Why Georgia can cover
Georgia overcame a 14-3 halftime deficit against South Carolina last week, outscoring the Gamecocks 21-0 in the second half. Running back Daijun Edwards had 20 carries for 118 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Carson Beck completed 27 of 35 passes for 269 yards, connecting with nine different receivers in his first Southeastern Conference start.
The Bulldogs entered the red zone six times against South Carolina but only scored three touchdowns, giving them room for improvement on Saturday. They have already blown out two inferior opponents this season, and UAB is coming off back-to-back double-digit losses. Georgia has the longest home winning streak in college football, and UAB has only covered once in its last six games.
Why UAB can cover
Georgia might be the best team in college football, but it has not been a profitable team in the betting market. The Bulldogs have only covered once in their last seven Saturday games, failing to cover in their first three games this season. They were 26.5-point favorites in their 24-14 win over South Carolina, allowing the Gamecocks to rack up 17 first downs.
UAB junior quarterback Jacob Zeno has already racked up 956 passing yards and six touchdowns, throwing for at least 280 yards in every game. Sophomore running back Isaiah Jacobs has 127 rushing yards and a touchdown, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. Georgia is dealing with multiple key injuries and has not been a trustworthy team to back this season. See which team to pick here.
