3 things to know before betting UGA as 24-point favorite vs. Kentucky

Georgia is 4-10 vs. the spread when favored by 20 or more at home under coach Kirby Smart.

The Bulldogs obviously lost outright as a 20-plus-point favorite last week vs. South Carolina, and are 1-2 against the spread in that scenario this season.

UGA has covered the spread in six-straight meetings vs. Kentucky.

UGA’s last outright loss to the Wildcats occurred in 2009. Kentucky hasn’t kept it under the number since it managed to cover two-straight in 2011-12. The Bulldogs current streak of covers has come against an average point spread of 14.66 points.

UGA has covered the spread in six of its last seven SEC games.

The loss last Saturday to the Gamecocks snapped a streak of six-straight covers the Bulldogs in SEC play — dating back to last season’s 36-16 loss at LSU Oct. 13. Smart is 18-11 against the spread in SEC play thus far in his career at UGA dating back to his first season in 2016 (Odds and trend data Courtesy of OddsShark).
