NCAA football betting handicappers continue to wonder when Colorado will whack Dan Hawkins while the fall of Georgia and Mark Richt has been a big college football betting surprise.
The Colorado Golden Buffaloes will host the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday on Fox Sports Net with kickoff set for 4:35 PM Eastern Time and an opening line at Sports-Gambling of Georgia -4.
The Georgia Bulldogs have continued their fall from the elite status of college football and the Southeastern Conference. Georgia has a college football gambling record of 1-3 both straight up and against the spread and is coming off a 24-12 loss at Mississippi State as 1 point road dogs.
After opening the season with a 55-7 win and payout at home over Louisiana Lafayette the Bulldogs have lost all 3 of the SEC games and Richt is now under fire. The offense has been particularly bad as it ranks 80th in the country.
The Bulldogs have not only fallen behind SEC powers Florida, Alabama, and LSU but now are losing to the likes of South Carolina and Mississippi State. What’s worse is that Georgia is showing no signs of progress. UGA has had an even 2/2 split on over/unders this year.
The Colorado Golden Buffaloes have a NCAA football gambling record of 2-1 both straight up and against the spread with 2 out of their 3 games going under the total. Colorado is coming off a bye which followed a 31-13 win and payout over Hawaii.
But the game that is best remembered so far this year for Colorado was a 52-7 blowout loss at Cal in which they were not only out played but also out manned and out coached. Hawkins program continues to fare poorly against BCS teams and ranks 96th in the nation for scoring offense. The defense is in the middle of the national rankings.
The only previous NCAA football betting matchup between these two teams was in 2006 as Georgia squeaked by 14-13 as 27 point home favorites. Georgia has paid out in just 3 of their last 10 road games while Colorado has gotten the money in 5 out of their last 6 home games.
