Georgia vs Virginia Prediction

Georgia is coming into this game as an 8.5 point underdog with the current betting odds according to the online bookmakers. Virginia is a team that has been known for being one of the best teams in the nation for years, even showing up as the number 1 ranked team a few times in the last few years. They are not even a ranked team this season and they have been struggling in their games with 2 losses already. Georgia has not been playing any better with the same record but they are not going to lose by that much in this game on a neutral site.

Notable Quotes

 
“I'll open it up. Ready? Unfortunately when you're four games in like this with such a new group there is a lot of learning that's going on. When we show that learning we end up doing a pretty good job, like being in position to draw charges, forcing an extra pass. But there is too many times as one of the coaches said, and he said it right, we're out there just playing basketball, right, rather than thinking basketball.” - Tom Crean on his team’s loss against GT.
 
 
“We’re still finding ourselves and figuring out our rotations.” - Tony Bennett on his team’s 2-2 start to the season.
