Free Spread Prediction: Georgia Bulldogs +1.5

Coming into this game, we see this as a classic opportunity to cash in on a contrarian play, as the public is likely to jump on Mississippi State as the -1.5 point favorites. However, our analysis shows that the line for this game is set too high, and the Georgia Bulldogs are an excellent bet as the home underdogs. While others might get scared off by the Bulldogs’ recent record vs the spread at home (5-5), we are focused on the line and see it being set too high. In this scenario, we like Georgia to cover at +1.5.
