Georgia vs. Auburn

The Georgia vs. Auburn spread had been sitting at Tigers -7.5 heading into Saturday morning, however, Diamond Sports International did offer Auburn at -6.5.  The spread action was even on this game.  The 62.5 total was getting around 75 percent on the OVER.  Around 60 percent liked the Georgia money line, which pays $23 for every $10 bet. 

Auburn is currently ranked number 2 in the nation after Oregon.  Both those teams are undefeated thus far this season. 

Exercise caution here.  The Scout’s Edge believes this will be a close one and predicts a 4-point Auburn win.

Georgia comes in having won four of its last five games and will provide a tough test for Auburn. Murray will continue to improve and dial up a few big plays to keep the Bulldogs close, but Newton is the X-factor and his dual-threat capabilities will provide just enough points for the Tigers to remain undefeated in a relatively high-scoring affair.

Georgia has beaten Auburn in their last four head-to-head matchups. 


Auburn also comes into this game with plenty of off-the-field drama. Quarterback Cam Newton’s father, Cecil Newton, was accused Thursday by Kenny Rogers, a former Mississippi State player who has worked for a Chicago-based agent, of asking for anywhere from $100,000 to $180,000 for his son to sign a scholarship with Mississippi State. According to an NCAA spokeswoman, "the solicitation of cash or benefits by a prospective student-athlete or another individual on his or her behalf is not allowed under NCAA rules."


It is questionable as to whether Newton will play on Saturday. 

Here are a handful of trends for bettors to ponder coming into this game:

The Bulldogs are 7-15-1 Against The Spread in their last 23 conference games.  The Tigers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games.

The Bulldogs are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS win.

The trends for this game are rather limited.
