Vanderbilt is 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. The under is 6-2 in Vanderbilt’s last 8 road games. Georgia is 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The over is 6-1 in Georgia’s last 7 games. The home team is 7-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
Georgia is not a good team this season and has consistently lost games by double digits this year. Vanderbilt started the season very strong, but has lost their last two games. I am taking Vanderbilt in this game because I cannot trust Georgia.
