Outside of the weekend where we have the Conference Championship Games, there is probably no bigger week in the college football season than rivalry week. MyBookie Sportsbook Regular Season Football Betting Preview | Week 13 | #1 Georgia vs Georgia Tech
While it’s funs to watch so many heated rivals go head-to-head, it’s also important to remember that many of these games are going to have huge implications for the teams involved. For some, it’s all about staying alive in the hunt for a playoff spot, while for others, it’s about securing a spot in the conference championship or even securing a bowl game. In short, there are a ton of meaningful games on the schedule in Week 13 of the college football season. That includes the Georgia Bulldogs looking to maintain their match to a 3rd straight National Championship. They will face the Georgia Tech yellow Jackets this weekend and need to be sure that they don’t look ahead to Alabama next week. Georgia is a 24-point favorite, with the total set at 60 1/2 to consider in your NCAAF betting.
Georgia Bulldogs at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Game Info
When: Saturday November 25 at 7:30 PM EST
Where: Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta
If truth be told, it looked like history might be against the Georgia Bulldogs this season, as no team has won the National Championship in 3 straight seasons since way back in the 1930s. Early on, the talk was that this version of the Dawgs did not look as dominant as the previous two seasons, but the truth is that they are just a little different. While the championship winning teams were built on defense, this version is all about the offense, which we will get into a little deeper when we look at the stats and trends for this game. The Bulldogs look to be getting better with each passing week, which could prove to be very and news for their in-state rivals this coming Saturday.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
In the grand scheme of things, it is probably pretty much mission accomplished for the Yellow Jackets this season, as they have already won the 6 games required to become bowl eligible. While that was probably not their optimal goal for the year, it is the most realistic goal that they could hope to achieve. Of course, beating the Georgia Bulldogs would make this season a good deal better for fans of the Yellow Jackets, but you do have to wonder if they have what it takes to compete with a team that is an absolute juggernaut. Georgia Tech has won 3 of the last 4 games and appear to be finishing the season on a bit of a high, but I’m not so sure any of that translates into a win this weekend against a team that is looking to make it 30 straight wins.
Georgia Bulldogs at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets: Team Stats & Betting Trends
In terms of the race to win a conference championship and potentially making it into the playoffs, this weekend ranks as the biggest of the season. There are some games on the Week 13 schedule that will ultimately decide the fate of a number of teams, but we are going to need to wait one more week before we know which 4 teams will be heading to the College Football Playoff. The Georgia Bulldogs look like a good bet to once again be in the final four, but their appearance in the postseason is still not guaranteed. It would be a massive surprise to see them lose this weekend against their state rivals, but they also need to make sure that they are focused and not looking ahead to Alabama and the SEC Conference Championship Game next weekend. They head into their matchup with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets as a 24-point favorite, with the point total for this one set at 60 ½.
Georgia Bulldogs Stats and Trends
It was always going to be interesting to see how Georgia would perform season after losing a chunk of their starters from last season to the NFL Draft the biggest question was at the QB position, where Carson Beck took over from 2-time champion Stetson Bennett. It’s now clear that it was a smooth transition. The Dawgs are averaging 323 passing YPG (6th overall), while also averaging 40 PPG (5th). They are also averaging 178 YPG on the ground, so this is a team that can attack from all angles. On D, they are giving up just 15 PPG (5th).
Georgia has now won 28 straight games, as well as 27 straight conference games. They are an absolute juggernaut and have not let road games get in the way, as their win streak there is at 14 games. They have beaten the Yellow Jackets in 8 of the last 10 meetings, beating them by an average of about 21 PPG over that stretch. They have covered the spread in 4 of their last 6 meetings with Tech, with the OVER hitting in 6 of their last 8 games overall.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Stats and Trends
Georgia Tech is closing out the regular season on a bit of a high note, coming into this one having won 3 of their last 4 games to get to 6-3, which means that they are now bowl eligible. On offense, they are averaging 238 YPG (54th) through the air and 196 YPG (21st) on the ground, so they do have a pretty balanced attack. That has led to them scoring roughly 32 PPG, but they are also surrendering over 30 PPG, which is a bit of a problem.
With a bowl game assured, the Yellow Jackets can come into this one with some of the pressure off their shoulders, but you have to say that the trends don’t look to be in their favor for this one. Their struggles against Georgia are already known, but they have also lost 8 straight against teams from the SEC. Home field advantage has not helped against the Dawgs, with Tech failing to cover in each of their last 12 at home versus Georgia. The OVER has hit in each of their last 5 games overall.
College Football Score Prediction
With the SEC Championship Game looming large, you have to assume that Georgia is going to start pulling starters as soon as humanly possible, so look for them to come out with the foot very much on the gas. I like Georgia to win and cover the spread quite comfortably.
