Why Georgia can cover
The Bulldogs haven't lost since the aforementioned 2021 SEC Championship Game and during their 29-game winning streak, they've won by double-digits 24 times. Brock Bowers is expected to return for this game after sitting last week against Georgia Tech because of ankle soreness.
One of the nation's top playmakers, he'll be used all over the field to create mismatches against an Alabama defense that has given up at least 20 points in six of its last seven games. The Georgia offense has averaged 7.2 yards per play this season and the Bulldogs have been exceptionally balanced, running the ball 423 times and throwing it 399 times. See picks at SportsLine.
Why Alabama can cover
Since losing to Texas in Week 2, Alabama has ripped off 10 wins in a row and the Crimson Tide have covered the spread in seven of their last nine games. Jalen Milroe responded well to an early-season benching and has gone on to put up exceptional numbers, throwing for 2,524 yards and 21 touchdowns with six interceptions while also rushing for 439 yards and 12 scores.
Milroe's confidence should be sky-high after his miraculous touchdown pass to Isaiah Bond on 4th-and-goal from the 31-yard line in the final minute to defeat Auburn in the Iron Bowl last week. Meanwhile, the Alabama defense has held opponents to just 4.9 yards per play this season with playmakers like Dallas Turner, Chris Braswell and Justin Eboigbe creating havoc behind the line of scrimmage all year. That trio has combined for 33.5 tackles for loss and 20 sacks in 2023. See picks at SportsLine.
