Kentucky vs. Georgia NCAAF Week 12 Betting Odds & Pick.

Kentucky vs. Georgia NCAAF Week 12 Betting Odds & Pick

Written by on November 15, 2017

Prior to the days of the College Football Playoff committee, arguments would rage about which two teams were deserving of a place in the National Championship Game. The committee was supposed to put an end to such scuffles, but when you have a season like this one, those little arguments arise again. Unbeaten Alabama clearly deserves to be #1, but after that, you could make an argument for several different teams to be in the top 4, including the huge NCAAF Week 12 betting odds favorite Georgia Bulldogs.The Bulldogs saw themselves drop from #1 to #7 after getting whupped by Auburn, yet they are stunned to be ranked below an Auburn team that has one more loss. Georgia are still basically in control of their own destiny in regards the playoffs, you would think. Winning their final two regular-season games and hoisting the SEC crown would almost certainly get them in, as there is no way a 1-loss SEC Champion is missing the playoffs.Their quest to go unbeaten begins this weekend when they welcome in the surprisingly good Kentucky Wildcats to Sanford Stadium. Georgia is a 21 ½ point favorite for this one, with the point total set at 50 ½.

Why bet on the Kentucky Wildcats?

The Kentucky Wildcats have been an afterthought in the SEC for quite some time now, but it looks as though things may be beginning to change. At 7-3 on the year, this is without a doubt the best season that the program has had in years, and while they cannot win the SEC East, they can still put the final nail in the Georgia playoff coffin. This is a team that has been good on the road this season, going 3-1 SU, but they are also a team that gives up points on the road to victory.The Wildcats are allowing over 120 YPG on the ground, which could prove problematic against Georgia’s potent run game. That said, the Wildcats are offensively gifted and could cause problems for a Dawgs D that was torched by Auburn last week. Kentucky has only won once in their last 11 visits to Athens, and are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games in Georgia.

Why bet on the Georgia Bulldogs?

The talk all year was about how Georgia was eventually going to need to find a way to win when the run game wasn’t working. That came last week against Auburn, but QB Jake Fromm never really got the opportunity to show what he was made of, as the Tigers D totally dominated the line and pressured him in almost every snap. Georgia will have a better opportunity to get back to what made them successful this season, as they should be able to move the ball against the Wildcat defense.Georgia comes in as huge NCAAF Week 12 Betting Odds favorite.The question now is whether they are going to be able to pick themselves up after such a resounding loss. They will need to, as their playoff life depends on it. Georgia has won 5 straight at home, and have defeated Kentucky in each of their last 5 meetings.
