Georgia hasn’t been a double-digit underdog at home since 2001, and former Georgia linebacker and current College GameDay analyst David Pollack thinks that is a huge mistake by Vegas.
On Sportscenter on Saturday morning, Pollack projected his Bulldogs to upset No. 9 ranked Auburn thanks to some untimely injuries for the Tigers.
“If you look at Georgia-Auburn, this is a game that’s always close,” Pollack said. “Auburn’s 2-8 against Georgia in their last 10 games and they’re also banged up. Kamryn Pettway’s hurting and so is Sean White.”
Pettway is suffering from a leg injury, and his status is still unknown ahead of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry. White is suffering from a shoulder injury, but he was eventually able to play in last week’s game against Vanderbilt.
While Pollack didn’t pick the game on GameDay, he double-down on his analysis on why Georgia will be able to keep it close at the very least.
Auburn and Georgia play at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday on CBS.
