The Southeastern Conference (SEC) began play last weekend, and there is a huge showdown on the schedule this weekend. The Georgia Bulldogs will host the Auburn Tigers in a battle of top 10 teams, so let’s look at our Auburn at Georgia betting preview.
Auburn faced a tough Kentucky team in Week 1, and the Tigers were able to come away with a 29-13 victory. The Tigers have now moved up to No. 7 in the AP rankings.
Georgia faced a struggling Arkansas Razorbacks team in the season opener, and the Bulldogs were impressive. Georgia is the No. 4-ranked team in the country after a convincing 37-10 victory.
Auburn Betting Preview: Nix Still Inconsistent For Tigers
Quarterback Bo Nix threw for 233 yards and three touchdowns in the win over Kentucky, but he continues to struggle with accuracy. Nix completed just 58 percent of his passes in Week 1, and the Tigers need more consistency.
The Tigers were dominant on defense against Kentucky, and they will need the same type of performance in this game. Auburn had two sacks and had three takeaways in that game, and that unit could help decide this game.
Georgia Betting Preview: Bulldogs Need to Run
Georgia had 121 rushing yards in the season-opening win, and the Bulldogs want to run the football. Running back Zamir White had 13 carries for 71 yards and will be trying to break through a tough defensive line.
Linebacker Nolan Smith had 1.5 sacks in Week 1, but the Bulldogs will need more production from the rest of the defense. Georgia dominated a bad Arkansas team, but facing Auburn will be a much tougher test.
Auburn at Georgia Betting Lines
A battle of top 10 teams will almost always have a small spread, and that is exactly the case in this game. Georgia is the slight favorite since it is playing at home, but it’s extremely tight.
The Georgia Bulldogs are 6.5-point favorites over the Auburn Tigers.
Free Auburn at Georgia Betting Pick
This game will likely be a low-scoring affair as neither team was very explosive on offense in the season opener. Auburn does have the more experienced quarterback, but Georgia simply has more talent.
The Bulldogs will find a way to run the football in this game, and that will allow them to pull away for the massive victory.
