The Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers will meet on January 12 in Auburn Arena as both teams will look for a conference victory. Georgia enters this game with a 9-5 record including a blowout win against Vanderbilt in its last game. Meanwhile, Auburn is 11-3 this season as it was lost to Ole Miss in its last game. Now, both teams will be looking to improve upon their respective records.

Georgia Dominates Vanderbilt

This season, the Georgia Bulldogs has been pretty solid as it has won nine of its first 14 games. However, the team did not start conference play out on the right foot as the team got annihilated by Tennessee in its first conference game of the season en route to a 46 point loss. While some teams might have folded after such an abysmal showing, Georgia managed to rally and destroyed a quality Vanderbilt team at home in its last game en route to a 19 point win. In that game, the Bulldogs scored 82 points on over 46% shooting from the floor. With a quality team up next, Georgia’s offense better continue playing well.

The Georgia Bulldogs are led by sophomore forward Rayshaun Hammonds who has taken on a bigger role this season after being a productive role player last season. Last season, Hammonds only averaged 6.7 points per game along with 4.9 rebounds. This season, he has had to take on a bigger role and has responded quite nicely to the challenge as he is leading the team in scoring with 14.2 points per game while shooting an impressive 52.2% from the floor. If Georgia plans on pulling off this upset, he better play well in this one.

Auburn Gets Embarrassed By Ole Miss

Last season, the Auburn Tigers went 26-8 and made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament before losing to Clemson. This season, the team looked to make it even further in the tournament this season behind some veteran leadership. So far this season, the team has been extremely solid as it is currently ranked 11th in the AP Poll and possesses an 11-3 record. However, the team got blown out in its first conference game of the season by Ole Miss as the team lost by 15 points. In that game, Auburn’s offense was awful as it only scored 67 points on less than 33% shooting from the floor. With a home game up next, look for Auburn’s offense to find its groove again.

The Auburn Tigers are led by senior guard Bryce Brown who has been great this season. Last season, Brown averaged 15.9 points per game and 1.7 assists per game. However, he only shot 40.1% from the floor and looked to become more efficient this upcoming season. So far this season, he has been great as he is currently leading the team in scoring with 15.9 points per game and 2.3 assists. However, he is only shooting 40.9% from the floor as inefficiency has plagued him once again this season. If Auburn plans on winning this game, he will have to be efficient from the floor.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Auburn is the better team but I simply think that this is too many points for the Tigers to cover. Auburn is coming off of a humiliating defeat that partially exposed the team for its extreme reliance on three pointers. Georgia is a good team that has the veteran leadership to keep this team focused in such a hostile environment. I think that Georgia will guard the three point line well in this contest as it covers the spread. Give me the underdog plus the points in this one.

Prediction: Georgia

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Auburn likes to run uptempo and Georgia does not have an issue with that. Auburn’s best two players love to shoot quick jumpshots and to run the break in order to get some transition points. I expect Georgia to have no issues scoring on this Auburn defense as both teams should be able to score pretty easily in this game. Give me the over as a result.

Prediction: Over
