The Georgia Bulldogs and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets square off this Saturday in a huge rivalry game at the Georgia Dome, and the No. 3 Bulldogs enter the game as heavy favorites. After opening as 14-point favorites according to OddsShark, that number has moved to 14.5 points in favor of Georgia. The total is currently set at 63.5 points.

Georgia is still alive in the national title race, as wins over Georgia Tech and then Alabama in the SEC Championship Game would punch the Bulldogs' ticket to Miami. Since losing to South Carolina back on Oct. 6, Georgia has won five in a row, with the last three coming by a combined 96 points.

Georgia will get a challenge from Georgia Tech, as the Yellow Jackets' explosive triple-option attack is putting up 38.5 points per game. However, Georgia Tech's defense has struggled this season, and the Yellow Jackets have lost 10 of 11 to the Bulldogs.

Despite being 10-1 on the year, Georgia is just 5-6 against the spread. Georgia Tech is 6-5 overall, but 7-4 against the spread.
