzaga, Louisville, Georgetown, and Wake Forest.

Georgia could play as well as it can and it shouldn’t come close to upsetting Tennessee on their home floor. The Vols are loaded this season. They’ll show their SEC opponent how good they really are.

Georgia vs Tennessee Final NCAAB Betting Analysis

Losing to Georgia State’s not as big of deal as many believe because it happened so early in the season. Villanova lost to Fuhrman and they bounced back with some quality wins.

Georgia could do the same. More importantly, the Bulldogs will get plenty of points in this battle on Saturday. They should have no trouble at least covering the spread against Tennessee. If the Volunteers overlook the Bulldogs, UGA could pull off the SU upset.
