Though their clashes have been few and far between, the OVER has hit in each of the past five meetings between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs. The two teams will renew their acquaintances when they meet in Athens Saturday.
In their past five meetings, dating back to October 5, 2005, the Tide and the Bulldogs have averaged a combined 58.4 points per game. If the current line of Alabama +2.5 holds until kickoff, it will be the first time the Crimson Tide has been an underdog in 72 games.
The matchup will feature two of the best running backs in the country in Alabama’s Derrick Henry and Georgia’s Nick Chubb.
Henry has averaged 6.3 yards per rush this season with eight touchdowns, but did not look like himself last week as he battled tonsillitis. Chubb has been averaging a staggering 8.4 yards per carry with six touchdowns on the season.
