The Georgia Bulldogs are the class of the SEC East and they look to maintain their dominance with a win over the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday. According to coach Kirby Smart, the Dogs didn’t play very well last week, and they still won by two touchdowns, which tells us something about the state of the program. BookMaker live betting offers a number of in-game wagers and props, and based on Georgia’s offensive prowess, leaning towards the Dogs to put up a healthy point total is probably a good idea.

Tennessee’s 47-21 loss to Florida last week looked much worse than it actually was. Well, maybe not. It was pretty bad. But the Vols didn’t help themselves by turning the ball over six times leading to 24 Gators points. They also took a safety. The Vols also had a tough time stopping the run last week, a problem that has persisted most of the season. Tennessee allowed 201 rushing yards and three touchdowns to Florida and they give up nearly 135 yards per game.
Running With The Dogs
BookMaker.eu will offer several in-game betting options and taking Georgia to masterfully run the football is a smart play. The Dogs average over 250 yards per game on the ground this season, partly because they’ve built big early leads and use the ground game to run the clock and control the tempo. And also because they have a stable of backs capable of turning a short dive into a long gain.
Four players have amassed 100 or more rushing yards this season, led by Elijah Holyfield, who leads the team with 290. That’s not a lot for team that grinds out such a hefty amount, but the rotation works against worn out defenses. Look for the Bulldogs to do most of their damage on the ground in the second half. They will get the lead and turn to their backs to chew up the clock, punishing Tennessee’s defense in the process. In-game betting at BookMaker.eu will offer second half wagers and this is a wonderful opportunity to pick up some quick cash.
Ball security is huge for the Vols, who will be a big underdog on the road for this matchup. Holding onto the rock will improve their chances of at least covering the spread and they’ve proven capable of doing that by not committing a turnover in their first two games. However, over the last two contests the Vols have eight giveaways and are 0-2 against the spread.
Georgia has a potent offense led by Jake Fromm. The Dogs average 477.5 yards per game and rank 15th with 44.5 points per outing. But it isn’t just the offense that scores. The Dogs built a 20-7 lead over Missouri last weekend without the benefit of an offensive touchdown. They had a defensive score on a long fumble return and special teams chipped in with a blocked punt that was also converted into a touchdown.
The Dogs will harass Tennessee into a few turnovers, since they do that very well, and they will convert those into scores. It would be worth making a wager on a defensive or special teams score at BookMaker live betting.
Free ATS Pick
The two coaches are very familiar with each other so don’t expect any surprises there. The outcome of this game comes down to the players on the field and Georgia has a big edge in the talent department. And Athens will be rocking with the Bulldogs playing their first home conference game.
You can bet this game now at BookMaker.eu and take Georgia to win by a comfortable margin. The under in the second half is a good play with the Dogs looking to close out the game after building a large lead in the first half. Tennessee hasn’t had a lot of success scoring against FBS competition and they haven’t faced a defense as talented as Georgia’s.
