3 things to know before betting UGA as a 3-point favorite at Auburn

Georgia is 3-1 against the spread vs. Auburn with Kirby Smart as coach.

The Bulldogs pulled off an “outright” upset as a 10-point underdog in 2016 when they beat Auburn 13-7 at Sanford Stadium. UGA also won 28-7 as a two-point favorite in the 2017 SEC Championship Game, and UGA covered a 13-point spread in a 27-10 win against Auburn in Athens last season. However, the one outlier is UGA’s only trip to Jordan-Hare Stadium in the Smart era — a 40-17 loss for the Bulldogs as a 2.5-point favorite in 2017.

UGA is 9-4 against the spread as a road favorite under Smart.

In addition to the 2017 Auburn loss, the Bulldogs also lost straight up to LSU 36-16 last season as seven-point road favorites, and UGA has failed to cover its two most recent trips to Missouri — winning 43-29 as 14.5 favorites last season and 28-27 as seven-point favorites in 2016.

Auburn is 9-0 off a bye under coach Gus Malzahn.

This info comes courtesy of Cole Cubelic’s Twitter. The SEC Network analyst also shared that the Tigers have outscored opponents 282-180 in those games, and the cumulative record of the teams Auburn has beaten was 45-40.
