Georgia handles their business at home against Tennessee.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Tennessee +31.5
Georgia has a boring two-game home-stand against an unappealing Tennessee and Vanderbilt squad, so it is hard to see Georgia playing four quarters in this one.
Tennessee should be feeling sick after coughing up the ball six times, so expect ball security to be a top-priority for them.
Against Missouri, Georgia was in up-tempo shootout mode, I don’t expect that style in this contest as Georgia can easily just run the football and control the clock and secure a safe win.
In that process Tennessee should score some points here-and-there and keep it within the number.
