A pair of SEC teams in control of their own destiny meet up on Saturday afternoon when No. 2 Georgia goes to Tiger Stadium to take on No. 13 LSU at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Georgia has faced little resistance in its march through the conference thus far, while LSU got off to a 5-0 start before a road setback at Florida last week. The Bulldogs opened as 8.5-point favorites, but are now laying seven points in the latest Georgia vs. LSU odds. The Over-Under for total points Vegas expects opened at 50 and is now set at 49.5. With so much on the line in this battle of SEC heavyweights, be sure to check out what SportsLine’s advanced computer has to say before locking in any Georgia vs. LSU picks of your own.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors on its top-rated point-spread picks.
The model made some huge calls in Week 6, including recommending Texas (+226) on the money line in its massive upset of No. 7 Oklahoma. It finished the week on an 8-2 run on all of its college football picks, and when it comes to top-rated picks, it is now an impressive 64-52 on the year. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, the model has simulated Georgia vs. LSU 10,000 times to produce strong against-the-spread, money-line and over-under picks. We can tell you it’s leaning under, and it also has an extremely strong pick against the spread, saying one side hits almost 55 percent of the time. You can only see that one at SportsLine.
The model has taken Georgia’s incredible balance this season into account. It’s tough to find a flaw on Georgia’s roster at this point as the Bulldogs have put up impressive numbers on both sides of the ball.
They lead the SEC in total defense (283 ypg) and come into Week 7 of the college football season ranked second in the conference in scoring defense (13 ppg). With sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm and his 73 percent accuracy leading the way, the Bulldogs are also top five in the SEC in both total and scoring offense.
But that doesn’t guarantee that the Bulldogs will cover the spread against a tough SEC crossover opponent in LSU.
The Tigers were in the top five as recently as last week before a road setback against the Gators. Back in the confines of Tiger Stadium this week, LSU still has a chance to control its own destiny in the SEC standings if they can pull an upset against the Bulldogs.
And like Georgia, LSU prides itself on physicality. Running backs Nick Brossette and Clyde Edwards-Helaire have combined for 13 touchdowns. Transfer quarterback Joe Burrow (53.9 completion percentage) hasn’t been as accurate as Fromm, but with just two interceptions, he has limited mistakes and given LSU a chance in every game.
So which side of the Georgia vs. LSU spread cashes in nearly 55 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of Georgia vs. LSU you need to be all over, all from the model that has returned over $4,000 in profit for $100 bettors.
