Can Georgia Put Their Issues Vs Florida Behind Them?

Although the Georgia Bulldogs enter their contest with the Florida Gators undefeated and ranked third in the nation, the team has something to prove. Georgia has lost its past three against Florida while being outscored 99-33. The Bulldogs look to end their struggles against the Gators when the two teams meet at EverBank Field on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Georgia’s last 6 games against Florida.
  • Georgia is 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games.
  • Georgia RB Nick Chubb was held to 20 yards on 9 carries vs Florida last season.

The Bulldogs are picking up wins the way you would expect with a dominant rushing attack and stout defense. Georgia is 10th in rushing yards per game thanks to the deadly duo of Nick Chubb and Sony Michel while their defense is second in the country in yards allowed and fourth in points allowed.

Florida is coming off a couple of tough losses in which the offense could not hold up its end of the bargain. The Gators defense held LSU and Texas A&M to fewer than 20 points each but the offense failed to score more than 17 in either affair. The running game of Florida has been clicking but freshman quarterback Feleipe Franks has been going through growing pains.
