Georgia vs Tennessee Prediction

Georgia is coming into this game as a 20.5 point favorite with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. They have been smashing every team that they play and they have the best defense in the nation. Tennessee has been playing well in their games but they are going up against a defense that they have not seen anything like it this season. They are going to struggle to score any points on this Georgia defense. Georgia will eventually pull away as the game goes on as The Vols will not be able to score any points on them to keep this a close game. The best bet to place in this game is on Georgia to cover the spread here.
