Bulldogs Renew Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate Rivalry with Georgia Tech

davis_bulldogs

The Georgia Bulldogs try to keep their faded College Football Playoff hopes alive when they renew their annual “Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate” rivalry with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday in a Week 13 matchup at Bobby Dodd Stadium. The 10-1 Bulldogs are coming off an important 42-13 win over Kentucky as 22.5-point home favorites, while the Yellow Jackets’ bowl game hopes took a hit with a 43-20 loss at Duke as 7-point chalk.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of Georgia’s last six games on the road against Georgia Tech.
  • Georgia Tech is 11-2-1 ATS in its last 14 games.
  • Georgia is 8-1 SU in its last nine games on the road after losing its most recent road game.

The Bulldogs bounced back from their 40-17 loss at Auburn as 2.5-point road favorites with last week’s win. Georgia has covered in just two of its past five contests, but has scored 41 or more points on the road on three occasions this season, while twice holding opponents to single-digit totals. The OVER has been a consistent bet when the Bulldogs play, prevailing in five of their past six.

The Yellow Jackets own a middling 5-5 SU record but are unbeaten SU in four straight home dates, including a 28-22 upset of Virginia Tech as 3-point underdogs two weeks ago. However, Georgia Tech has covered just once in its past four, ending a 10-game ATS win streak, and is winless in five SU as double-digit home underdogs, covering just once during that stretch.

Georgia Tech shocked the Bulldogs with a 28-27 upset win as 4.5-point road underdogs a year ago, and has taken two of three SU from their longtime rivals. However, Georgia has largely owned the Yellow Jackets during their century-old rivalry, winning and covering in eight straight road dates, and is 21-5 SU in their past 26 overall.
