The Gardner Webb Runnin Bulldogs and Georgia Bulldogs face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at the Stegeman Coliseum. When these two teams last faced off in November of 2016 it was Georgia that won 77-59. 

Gardner-Webb comes into this game with a 5-7 record overall and they have gone 4-5 against the spread. In the last game against Converse the defense was strong giving up only 46 points, and that was enough to come away with the comfortable victory. The Bulldogs are averaging 72.7 points while their defense is giving up 66.4 points per game. D’Maurian Williams has been the top player for Gardner-Webb averaging 14.6 points while shooting 41.5 percent from the field and 36.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Georgia Bulldogs who sit with a 5-7 record and they have gone 3-8-1 against the spread. In the last game against East Tennessee State the offense scored 84 points, but the defense was awful giving up 86 points and that led to the defeat. Georgia is averaging 70.8 points while their defense is giving up 72.8 points per game. Georgia is only attempting 55.3 field goal attempts per game which is 306th in all of college basketball. Braelen Bridges has been the top player for the Bulldogs averaging 12.5 points while shooting 67.5 percent from the field.

The Runnin' Bulldogs are 6-0 against the spread in their last 6 games after allowing less than 50 points in their previous game. The over is 4-1 in Georgia’s last five games overall. The over is 4-1 in Georgia’s last five home games. The under is 7-1-1 in Gardner-Webb’s last nine road games. 

I don’t trust this Georgia team, and even though Gardner Webb hasn’t had a great season. They have actually been the better defensive team. Look for Georgia to have issues scoring in this game and that will allow the Runnin Bulldogs to keep it close. Back Gardner Webb against the spread. In terms of the total I do believe this will be a slower-paced game and the under is going to cash.
