Georgia Bulldogs Vs Kentucky Wildcats: Spread And Over/Under Picks

Spread: SBGGLOBAL.com, Sportsbook.com, and OddsMaker.com say Dawgs -3.5, while 5Dimes.com has Georgia as 4-point favorites.

Over/under: 5Dimes.com lists the over/under at 58.5.

Pick: Having been burned by the Bulldogs twice already this season thanks to the Due-For-A-Win Fallacy ("They can't possibly lose again!"), I'm hesitant to take Georgia. Does the letdown-game wave continue, with South Carolina's big win over Bama giving the Wildcats the edge, followed by the 'Cats losing focus against Georgia*? Or have the Dawgs finally turned the corner, locked in on 

One factor: the Kentucky crowd could either choose to be petty or defiant after Randall Cobb's Twitter outburst against Wildcat fans. If they decide to prove Cobb wrong and treat Commonwealth Stadium like it's Rupp Arena, this is suddenly a big-boy SEC road game.

Considering Georgia's defense has played only one bad game (Colorado), and there's no reason to think they'll collapse this week, my play here is the under. An involved home crowd could dim the Dawgs resurgent offense -- they've scored 45 points total in three road games, but 55, 43, and 41 in three home games.

* Sure, it's weird to say it that way since Georgia is the better team, but this is the SEC East, ma'am. Nothing has made sense since Louisiana-Lafayette left town.
