Georgia Bulldogs at LSU Tigers
Saturday, October 13 at 2:30 pm CT; Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, LA
TV: CBS; Line: Georgia -7.5; Over/Under: 50.5
I’m shocked at how big this line is, but also Georgia is a damn good football team so they should be able to come away victorious. I think LSU’s defense will be up to the task of making Georgia one-dimensional. If Jake Fromm can find openings in LSU’s incredible pass defense it could be a blowout, but I don’t see it that way. Georgia wins a close one.

Georgia goes into Baton Rouge and picks up a big win as their schedule begins a huge gauntlet.

LSU has faced several difficult opponents so far this season, but none have been as difficult as their matchup against Georgia will be. Georgia’s defense should be pretty effective in containing LSU’s offense, but I expect this to be a competitive game from start to finish.

LSU returns home to Death Valley after suffering their first loss of the season to Florida. Their defense will be fired up after giving up 27 points to a Florida offense that had struggled up until they faced the Tigers. As for Georgia, this will be their toughest game of the season thus far and a true test of their mettle. I think this will be a low scoring game, with LSU ultimately not able to score enough points.

This could easily be a trap game for the 6-0 Bulldogs, but Georgia can afford a loss and still be in the conversation for both the SEC East and the College Football Playoff. LSU, now 5-1 after a loss to Florida, can’t afford to lose again with Alabama still ahead on the schedule.
Could Joe Burrow and the Bayou Bengals pull off the upset? Absolutely. Will it happen? I don’t think so. This will be Georgia’s first real test of 2018, but the Bulldogs will get the win.
