Georgia vs Kentucky Prediction & Pick
Georgia is certainly not the team anyone wants to run into when they are already failing to score the football. The Bulldogs are allowing only 1.6 red zone scores per game (T-No. 3 in FBS) and giving up 12.9 points per contest (No. 2 in FBS). It's a defense that never bends nor breaks in conference play.
When these teams met last year, Georgia earned the 30-13 victory thanks to quarterback Stetson Bennett's 3 passing touchdowns. Look for head coach Kirby Smart to switch things up, though, given the Wildcats are allowing an average of 176.7 yards on the ground across their last three games.
Final Score Prediction: Georgia: 35 | Kentucky: 10

Kentucky knows that its only chance to pull off an upset here is by running the football. The Wildcats have posted a 55.4% rushing play percentage on the season and are not afraid to play with a moving clock. Neither is Georgia considering it averages 5.5 yards per carry on the year (T-No. 9 in FBS).
That is why the value in this game lies with the point total. The under has cashed in nine of Georgia's last 12 games as well as in each of Kentucky's last six games. The total has also hit the under in five of the last seven head-to-head matchups between these rivals. Don't expect fireworks on Saturday.
Bet: Under 49.5 Points (-115)
