Today, in tell your stats to shut up

If Georgia’s gonna win Saturday, they’ll definitely be doing it swimming upstream against the historical flow.

Against all odds

I’m not sure there’s any better evidence of how disruptive a force Tua Tagovailoa has been this season than that it took Vegas weeks to figure out how to set a line for Alabama games without losing money on it.

“Startling”

Mike Griffith is surprised that Georgia has come out as a 17-point favorite at home against Georgia Tech Saturday.  I’m not really sure why, other than a generic concern that borders on trolling.

The stat guys sure aren’t surprised by the spread.  Seventeen points is right in line with what Sagarin’s numbers call forESPN’s FPI makes Georgia’s chances to win at a tick over 90%.  Bill Connelly’s got a projected margin of 24+ points.

Yeah, Tech is currently on a four-game winning streak.  That’s been compiled on the backs of teams with a composite record of 19-23.  Not exactly the stuff legends are made from.

None of which isn’t to say the Jackets can’t pull an upset Saturday.  Hell, they’re on a two-game winning streak in Athens.  But to pretend that they don’t deserve to be a sizeable underdog is a stretch.

Monday morning buffet

With my Internet access at work down for almost a week, I had a bunch of stuff parked that I couldn’t post, so it’s time to sweep out the ashes.

Here comes the Gus Bus.

Welp, there’s a lot to like in this paragraph.

Auburn opened as a 13 1/2-point underdog for the latest installment of The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry against No. 5 Georgia, according to VegasInsider.com. The Tigers, who were favored in each of their first nine games this season, travel to Sanford Stadium on Saturday…

Quantity and quality.  I’m impressed.

Of course, that can only mean one thing.  Georgia is about to get Auburn’s best shot.

Vegas still believes.

Georgia, believe it or not, sits fifth in Phil Steele’s College Football Bettor Ranks.

Eh, what do they know?
