What to Know
The Vanderbilt Commodores have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Vanderbilt and the Georgia Bulldogs will face off in an SEC battle at 1 p.m. ET Saturday at Stegeman Coliseum. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.
The Commodores ended up a good deal behind the Alabama Crimson Tide when they played on Tuesday, losing 78-66. The losing side was boosted by guard Tyrin Lawrence, who had 20 points in addition to five rebounds.
Meanwhile, UGA received a tough blow on Tuesday as they fell 85-71 to the Kentucky Wildcats. Guard Terry Roberts (21 points) was the top scorer for UGA.
Vanderbilt is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 5-1 against the spread when expected to lose.
Vanderbilt was fully in charge when the two teams previously met in March of last year, breezing past the Bulldogs 86-51. The Commodores' victory shoved UGA out of the playoffs, so they have a target on their back.
