College football odds, Florida vs. Georgia 2012

Chris Trotman

The Florida Gators opened as favorites in Saturday's game against the Georgia Bulldogs, and the week's action has only pushed the line higher.

The No. 2 Florida Gators opened the week as 3.5 point favorites over the No. 10 Georgia Bulldogs, and the week's momentum has only carried them further in that direction. The latest odds have the Gators minus-7 in the contest, indicating a majority of bettors see a decisive win coming for Florida. The total for the game opened at 48 and remains close.

The Gators are 6-1 against the spread in 2012, and have hit the over in three of their seven games. The Bulldogs are 2-5 against the spread, but have hit the over five times.

The rushing game is expected to be decisive, with Florida having the advantage both on offense (213 yards per game vs. 205) and on defense (97 ypg allowed vs. 168.) While Georgia's offense is averaging nearly 10 points more than Florida's, the Gator defense is fourth in the nation and giving up only 12.1 points per game, well ahead of the Bulldogs' 24.1 ppg.
