College Football Odds, Week 11: Georgia Bulldogs Vs. Auburn Tigers

The undefeated Auburn Tigers opened as a 9.5 point favorite over the 5-5 Georgia Bulldogs, according to our bros at Odds Shark. With home field advantage, that line might seem a little slim, but keep in mind the uselessness of home field advantage in this series. From 1992 to 1999, neither home team pulled off a win. Since the series became a home-and-home in 1959, 17 of Auburn’s 26 wins have come in Athens. Likewise, Georgia has won two straight in Auburn.

It looks like the betting public has a better sense of what home field means in this series, as the line has slipped to 8.5. That’s also probably just as much due to uncertainty about whether Cam Newton will play or not. (Short answer: yes, he will.)

The over/under has jumped from 64 to 65.5. No explanation there, other than people see Newton on one side and A.J. Green on the other, plus defenses that have given up 43 points to the Arkansas Razorbacks and 29 to the Colorado Buffaloes.
