One of the SEC's greatest rivalries returns to center stage in one of the most unusual college football seasons we've ever seen this Saturday as the No. 8 Florida Gators and No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs clash in Jacksonville.

Neither of these SEC titans has gotten off to the start their respective fanbases were hoping for, as each team heads into Saturday's Week 10 matchup in danger of losing their second game of the season with control of the SEC East on the line.

Yet, the oddsmakers have already revealed their cards on who they think has the upper hand on this year's neutral playing ground in Jacksonville.

Sitting less than one week away from this infamous rivalry's 98th all-time meeting, Georgia has opened as a rather convincing 3.5-point favorite over the Gators, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Bulldogs boast an active 3-game winning streak in this series, as well as the 52-43-2 all-time series lead over Florida. However, given Georgia's rather alarming issues in the passing game behind QB Stetson Bennett in recent weeks, it's hard to see the Bulldogs asserting their dominance in the ground game behind Zamir White against this Florida defense.

There's still plenty of time for things to change between now this Saturday battle between these two SEC East powerhouses, but the Bulldogs remain early favorites for the time being. Barring any massive line movement we may see in the meantime, Georgia and Florida are set to meet at 3:30 p.m. EST at TIAA Bank Stadium in Jacksonville on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020.
