Georgia is a Hot UNDER Bet

Georgia will be without coach Mark Richt after he left for a job in Miami, but that shouldn’t slow down the defense of the Bulldogs. Georgia has allowed just 16.9 points per game this season, which has led them to six consecutive UNDERs entering the TaxSlayer Bowl against Penn State.

Shark Bites
  • Georgia is 8-3 SU in their last 11 games in January.
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of Penn State’s past 10 games against the SEC.
  • Receiver Chris Godwin is coming off a 109 yard and two touchdown performance.

The Bulldogs closed their season with four consecutive wins while keeping opponents to an average of 10 points per game. Georgia is not a pass-heavy team, but quarterback Greyson Lambert has tightened up his game and has not thrown an interception since October 17.

Penn State has arguably the best pass rusher in the country in Carl Nassib who leads the nation in sacks and the Big Ten in tackles for loss. Christian Hackernberg looked like he could be a top flight quarterback before this season, but the junior has shown a tendency to hold the ball a little too long this season.
