The Georgia Bulldogs storm into Knoxville for a Week 11 matchup ranked first in the College Football Playoff rankings. Will Kirby Smart’s team continue its destruction of the SEC?
Or, do the Tennessee Volunteers present a trap game? Read on to learn about the top college football betting plays for this week’s Georgia at Tennessee game.
Current Money Line Odds Favor Georgia Defense
The current money line has Georgia as huge -1200 favorites. There aren’t many experts that think Tennessee can win this game outright, and it’s not hard to see why.
From top to bottom, Georgia is the most dominant team in the NCAA. They play a rugged, bullying style of defense that’s allowing an average of 6.6 points per game.
Opponents have trouble through the air and on the ground. There’s seems to be little a team can do to gain yards and score points. Only three teams have scored double digits, and five have not reached the end zone.
They know they’re scary good, and they won’t let themselves off the hook. Last week, the defense only allowed six points. However, head coach Smart and the players both agreed that it was a sub-par performance.
The Offense Keeps the Balance
A college football team can’t dominate without scoring points. Ask Clemson. The Tigers still have an elite defense, but the offense can’t score.
Georgia doesn’t have that problem. Though the offensive unit struggled early in the season, it appears they’ve worked out all the kinks.
The offensive line gives quarterback Stetson Bennett ample time to work through his progressions and find open receivers. They average a respectable 240 yards through the air.
Georgia’s running back stable of Zamir White, Kendall Milton, and James Cook aren’t elite runners. However, they do get the job done, averaging 190.3 yards per game.
Though the offense was a concern coming into 2021, they average 38.4 points per game. This average is more than enough when most opponents can’t cross the goal line.
Can Tennessee Win?
If they do, it’ll be the biggest college football upset of the year. The Volunteers are a proud but beleaguered program.
They come into Week 11 with a respectable 5-4 record, but not anywhere near the glory days when Johnny Majors patrolled the sidelines in a sweater vest.
The Volunteers are hot off a big road victory against Kentucky. Their offense is putting up similar numbers to Georgia, but this is no contest.
Georgia has yet to face a team that can score on them. Unfortunately, Josh Heupel’s Volunteers will be no different.
A money line play for this Bulldogs vs. Volunteers game at +750 won’t do anything but keep you entertained for a quarter.
Georgia at Tennessee Is a Mismatch
Strange things happen during conference games, but it’s hard to see an upset occurring for Georgia at Tennessee. The Bulldogs are the most dominant team in the NCAA, but I guess anything is possible.
