3 things to know before betting UGA as a seven-point underdog vs. LSU

Georgia has been a strong performer in the underdog role as of late.

Georgia has covered five-straight games when its opponent was favored, and won three of those contests straight up according to ESPN’s Chris “The Bear” Fallica. The last time the Bulldogs weren’t favored was a year ago in the 2018 SEC Championship Game when UGA was a 12-point underdog to Alabama.

LSU is 7-3-2 against the spread this season.

The Tigers have won 13-straight games dating back to a 40-32 win against UCF in last year’s Fiesta Bowl, but LSU hasn’t been perfect against the spread this season. The Tigers most recently failed to cover as 41.5-point favorites in a 56-20 win vs. Arkansas on Nov. 23. LSU pushed as 21-point favorites in a 58-37 win against Ole Miss on Nov. 16. The Tigers were also kept within the point spread in wins against Auburn, Florida and Northwestern State according to OddsShark.

The “under” has hit in nine of UGA’s 12 games this season.

The total went over for the Bulldogs in their 52-7 win at Georgia Tech. Marking just the third time that’s occurred this season, and just the second instance for UGA against a Power-Five opponent. The high-powered offense of LSU has led to considerably more overs for the Tigers. The total has gone over in eight of LSU’s 12 games this season.
