Way to go, Dad.
Looking for a betting guide for bowl season? This may not be definitive, but at least it’s lengthy. Here’s their Sugar Bowl take:
Sugar Bowl: Georgia (-7½) vs. Baylor
8:45 p.m., ESPN
Last year, the Bulldogs lost in the SEC championship game, earned a spot in the Sugar Bowl and lost outright to Texas as a 12.5-point favorite. This year, Georgia lost in the SEC championship game, earned a spot in the Sugar Bowl and once again is a favorite over a team from Texas. Will the Bulldogs discover a sense of motivation? [Emphasis added.]
Winner: Georgia, 59 percent
Neil’s pick: Georgia -7½
Matt’s pick: Georgia -7½
That question is worth $64000.
No surprise here.
Just remember, Dawgs, it’s not where Vegas sets the line, but where you finish the game that matters.
Behold, the efficiency of markets!
The posted total for Georgia-Auburn opened at 45.5 on Sunday at Circa Sports, and it hovered at 44 on Tuesday morning.
I was preparing to recommend a play on the under, but it got hammered to 40.5 on Tuesday afternoon.
I mentioned yesterday that Georgia tends to see Auburn’s best when the Tigers are still playing for bigger stakes, which, realistically speaking, they won’t be doing this year. It seems only fair, however, to cite a couple of things that run in favor of the Gus Bus.
One is something you’ve probably heard about.
For what it’s worth, though, none of those wins have come against Georgia.
There’s also this.
Here’s the list of those:
Again, no Georgia there, although Auburn is on there twice, both way before Malzahn’s time.
Interesting stuff. I don’t think any of it trumps Georgia being the team with more to play for Saturday.
Just consider this…
We’re lucky enough to live in a country where you can bet on the chance that Petrino or Nutt gets another shot to coach at Arkansas. #trulyblessed
