The top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs will look to remain undefeated heading into their annual neutral-site matchup against the Florida Gators. While Georgia is among the national title favorites, Florida will not be involved in any postseason discussion. Regardless, this game means a lot to both schools, the players and coaches, so the Gators will bring their best effort on Saturday afternoon in Jacksonville.
Here’s all the data you’ll want, and a pick for the game!

Spread: Georgia -14
Moneyline: Georgia -630, Florida +450
Opening line: Georgia -13
Opening total: 46.5
Hopefully this number can get driven up to 14.5 closer to kickoff, but we’ll take Florida as 14-point dogs. This seems like a great buy-low opportunity with the Gators as the last memory of them was a brutal loss to the LSU Tigers, which announced 2021 will be Ed Orgeron’s final season the very next day.
While Georgia has a ton to play for the rest of the season, Florida is likely looking at Saturday’s matchup as their Super Bowl. The Gators rank No. 3 in yards per play against FBS opponents this season, and I’m not betting them to lose by two touchdowns in a rivalry game.
