Georgia football is one of the favorites to win the national championship this season, and many Bulldogs fans who are watching those odds are also watching the week-to-week point spreads as well. With that in mind, DawgNation is proud to share a brand new show — in partnership with R.S. Andrews — called Go With the Flow. It offers a chance to hear from some of your favorite DawgNation personalities as they share their thoughts on UGA, and the other big games each week around college football, and play along with R.S. Andrews’ Dari Payrow as he decides which picks he likes best.

3 things to know before betting UGA as a 5-point favorite  vs. Florida

Kirby Smart is 2-0 in head-to-head meetings as a head coach vs. Dan Mullen.

Smart has won both his matchups with Mullen as a head coach, and covered the spread in each of those instances by an average of 20 points. UGA beat Mullen — still at Mississippi State — 31-3 as a 2.5-point favorite in 2017, and beat Florida 36-17 as a seven-point favorite last year.

Mullen has earned four “outright” wins as an underdog at Florida.

While Mullen didn’t enjoy success as an underdog vs. UGA last year, the Gators have been good against almost everyone else in that spot. According to ESPN’s Chris Fallica, Florida has won straight up in four of the six instances in which it was a point-spread underdog under Mullen.

Both coaches have a better than .500 record against the spread in SEC play.

UGA is 21-9 straight up in its last 30 SEC matchups, and 18-11-1 against the spread. Florida is 9-4 straight up under Mullen, and 7-5-1 against the spread (Odds and trend data — expect where noted — provided by OddsShark).
