Georgia Vs. Coastal Carolina Spread, Odds Update: Bulldogs Heavy Favorite But Will They Cover?

After starting the season 0-2 for the first time since 1996, a FCS opponent is a sight for sore eyes for Mark Richt's Georgia Bulldogs. Georgia opened the week as a heavy favorite and as was expected, has maintained a sizable 35 points spread for most of the week. 

Such a large spread leaves little room for error. In other words, Georgia can't afford to turn the ball over the way they did against South Carolina and expect to cover which I am sure never enters any of the coach's minds. However, it is important to bounce back from last week's disappointing loss and Georgia is likely to try and get Isaiah Crowell more involved in the offense. If last week is any indication then that is a good thing. 

According to Odds Shark, over 70 percent of the people are picking Georgia to cover. Those same people may not realize that the Bulldogs are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games and just 1-4 in those games. The only victory in that stretch came against Georgia Tech.
