KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Saturday college football brings a slew of SEC matchups this week, with many longshot odds that appear tempting at online sportsbooks.
The Tennessee Volunteers are the underdogs in their match up with the Georgia Bulldogs, but Tennessee’s defense may be able to help them pull off the upset.
The Texas A&M Aggies also have longshot odds against the Florida Gators, but sports bettors may lean towards Texas A&M with how much points Florida allowed in their last game.
Tennessee Vs. Georgia
The Georgia Bulldogs are ranked No. 3 in the nation and have consistently held teams to low scoring outputs since the college football betting season began.
In both games played, Georgia held teams to just one scored touchdown. Sports bettors are expecting this defensive dominance to continue Saturday.
Tennessee Volunteers Vs. Georgia Bulldogs Odds
- Moneyline: Bulldogs -500, Volunteers +350
- Spread: Bulldogs +12.5
- Totals: Over/Under 43
This game is Georgia’s toughest matchup of the season so far when taking into account the Volunteers have one of the best offenses in the conference. Sports bettors may look at this as a possible upset, and lean towards taking action on the Volunteers to take the win.
It is not farfetched to say that Tennessee could put pressure on the Georgia defense, which would turn the game into an offensive shootout which could then be in Tennessee’s favor.
Texas A&M Vs. Florida
The Florida Gators are heavily favored in their match up with the Texas A&M Aggies, especially after the Aggies gave up 52 points in a loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide last week.
Florida Gators Vs. Texas A&M Aggies Odds
- Moneyline: Florida -240, Texas A&M +200
- Spread: Florida -7
- Totals: Over/Under 58
Despite this, however, Florida is only favored by a touchdown. Sports bettors do not seem to expect such a massive win from Florida which makes this betting line all the more appealing for taking the longshot odds on Texas A&M.
The truth is, Alabama is Alabama and there was a very small chance that Texas A&M would have been able to beat them. But the Gators offense is not as great, and if Texas A&M can manage to increase the defensive intensity, Florida is in for a fight.
Arkansas Vs. Auburn
The Auburn Tigers host the Arkansas Razorbacks and the No. 13 ranked Tigers are heavily favored to take the win.
Arkansas Razorbacks Vs. Auburn Tigers Odds
- Moneyline: Tigers -620, Razorbacks +410
- Spread: Tigers -14
- Totals: Over/Under 45
The Tigers are coming into Saturday's game after a horrendous showing against Georgia. The Bulldogs held the Tigers to just 6 points. Although Arkansas does not have such an elite defense, last week's game showed offensive liabilities on the side of Auburn.
If the Arkansas defense can find a way to exploit the same deficiencies, then they could possibly pull the upset come Saturday.
