Georgia vs. Auburn odds, line: 2018 college football picks, predictions from proven model on 7-3 roll
SportsLine's advanced computer model simulated Saturday's Georgia vs. Auburn game 10,000 times
Dating back to 1892, Georgia vs. Auburn earned its moniker as the "Deep South's Oldest Rivalry" through more than 125 years of consistent bad blood. They've only skipped playing each other five times since the rivalry originated. Saturday's meeting at 7 p.m. ET will be the 123rd meeting, and there's plenty on the line with No. 5 Georgia still pursuing the College Football Playoff and Auburn wanting nothing more than to play spoiler. The Bulldogs are 12.5-point favorites in the latest Georgia vs. Auburn odds, with the total set at 52.5. You'll want to check out the simulations from the proven computer model at SportsLine before locking in any Georgia vs. Auburn picks of your own.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors on its top-rated point-spread picks.
And in Week 10, it absolutely nailed the biggest game of the season, recommending the Crimson Tide against the spread (-14), on the money line (-588) and hitting the under in Alabama's 29-0 blowout of LSU. It also nailed its top-rated selection of Auburn (-3.5) over Texas A&M, helping the model finish the weekend on a strong 7-3 run on all top-rated picks. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, the model has crunched the numbers for Georgia vs. Auburn. We can tell you it's leaning Under, and it has also generated a strong point-spread pick that hits in nearly 70 percent of simulations. That selection is only available at SportsLine.
The model Georgia dominated all season long until its loss to LSU. However, the Bulldogs took their bye week at the perfect time and dusted themselves off to earn two huge SEC East wins and clinch the SEC East. That affords them no time to celebrate, though, as Auburn poses a serious threat to their College Football Playoff aspirations. Luckily, their defense is in sensational form right now.
And Georgia can beat teams in a multitude of ways. Against Florida, they only had one sack. However, they kept the Gators in front of them and managed to force three turnovers. Last week against Kentucky, Georgia managed four sacks and used that pressure to force the Wildcats into two more giveaways. Whether it's being fundamentally sound or aggressive, the defense will be key again versus Auburn.
But just because the Bulldogs have a formidable defense doesn't mean they cover against Auburn.
Auburn is battle-tested and quarterback Jarrett Stidham has the capability of being a great equalizer. The Baylor transfer hasn't been quite as effective as he was in 2017, but he was rock-solid in Auburn's upset victory over Georgia last season.
Stidham completed 16 of 23 pass attempts for 214 yards, three touchdowns and a rushing score in that game. If he can do that again, Auburn is going to have a chance to cover the almost two-touchdown spread on Saturday.
So, which side of the Auburn vs. Georgia spread cashes in nearly 70 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to jump on Saturday, all from the model that has returned over $4,000 in profit for $100 bettors.
