In what is usually referred to as "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party," this Saturday's battle between the No. 9 Florida Gators and No. 7 Georgia Bulldogs is one of the most important games of the college football season. The winner of this game will have a leg-up in the race for SEC East crown. 


Making this game even more vital is the fact that both teams have faltered once this season and a loss would essentially give them no shot to make the College Football Playoff. 


Spread: Georgia (-6.5, -110)

UGA took last year's meeting in convincing fashion, defeating the Gators by the score of 42-7. And if you look at the history of this game, the average margin of victory is 13.6 over the last 10 games. Look for the Dawgs to control the clock in this game and cover the spread. 


Moneyline: Georgia (-270)

If the Dawgs are going to cover the spread, of course, they'll win the ball game. UGA has only won one of the last four meetings, but this is a much different team under head coach Kirby Smart, and they'll certainly be looking for revenge after getting smacked around by LSU in Death Valley two weeks ago. 


Total: 52 (Under: -110)

This Florida/Georgia rivalry has averaged 45 points per game over the last 10 meetings, 42.8 points per game over the last five games, and 41.5 over the last two meetings. History points to the under as the play here.
