Online sportsbooks favor UGA by two touchdowns when the Georgia Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers play in week 5 of FBS college football action at Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Georgia Bulldogs are on an eleven-road game-winning streak heading into Auburn.
The Tigers are going to be looking to bounce back from a nasty loss last week to Texas A&M. Auburn was kept under 200 total yards by the Aggies. They have been held to 14 points or fewer in two of their past three games.
That does not bode well against a Georgia offense that has scored 45+ points in three out of four games this year. The Bulldogs have won and covered the best online sportsbooks’ point spread in each of their past six encounters with Auburn.

Georgia Bulldogs vs. Auburn Tigers
We’re leaning towards Georgia. We know that it’s Georgia’s first away game in conference play and in the first conference game Georgia won by just 10 points against South Carolina. However, Auburn has not shown us anything thus far. They narrowly beat Cal and blew out UMass and Samford before they were crushed by Texas A&M.
