Auburn vs Georgia Week 11 College Football Expert Pick

Written by on July 26, 2016

The “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry” will renew itself in Week 11 of the 2016 college football betting season as the Auburn Tigers head to Georgia to take on the Georgia Bulldogs. These two SEC foes first met in 1892 and have met 119 times all in all. This is a highly competitive series, as Georgia barely leads, 56-55 (with 8 ties). Georgia has also won the last two meetings, including a 20-13 win on the road a year ago. We are still weeks away from the season kickoff, although, we have a prepared an early game preview with college football odds analysis and betting prediction for all fans.

Auburn vs Georgia Week 11 College Football Expert Pick

When: Saturday, November 12, 2016, Time TBA Where: Sanford Stadium, Athens, GA TV: TBA Radio: Auburn IMG Network Live Stream: AuburnTigers.com NCAA Odds: Georgia -6.5  

Why should you bet on Auburn?

Jovon Robinson was a bright spot for the Tigers last year, picking up at last 90 yards in five of the last six games, despite spending most of the season as the backup. The team still needs to pick a quarterback — John Franklin III is the leading candidate thanks to his speed and the team’s zone-read offense. The wideouts (Tony Stevens and Marcus Davis) need to prove themselves for Auburn to be a contender in the SEC West, and the team has two new starters at the offensive tackle position. The defense should be solid, as Montravius Adams and Carl Lawson patrol the defensive line, and Rudy Ford and Tray Matthews are solid at safety, as is cornerback Carlton Davis. Daniel Carlson nailed four field goals from beyond 50 yards last year,  making him one of the top kickers in the SEC.

Why should you put your money on the Bulldogs?

Tailback Nick Chubb returns to key the Georgia offense, and the team has a solid group of wide receivers. But with the running game averaging about 200 yards a game last year, if they can continue this production, then Brice Ramsey simply needs to focus on passing efficiently instead of carrying the burden of the offense. The offensive line still has some questions to answer, with holes at right guard and left tackle. The defense finished #1 in the nation last year against the pass and was #7 overall. By Week 11, the injuries should have healed and the suspensions from the off-season will (hopefully) be over.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Tigers just have too many issues on offense to pay a visit to Georgia and win. I’m predicting a 24-10 Bulldgog victory.
