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 13-point favorite vs. Texas A&M

Georgia is 19-10-1 against the spread in its last 30 SEC games.

The Bulldogs have covered three-straight conference games (winning at 21-14 as 3-point favorites at Auburn, 27-0 vs. Missouri as 18.5-point favorites and 24-17 as 6.5-point favorites against Florida). However, prior to that stretch, the Bulldogs failed to cover in consecutive games — including a win vs. Kentucky in rainy conditions, and in an “outright” loss to South Carolina.

Texas A&M is 2-2 against the spread as a road underdog under coach Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher’s teams are 0-4 straight up in those games — including losing 24-10 as a 16-point underdog at Clemson in September. The Aggies also came up short against Auburn (28-24 as 3.5-point underdogs), Mississippi State (28-13 as a one-point underdog) and Alabama (45-23 as 24.5-point underdogs) in 2018.

The total has gone “under” in five-straight UGA games.

The Bulldogs’ stingy defense, and — sometimes — sputtering offense has profited bettors who’ve taken the under. The last UGA total to go over was the 43-14 win at Tennessee on Oct. 5, a game in which UGA needed a late defensive score to exceed the total. For the year, UGA has played in two games that have gone over, and eight in which the total has stayed under. The total for Saturday is 44 (Odds and trend data courtesy of OddsShark).
