LSU vs Georgia Prediction & Pick
Georgia lost 15 players to the NFL Draft following last season's championship season. But the Bulldogs defense has remained dominant allowing just 136 points this season - or 11.3 points per game.
Georgia's offense is still strong with QB Stetson Bennett leading a 488 YPG offense with efficient balance (203 rush, 285 pass). The Bulldogs will run over and through a Tigers defense that is wearing out and was gashed for 274 rushing yards on 50 carries by A&M last week.
LSU's offense has improved to 433 YPG (191 rush, 241 pass), but they've had three clunkers against Tennessee, Arkansas and Auburn. Tigers duel-threat QB Jaydon Daniels has taken care of the football well (2 INTs, 3 lost fumbles), but now faces his stiffest challenge against the Dawgs dominant defense.
Daniels also injured his ankle in last week's 38-23 loss at Texas A&M, and he was in a walking boot Monday. Monitor his practice schedule, but the betting line is up a point and coach Brian Kelly and the Tigers are in too tough regardless.
Final Score Prediction: Georgia: 38 | LSU: 13

LSU vs Georgia Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Bulldogs came up short and lost to Alabama in last year's SEC title game on their way to winning the College Football Playoff and NCAA Championship Game. Georgia won't hold anything back against a more flawed LSU opponent and one of the weaker SEC championship entrants in the past decade.
Bet: Georgia -18.5 (-105)
