The Georgia Bulldogs open as surprising 13 point favorite over the visiting Auburn Tigers in a game that will likely define the Bulldogs season. With that high of a spread it is not very surprising that 70 percent of picks are going Auburn's way according to Oddshark.com.
The Bulldogs are 6-3 against the spread this season and 4-1 in their last five games. Georgia is 4-1 against Auburn in the last five meetings between the two schools. Auburn enters Saturday's game with a 6-3 record but is just 4-5 against the spread in 2011. Furthermore Auburn has covered just six times in its last 18 road games. Still 13 points is a lot for a game with so much at stake.
The over/under for the game opens at 52.5. Georgia has gone over the number in four of its last five games while Auburn has gone under in four of its last six. However, if history is any indication, these two times score a lot of points when they get together as the total has gone over in four of the last six meetings between Georgia and Auburn.
