Golden Nugget individual game lines are out…

… and some of Georgia’s numbers may surprise you.

  • South Carolina Gamecocks at Georgia Bulldogs (-11)
  • Alabama Crimson Tide at Georgia Bulldogs (Pick)
  • Georgia Bulldogs at Tennessee Volunteers (Pick)
  • Missouri Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs (-8.5)
  • Florida Gators vs. Georgia Bulldogs (-12) in Jacksonville
  • Georgia Bulldogs at Auburn Tigers (Pick)
  • Georgia Bulldogs (-1) at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Were that Alabama-Georgia line to hold up ’til game day, it would be the first time in something like seventy games in which the Tide didn’t enter a game as the favorite.

That’s not the weirdest to me, though.  Tennessee is getting some crazy love at home – a home pick ’em against Georgia and a three-point favorite against Oklahoma, for starters.  But the Vols are still listed as a ten-point dog in Tuscaloosa.

Oh, and that Tech line?  FSU is a one-point underdog in Atlanta.

    I sure wouldn’t bet on us at Knoxville.

    If there is a game on the schedule that screams letdown/face plant that’s it.

    Combine that with very close games recently against the vols and that’s the game that scares me the most.

    Maybe we can exorcise the demons that caused all those injuries last time we were in Knoxville and throttle them, but with all the attention on Alabama the week before I wouldn’t count on it

      F that, I’m putting the house payment the 401K, and the kid’s college fund’s all on UGA in Knox. Not having to give UT any pts? What could possibly go wrong?

      UT has a rougher or just as rough group of games as we do.

    Several suprises there, but aren’t these lines established by the way people are betting? (I find it amazing that people would be betting on college games this early in the year). If so, South Carolina gamblers must be onto some discouraging info..because they usually are drunk on coolaid..and the Tennessee gambling crowd has taken their place..lacing their coolaid with moonshine and taking it as an anal douche..(I read on here somewhere that that’s the way they do it in K’ville). But the GT line is the wierdest. I’m thinking -14 to -28 is more realistic.

    Nobody is betting on these lines and there’s no information. A couple weeks into the season, they will all move into familiar territory.

    I think everyone of you should bet the farm on the AU game.

    • Those lines are published in order to bet on. I don’t think they are for informational purposes only. You can place a bet today using those lines. They will then move in what ever direction it takes to get equal betting on the other side. It would be a great time to place bets on the Dawgs vs Tech, Mizz and UT before the lines start moving. However, you are correct, there is little real info. That’s why I would not bet against AU, they are a big unknown IMO.

      WarD Eagle…you’ve always been a pretty classy non-Dawg poster here..So I’m wondering if I detect snarkism in your last sentence or if you are a little less than optimistic about AU’s chances this year? You’ve surely seen all the posts on here (ie “I’m not getting all the love being shown Auburn”..). How do you see the Tigers this year? The SEC?

        I’m like everyone else. I have no reason to believe AU will be undefeated.

        Not a doomsayer, but it’s midsummer and no one has played a game. What happens if AU comes out and destroys UL? Do they become full of themselves and lose or do they understand what it takes to win and run the table?

        In a similar vein, I have a few reasons to think they won’t. How many SEC teams make it through the year undefeated? Eventually, it’s only one – at best.

        What are the odds of AU getting through late fall unscathed against sasnakrA, UGA, LSU, and SPUAT?

        AU doesn’t have a proven dominate system. Offense lost an all-world running game, defense has to prove it can stop someone.

        Do I hope they run the table ad can I see a way for it to happen? Sure.

        It sill get back to UGA. All they have to do is run Chubb run Chubb run Chubb, have a middling defense, and good special teams and they should be able to beat most teams in the country on any given Saturday. I think most people don’t understand the value of having a truly one of a kind player.

        So, I shudder at preseason beauty reviews and remain ever hopeful that the stars align for a magical season.

          That being said, why do you think Aub has been zeroed in as a media darling this early? We saw the same think last season and Ga fans didn’t believe it then either.

          • Forgoing the all-important UGA fan opinion, I’ll repeat what the press says, but I can’t tell you why they think that.

            In the preseason beauty contest, why wouldn’t they pick AU? They have a QB that by all accounts is going to do very well, a plethora of running backs, a mature OL, a defense that has a very good pass rusher returning – who many believe was the most important missing piece returning, a defensive backfield that should be much improved, and arguably one of the best DCs in the business.

            Is none of that a guarantee for success? Sure, but that why they think AU will do well. There’s the success, sorry, luck, of that Malzahn guy also.

            We’ll know more some time after dove season starts.

            I’ll give you my opinion on that Cojo. AU has 2 recent examples of walking the walk. The meme is that Gus is some kind of offensive genius who is going to have a great offense no matter what. ( Despite the GA- AU game last year). Add to that the meme that Boom is some kind of defensive genius who’s real strength is being a DC. Add those things together and how could AU not make the CFP? I don’t agree with the above, but that is the BS everyone is buying. But with my damn luck Gus will stick that horseshoe up his ass again and they will go all the way.

    UT defense is sure to give up a bunch of points in the second half if Schotty has an ounce of Cutcliffe in him.

    -1 versus Tech in Atlanta? Just think, without the three points for having home field advantage, the Jackets would be favored.

    Betting on games in June is very dumb but there is a decent strategy that I would suggest to anyone visiting Vegas soon that can get those lines above:
    Put $1K on UGA against TN, and $1K on UGA versus Tech. Excellent chance we win both of those, and at worse we split (imo). You can win $2000 and only pay out $100. if they split. That isn’t a true 20-1 bet because you could lose both and have to pay $2200….and the sun my not come up tomorrow either.
