The Bulldogs grinded out a 10-3 win over Clemson in a neutral-site affair in their opener Sept. 4. They have since re-discovered the offense against UAB and South Carolina, averaging 48.0 points per game (PPG) in back-to-back routs, both Over results.

The Commodores picked up their first win Sept. 11 in a 24-21 victory at Colorado State, but they returned home and were flattened by Stanford 41-23 seven days later. Vandy is 0-2 straight up and 0-2 against the spread in two home games.

Georgia at Vanderbilt odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Georgia 52, Vanderbilt 10

Money line

It shouldn't even need to be said, but you cannot play Georgia (-100000) as there is just no value on a crazy line like this.

AVOID and look to the spread instead.

Against the spread

GEORGIA -34.5 (-117) has found its offense in games against inferior foes UAB and South Carolina. Vanderbilt is much worse. It has absolutely no way of challenging the UGA defense and scoring. It would be a huge upset if Vandy were able to cover the spread, quite frankly. This is one of the worst teams in a Power 5 conference.

Over/Under

OVER 51.5 (- 110) is the play. Georgia should be able to take care of business on its own. Vanderbilt isn't likely to offer much in the way of offense anyway. The Over is 2-0 in the past two games for UGA, as it is averaging 48.0 PPG during the stretch, while allowing just 10.0 PPG. Expect more of the same here, and it could be even more lopsided.
