Tennessee at Georgia (-13.5)

Tennessee gets a second chance at redemption as they hit the road to Athens to face what has been an impressive Georgia squad.

Matt – Georgia

I took a little “business trip” to Nashville last weekend and spent a Saturday evening amongst Vol fans.  Their feelings on UT told me all I need to know, this won’t be close.  Tennessee has moved the ball well through the air, but struggles on the ground, and can’t stop anyone on defense.  Georgia on the road is not the way to cure any of those problems.  The Bulldogs get up big early, and don’t look back.

Tim – Georgia

I always lean to the home team in the SEC. Take LSU at Auburn last week, for example. It seems like the crowds down there really turn up the heat on opponents, plus I think Georgia is about two touchdowns better than the Vols. This is easy money.

Craig – Georgia

Real hard game to judge for me. I will go with the higher-ranked home team as a big favorite just because I think they have the better athletes and Tennessee struggled last week at home against bad Akron.

Corey – Georgia

Georgia has looked really awesome lately!  Tennessee is trying to rebound from its difficult loss to Florida 2 weeks ago.  They looked like they were going to struggle with Akron until they pulled away late.  Georgia, at home between the hedges is going to have too much for the Vols.  The question is, can the Dogs cover the nearly 2 TD spread?  I think they can, but barely!
