Funny observation, I am having a great year against the spread, rolling for the last 3 years. Maybe you haven't seen all the plays because I haven't hit them all. Whatever floats your boat, but don't mislead because I have had a good last two years. It's all just opinions and I respect everyone that presents their thoughts civilly and honestly.
No question an upset is possible but any analysis would give you the same outcome on this game. Better take a look at this series, long term and since the Triple Option came to GT. The only win GT has since 2000 is a come from behind game in 2008 where they had a wicked 3rd Qtr and was beaten the other three. UGA sees the option every year, it isn't a surprise to them like it is some schools. Georgia is 3rd in the SEC against the run, their weakness is in the secondary and Vad Lee hasn't shown he is a good passer against anyone. Last year Tech had 300 yards rushing but was beaten 42-10, and the game wasn't that close.
Murray's loss would hurt any team but Mason has been in the program 4 years and was ready to be the starter in 2013 but Murray decided to come back and not go to the NFL, look at what he did last week when Murray went down. He can throw it well and with Gurley back close to 100%, the play action will work. GT will stack the box to limit Gurley and make Mason beat them with his arm. I think UGA will come out throwing and we will see early. This offense today will be basically the offense for next year, minus the TE and one OL, I think they want to get a jumpstart, they will be motivated.
Georgia wins, maybe closer than last year, but still by 2+ TDs.

Georgia's season is a disappointment. Murray just went down, and the seniors had their day last week... and now the defense has to focus again on a bunch of triple option plays all day? Nah, they don't want to do that.
Ga Tech wants this game badly & they're at home. 2 reasons why Tech wins the game.
