This line is way too low and probably is a result of over reacting Aaron Murray's injury last week.  Mason is well-prepared and a very solid QB that has patiently waited his time.  Along with Gurley's return, the UGA offense has too many weapons for GT.  Look at what Clemson did to them a few weeks ago to see what a diversified offense does to their defense.  GT will score with their option but cannot keep pace with UGA, especially if they fall behind.  UGA dominates the history of this rivalry and is 11-1 under Mark Richt.  High confidence play for me.

UGA   -3     Five unit play        UGA    38       GT    20

I've seen your plays on covers - on that basis alone I have good cause to go the other way (even though your write ups are nice)... BUT bottom line here is motivation. 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.

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.

Nobody wants to be cut blocked all day and blow out a knee in a meaningless game

Kids are thinking about next year? What planet did you grow up on? Kids are barely thinking about right now... next year means nothing to them.

Sorry, but your post indicates you know nothing about big-time competitive athletes, these aren't dopers hanging out on a street corner.  They were motivated by the rivalry history which is why so many lines got blown up this year.  Otherwise you cannot explain Ohio and Michigan, or Ducks and Beavers, or Arky/LSU, etc.  My comment was to say this begins a new era at UGA with the new QB working with HIS guys for next year.  If you don't think that is important, then you are clueless why he twice did not transfer and chose to wait on the bench behind Murray and took a RS last season.  You bet your behind he and his receivers wanted to make a statement that it wasn't then end for the program.  Pre-season rankings are significant to make the Final 4 next year and this game gave them a chance to show there wouldn't be that much of a fall off.  After the 1st QTR and a half, it began to click in.  Take your shots at someone else, this wasn't a good weekend, I took too many favorites but my picks have been damned good for some time.  If you don't like them, ignore them or bet the other way.  It's all just opinions, and this weekend proved the old "any given Saturday" cliché to be true.  None of us know for sure.  Keep it real, and honest.

Georgia won and covered, barely. Very lucky. But not by 2 TDs like you predicted - by their teeth in overtime. Still, those student athletes (and kids in general) give a rats behind about anything other than what's happening "right now."

Give it a rest. Your comments about what you "think" I know - are lame. Make it personal and you're a dip$hit.

Yes, you got your behind kicked all over the place yesterday with your expert analysis. Nice write ups, though., I give you credit for that.

Dope.
