Go With the Flow: What to know before trying to bet UGA as a huge favorite vs. Charleston Southern

Who is Charleston Southern?

The Buccaneers are an FCS team that plays its games in The Big South conference. Charleston Southern is 4-5 on the season and 3-4 in conference play. College football data expert Jeff Sagarin rates the Bucs 189th out of 258 teams in Division I (FBS and FCS comined).

Bad news for bettors:

It’s common for sports books to ignore games between Power Five and FCS opponents. Therefore, someone who wants to wager on Georgia Saturday might have to put in some effort to find a line. The spread we used for Go With the Flow this week was UGA -54.5.

Good news for bettors:

While UGA might not provide many betting opportunities for gamblers, there are plenty of other games worth considering. The SEC slate features to UGA rivals trying to salvage what’s left of their seasons as road favorites when Florida travels to Missouri and Auburn heads to South Carolina. The weekend’s marquis matchups also feature Alabama and Ohio State trying to keep pace with the No. 1 Bulldogs as they play as big favorites against Arkansas and Michigan State respectively.
