Why Bet On Georgia?
There are a bunch of good reasons to back Georgia in this Week 12 SEC showdown starting with the fact that the Bulldogs are now in the national Top 4 and they want to hold on or improve on their College Football Playoff ranking in the worst way. Then, there’s the fact that the Bulldogs have some momentum built up after winning their last three games including a 27-0 shutout win over Missouri last weekend. Georgia is also the statistically better team on both sides of the ball in averaging 33.7 points per game (36th) while limiting the opposition to just 10.1 points per game to rank a stellar second in points allowed nationally. Last but not least, the Bulldogs have won two straight in this SEC rivalry by at least 17 points including their 27-10 home win last season.

Why Bet On Auburn?
There are also some good reasons to back Auburn in this Week 12 matchup. Auburn is a bit desperate after splitting their last four games. Although the Tigers managed to get past Mississippi 20-14 two weeks ago, Auburn never came close to covering the chalk as a 17-point home favorite. The Tigers also have a solid offense that averages 32.7 points per game (45th) and a solid defense that limits the opposition to just 17.4 points per game (13th). Last but not least, Auburn has been on fire when it comes to covering the chalk. The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week.

Georgia vs Auburn Expert Analysis and Prediction
While I’m certainly expecting Auburn to put up a great effort in this huge matchup, I think it’s a bit of harbinger that the Tigers have lost two of their last four games against two other elite opponents in Florida and LSU over the last month. Georgia will be locked in from the outset and I love their superior defense and edge at quarterback with Jake Fromm under center. The Bulldogs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings while the Favorite is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings. Auburn has covered the spread at a high rate, but they won’t in this contest!
