Georgia vs Ohio State prediction

Ohio State should be favored at home where it's 15-4 SU on the season, but this line is a bit steep for a Georgia team that's playing its best ball of the season. Georgia just beat Wake Forest on the road as 7 point underdogs, and the Bulldogs have covered 8 of their last 10 games overall. Georgia has covered each of its last 6 games. OSU should win with the more consistent offense and the best player on the floor, but Georgia is on a heater, both SU and ATS, lately. Too many points. Give me the Bulldogs to hang around.
