Georgia is no doubt the top team in the country, led by what has been so far a historically good defense that ranks 1st in both scoring & total defense, however, this is a bunch of points to cover against a very good Kentucky team. Kentucky will no doubt struggle to put up points on the road against the Bulldogs defense, however, the Wildcats defense is also their strength and I think they could give Stetson Bennett and the Georgia offense some trouble. I think Georgia will win this game buy double-digits, however, as I think the Kentucky defense keeps this more competitive than expected, I think the play here is to take the Wildcats and the points. Good Luck!
