- Away Team (Texas) Total: Under 23 Points (-110) – Texas scored fewer than 23 points in just one game across 13 matchups this season, but the Longhorns haven't faced a defense like the Bulldogs either. UGA boasts the No. 18 scoring defense in the country (20.1 PPG), and the next-best defensive opponent the Longhorns have faced is Kansas State, with No. 50 scoring defense that held Texas to just 19 points. 

- Home Team (Georgia) Total: 34.5 Points (-110) – Texas plays in a high-powered offensive neighborhood with the Big 12 conference, but the Longhorns have given up 34 or more points in six games this season. Meanwhile, Georgia comes into this matchup scoring 38.7 PPG and 46.3 PPG over its last three games. The Bulldogs have been held to fewer than 34.5 points just four times this season. Among these four games, once against Alabama's No. 4 scoring defense (28 points), against Kentucky's No. 7 scoring defense (34 points), against Auburn's No. 19 scoring defense (27 points) and against LSU No. 32 scoring defense (16 points).
