A pair of heavyweight SEC contenders meet in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Saturday when No. 2 Georgia visits No. 13 LSU at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS and CBSSports.com. The Tigers pose perhaps the biggest regular-season challenge for a Georgia team with national title aspirations, while LSU looks to get back in the hunt after a tough road loss at Florida last week. The Bulldogs are 7.5-point favorites in the latest Georgia vs. LSU odds, while the over-under is 50.5 points. In a game that will have major implications on both sides of the SEC standings, be sure to check out the Georgia vs. LSU picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer before locking in any 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.
The model made some huge calls in Week 6, including recommending Texas (+226) on the money line in its massive upset of No. 7 Oklahoma. It finished the week on an 8-2 run on all of its college football picks, and when it comes to top-rated picks, it is now an impressive 64-52 on the year. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, the model has simulated Georgia vs. LSU 10,000 times to produce strong against-the-spread, money-line and over-under picks. We can tell you it’s leaning under, and it also has an extremely strong pick against the spread, saying one side hits almost 60 percent of the time. You can only see that one at SportsLine.
The model has taken Georgia’s strong run through the SEC East into account. The Bulldogs have already faced four of the other six teams in their division and only Missouri managed to come within two scores of the reigning SEC East champions.
A strong defense and balanced offense have been key for the Bulldogs. Quarterback Jake Fromm is completing 72.8 percent of his passes, while six different players have recorded at least 100 yards on the ground this season. Add in a top-ranked defense, and Georgia has the look of a contender for the College Football Playoff.
But that doesn’t guarantee that the Bulldogs will cover the spread against a tough SEC crossover opponent in LSU.
The Tigers were in the top five as recently as last week before a road setback against the Gators. Back in the confines of Tiger Stadium this week, LSU still has a chance to control its own destiny in the SEC standings if they can pull an upset against the Bulldogs.
And like Georgia, LSU prides itself on physicality. Running backs Nick Brossette and Clyde Edwards-Helaire have combined for 13 touchdowns. Transfer quarterback Joe Burrow (53.9 completion percentage) hasn’t been as accurate as Fromm, but with just two interceptions, he has limited mistakes and given LSU a chance in every game.
So which side of the Georgia vs. LSU spread cashes in nearly 60 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of Georgia vs. LSU you need to be all over, all from the model that has returned over $4,000 in profit for $100 bettors.
