As Saturday's noon rivalry game between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets gets closer the oddsmakers are pulling the line further in Georgia's favor. The Bulldogs opened as a 5.5 point favorite, but they have already opened that up to a 6.5 favorite line according to Oddsshark, SB Nation's official odds partner:
Supporters of the Bulldogs have seen them go 9-2 and 7-4 ATS so far this season, while the Yellow Jackets are at 8-3 and 5-5-1 ATS. In totals betting, the Yellow Jackets are 7-4, while the Bulldogs are 5-6.
While it seems like bragging rights are the only thing on the line for both schools, that is more than enough in this rivalry. Georgia can still qualify for a BCS bowl game with a win in the SEC championship game, while Georgia Tech has seen its ACC championship game hopes end. Georgia is going for its 10th win of the season as well.
