Georgia opens as a 5.5 point favorite over Georgia Tech in their annual rivalry game.

The Georgia Bulldogs open as an early 5.5 point favorite on the road over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. There isn't a lot riding on the outcome of the game for either team other than bowl positioning. The Bulldogs have clinched a spot in the SEC Championship game at the Georgia Dome while the Yellow Jackets have been eliminated from ACC title contention.

Georgia enters the game riding a nine game winning streak after dropping the first two games of the season. The Bulldogs are 7-4 against the spread this season. Georgia Tech comes in at 8-3 and is 5-5-1 against the spread.

This rivalry hasn't been much of a rivalry with the Bulldogs taking nine of the last ten meetings. Georgia Tech is 0-5 against the spread in the last five home meetings against Georgia. The Yellow Jackets are just 3-7 against the spread in their last ten games with the Bulldogs.

Georgia had covered three games in a row before squeaking out a 19-10 win over Kentucky last Saturday. Georgia Tech is just 1-4 in its last five games against the spread and didn't cover as a 10 point favorite against Duke last time out.
