Georgia Vs. Auburn Odds Update: Bulldogs 12 Point Favorites At Home

The Bulldogs will enter Saturday's game against rival Auburn enjoying the heaviest favored spread (-12) in the last decade of this rivalry. So far in their 7-2 season, Georgia has performed well against the spread (6-3), but the history of the South's oldest rivalry has been dead even in the last decade. UGA holds a 4-6 advantage, but both teams are 5-5 against the spread, averaging close to the same number of points scored (26.4 for the Bulldogs, 22.8 for the Tigers) and total yards (367 for UGA, 338 for AU). 

Of all the projected matchups, the most lopsided in favor of the Bulldogs is Auburn's shaky passing on the road versus Georgia's ever-improving home defense. In the post Cam Newton era, Tigers are managing only 143 yards passing away from home this season, while the Bulldogs' secondary has been stout in Athens, allowing 177 total yards passing at home (25th nationally). 

If you're looking to bet the over/under, Georgia has been tricky: The Dawgs have hit the under in four of their last six games, but have also hit the over in four of their last five at home (likely skewed by New Mexico State and a shootout against South Carolina).
