Georgia is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. The over is 4-1 in Georgia’s last 5 games. Kentucky is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The under is 4-1 in Kentucky’s last 5 games following an ATS loss.

Georgia has been very bad this season and now gets to go on the road to play a Kentucky team that is looking to blow off some steam after letting their last game get away from them. Kentucky is the better team all the way around and I expect a blowout win.
