Week 9 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an SEC showdown between the Florida Gators and No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs. The Gators failed to extend their winning streak to three games in a 45-35 loss to the LSU Tigers on October 15. Running back Montrell Johnson scored 2 touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Georgia has ripped off two dominant wins after surviving a scare against Missouri in Week 5. The Bulldogs took care of business with a 55-0 drubbing of Vanderbilt their last time out (Oct. 15). Quarterback Stetson Bennett racked up 289 passing yards and 3 touchdowns in that one.

Moneyline: FLA: (+980) | GA: (-2100)
Spread: FLA: +21.5 (-105) | GA: -21.5 (-115)
Total: 56.5 — Over: (-115) | Under: (-105)

Georgia enters this contest as a clear favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This SEC clash also features a total of 56.5 points, which is about average compared to this week's college football projected totals.

Florida vs Georgia Prediction & Pick

The Bulldogs have to be careful on Saturday. They cannot afford to overlook a talented Gators squad with a matchup against the No. 3 Tennessee Volunteers up next in Week 10. Florida Quarterback Anthony Richardson can pull off an upset using his dual-threat capabilities to carve up a defense.

Head coach Kirby Smart will have his players prepared, though. Georgia has only lost to Florida once in the last five head-to-head meetings and is averaging a ridiculous 43.2 points per game in 2022 (No. 3 in FBS). On the other side, the Gators are allowing a whopping 30.0 points per game (No. 80 in FBS).

Final Score Prediction: Florida: 17 | Georgia: 42

Florida vs Georgia Betting Trends

- Florida is 3-11 against the spread (ATS) in its last 14 games.
- The total has hit the under in six of Florida's last eight games in October.
- Georgia is 5-0 straight up in its last five games against an SEC opponent.
- The total has hit the under in eight of Georgia's last nine games.

Florida vs Georgia Best Bet

These are two great offenses, but the under has hit in eight of Georgia's last nine games. It makes avoiding the total altogether a smart move here. Trusting the Bulldogs to emerge victorious in a rout is the best bet. After all, Georgia's average winning margin is an insane 32.5 points (No. 2 in FBS).

Not only is Georgia 6-3 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games, but Florida is 3-11 ATS in its last 14 games. These are two teams heading in opposite directions and that will prove to be true on Saturday. This game finished with a score of 34-7 in 2021 and I expect a similar result this time around.

Bet: Georgia -21.5 (-115)
