Georgia vs Florida Week 9 Preview

The SEC East leading Florida Gators host their long-time rival, the Georgia Bulldogs at EverBank Field this Saturday. Georgia is a game behind Florida in the standings and will look to give the Gators their first home loss of the season.

Shark Bites
  • Georgia is 14-6 SU in their last 20 games in October.
  • Florida is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games.
  • A win over Georgia will virtually lock up the SEC East for Florida.

Florida leaves a lot to be desired offensively; ranking 86th in yards per game, but the defense is filled with phenomenal talent and is ranked in the top 20 in most significant defensive categories. If the Gators can get a win in this one they get an easy looking schedule of Vanderbilt, South Carolina, and Florida Atlantic in their next three.

Many Georgia fans surely threw their hands up when they saw star running back Nick Chubb go down and so far their frustrations are justified. The Bulldogs are coming off of a boring 9-6 win over Mizzou, a game that saw their backs average 2.7 yards per run and quarterback Grayson Lambert average 5.6 yards per pass.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The home Florida Gators were -2.5-point favorites at open and have moved slightly to -2. The total as of Friday was set at 46.
