Head-to-Head: Georgia vs Auburn
It’s been a ho-hum start to the college football season for the Georgia Bulldogs, who haven’t lost a game since the end of the 2021 regular season. They’re 4-0 and have beaten each of their opponents by more than a single score, but they haven’t exactly kept up with the oddsmakers’ expectations of them. Last week’s 49-21 victory over UAB was the first time this season that a Georgia game hit the over, and their 45-3 win over Ball State in Week 2 is the only time so far that they’ve covered the spread.
Auburn is looking at similar numbers through four weeks. The Tigers covered the spread and hit the over in Week 1, where they earned a 59-14 victory over UMass. They’ve done neither since in games against Cal, Sam Houston, and Texas A&M – who handed them a 10-27 loss in College Station last week. None of Auburn’s offensive rankings reflect anything better than an average team that figures to be overmatched against Georgia’s vaunted defense.
The Bulldogs have owned the rivalry in recent memory, winning 9 of the last 10 matchups between these teams since 2014. The lone Auburn victory – 40-17 in 2017 – was avenged by a 28-7 Georgia victory when the teams met in that year’s SEC Championship game. Georgia covered the spread in each of their nine victories, but the teams only hit the over in 2 of the 10 meetings.

Georgia vs Auburn Predictions
This game will draw eyes because it’s among the longest-running rivalries in college football, between two teams with dedicated fanbases. That said, the expectations for the game are reflected in the lines – Georgia will likely win in decisive fashion, and Auburn keeping the game close would be widely regarded as an accomplishment. The Bulldogs are too talented and too well-coached to lose in Auburn unless something extraordinary happens. They’ll probably lose at some point, but Auburn isn’t the best team to bet on making that happen.
Prediction: Georgia -14.5
