The No. 1 team in the nation, The Georgia Bulldogs remain a perfect 7-0 as they head into a Week 9 showdown against the Florida Gators in Jacksonville. 

The Gators enter this game with a 4-3 record and rank third in the SEC East Division. Their latest game ended in an upset loss to LSU as 12.5-point favorites. 

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were enjoying a bye week. The last time we saw the Georgia Bulldogs they were beating the Kentucky Wildcats by 17 as 21.5 favorites in Week 7. It was the first game Georgia failed to cover in the previous four weeks of play.

These two SEC rivals face-off in Week 9, lets go over the trends and betting odds for this game, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook

Georgia vs. Florida Prediction and Pick

This is a very tough matchup for Florida at home. To be fair, that can be said for most teams playing Georgia this season. The Bulldogs have a very strong offense, led by QB Stetson Bennett who should cross the 1,000-yard passing mark in this game. He also has 11 touchdowns and just two interceptions on the year.

Where Georgia really shines, however, is on defense. Georgia has the No. 1 ranked defense in opponents’ points per game, yards per game, and yards per play.  The rushing defense is especially strong, allowing just 2.2 yards per rush and holding teams to an average of 64.3 yards per game. 

Florida’s rushing game will be led by the same player as its passing game, Emory Jones. The versatile QB not only leads the team with 1,305 passing yards and ten touchdowns, he also leads them in rushing with 495 yards on the year. One very important stat to know is that despite his ten passing touchdowns, Jones has nine interceptions in seven games. This worrisome statistic has Florida ranked 119th in turnover margin. With three games with two interceptions thrown, I think the Jones is a massive liability against this Bulldog’s defense. It is clear that Jones still has some work to do on his decision-making abilities on the field. 

I think that Georgia has been looking stronger each week and will be rested coming off a bye. They will have had an extra week to prepare the defense for this game and I think they make the most of that extra time. Combined with Jones turnover issues and 3-4 ATS record, and I will be taking the road favorites here to remain unbeaten and cover the spread.

Prediction: Georgia -14.5 (-110)
