Pick Details

(165) Georgia vs. Alabama (166) 8:00 PM | Sat, Oct 17 2020
Sport: NCAAF | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Score ALA 41 at UGA 24
-4.5 ALA (-109) @ Draftkings

This is a 10* play on Alabama.

The Crimson Tide scored 63 points in a win over Ole Miss last week, but the focus was on the 48 points that their defense allowed. We have rarely seen anyone come close to scoring 50 on Alabama in the Nick Saban era, but Ole Miss was torching them with big plays last week. They host Georgia in what is the SEC's Game of the Year on Saturday, and I don't think the Bulldogs offense will present the same challenges as Ole Miss. Stetson Bennett has been solid for Georgia, but with a pedestrian 63% completion percentage and five TDs in three starts. He doesn't really look like a guy who can take advantage of a suspect Alabama secondary. Alabama beat Georgia 35-28 in the SEC Championship Game in 2018 (most recent meeting) and UGA has lost five straight against the Tide dating back to 2007. I don't give the Dawgs much of a shot of pulling out an upset in Tuscaloosa, especially if Nick Saban is on the sidelines after consecutive negative Covid-19 tests.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
