Georgia will be looking for its seventh straight win of the season Saturday when it takes on the New Mexico State Aggies at Sanford Stadium. Early lines for the game have the Bulldogs pegged as a big favorite with the spread opening at 34 points according to oddshark.com.

The Bulldogs are 5-3 against the spread but just 2-4 in their last six home games. New Mexico State has a 3-5 overall record but is 6-2 against the spread this weekend.

The over/under for the game opens at 57 points. Something will have to give on Saturday as the Aggies have gone over in their last five games but Georgia has been under the number in four of its last five. Interestingly 56 percent of those placing bets are taking the Aggies plus the 34 points. 78 percent are wagering that the game will go over the 57 points. That would seem to be contradicting as of late Georgia's defense has been much more consistent than the offense.
