Georgia vs. Kentucky odds: Bulldogs favored by 27 points

Facing the cellar-dwelling Kentucky Wildcats, the Georgia Bulldogs are favored by 27 points this week, according to various oddsmakers on OddsShark.com. The Bulldogs opened as 27-point favorites over the Wildcats and are now favored by anywhere from 27-to-28 points.

Georgia, coming off its bye week, is looking to rebound from a 35-7 loss to South Carolina. The Bulldogs had won their first five games of the season before facing the Gamecocks. Led by quarterback Aaron Murray -- who has thrown for 1,487 yards and 12 touchdowns -- and running back Todd Gurley, who has rushed for 575 yards and nine touchdowns, the Bulldogs boast one of the nation's best offenses. Georgia's average of 41.3 points scored per game is the third best mark in the NCAA.

Kentucky, meanwhile, has struggled this season and is riding a five-game losing streak. The Wildcats only win this season came against MAC opponent Kent State. Kentucky is averaging just 18.6 points while allowing opponents to score 32.9 points per game.
