No. 2 Georgia opens as massive favorite against Tennessee
If No. 2 Georgia is to slip up against any of its remaining SEC East opponents, Vegas certainly doesn’t think it’ll happen this weekend.
The Bulldogs opened as 32.5-point favorites at home against Tennessee on Saturday, according to gambling website betonline.ag. Earlier this year, Georgia was expected to beat Middle Tennessee State by just many points and had no problem covering the spread.
Georgia is a 32.5-point favorite this week over Tennessee. The Bulldogs were 32.5-point favorites over Middle Tennessee for their Sept. 15 game and won 49-7.

Georgia has already passed what appears to be two tougher division tests, beating South Carolina 41-17 and Missouri 43-29, both the road. The Volunteers, meanwhile, took a 47-21 loss against Florida in their SEC opener last Saturday.
Given just how large the spread is on Monday, it’ll likely see a little movement down throughout the week. But the Bulldogs (4-0, 2-0 SEC) should still be heavy favorites when they host Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
