College football gambling excitement will be high for a key SEC East matchup of Florida and Georgia with the college football odds on Saturday.
The Florida Gators will meet the Georgia Bulldogs in the famed “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” at Jacksonville, FL. Sports-Gambling opened with Georgia as a 3 point favorite. Kickoff is set for 3:30 PM Eastern with a CBS telecast.
The Florida Gators have a college football bet record of 4-3 straight up and 3-4 against the spread but can still control their own destiny in the East Division but only with a win over Georgia. The Gators have lost 3 games in a row and are coming off a bye week that followed a 10-7 home loss to Mississippi State.
The offense is yet to adjust to life without Tim Tebow and John Brantley could lose his job as he has not been a good fit for coach Urban Meyer’s offense as a pure pocket passer. Meyer has always done best with mobile quarterbacks that can spread the field and run. Florida’s offense ranks a poor 89th in the country while the defense ranks 14th.
After an alarming 1-4 start to the season that hit rock bottom with a loss at Colorado the Georgia Bulldogs have rebounded to stand with a college football betting record of 4-4 both straight up and against the spread.
Defense has been the key for UGA as they have climbed to 19th overall in the country and Mark Richt has gone from one of the hottest seats in the land to now having a shot at the SEC title game. Aaron Murray has improved at quarterback and has 1766 yards passing and the Bulldogs are coming off a 44-31 win at Kentucky last week.
Florida has a college football gambling record of 8-3-1 against the spread when coming off a straight up loss. The Gators have paid out in just 2 of their last 8 SEC games. Georgia is just 3-7 against the spread versus teams with a winning record but has paid out in 6 of their last 8 neutral site games.
Florida has paid out in the last 2 meetings in this series, which has gone over the total 3 consecutive times.
