Georgia Vs. Buffalo Odds: Bulldogs Begin Game Week As 37.5 Point Favorites

Georgia will begin the 2012 season a healthy favorite over visiting Buffalo, starting the week as a 37.5 point favorite according to Odds Shark. That margin is in stark contrast to the Bulldogs' previous season opener, in which they entered the 2011 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff as three point underdogs to Boise State.

The Bulldogs are coming off of two consecutive losses - to LSU in the SEC Championship and Michigan State in the Outback Bowl - but the Bulls enter Saturday coming off of a 3-9 campaign in the MAC and losers of five of their last six in the 2011 season. Buffalo was 6-6 against the spread last season, while Georgia was 8-6, and 4-2 at home in Athens. The Bulls are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games, and 0-5 overall.

The last time Georgia was favored by 30 or more points they failed to cover, against Kentucky on November 19 of last season.
