The Georgia Bulldogs will look to continue their school-record 21-game winning streak as they head on the road to visit the Auburn Tigers on Saturday.

Georgia has yet to be seriously challenged this season, though the South Carolina Gamecocks did keep it close for a while in a 24-14 contest a couple of weeks ago. The Bulldogs are now two-touchdown favorites over Auburn according to the latest college football odds.

The Tigers are coming off of a tough loss on the road against the Texas A&M Aggies and will face even stiffer opposition against the Bulldogs. We’ll look at whether they can stay in the game in our free college football picks for Georgia vs. Auburn on September 30.

Georgia vs Auburn picks and predictions

For years, the college football world revolved around the Alabama Crimson Tide. Now, we’ve seemingly entered the next era of the sport, where the new question is whether or not you can beat Georgia.

Usually, the answer is no. The Bulldogs haven’t lost a game since 2021, when Alabama got them in the SEC Championship Game before Georgia found revenge in the National Championship. Few of these games are even close, as the Bulldogs have won by an average of 30.3 points per game this season.

That said, we can never take things for granted in the SEC, and that brings us to Saturday’s matchup. Auburn comes into this game with a solid 3-1 record, though the loss last weekend to Texas A&M raised serious questions over how high this team’s ceiling can be this year.

The Tigers failed to score a touchdown on offense against the Aggies, with both Payton Thorne and Robby Ashford getting time but being largely ineffective in the matchup. While Thorne will probably get the start on Saturday, it’s hard to imagine he’ll find much more success against a Georgia defense that has allowed just 11.3 points per game so far this season.

Auburn also has to deal with injuries on its defense, particularly in the secondary. Safety Zion Puckett left the Texas A&M game with a shoulder injury, while nickelback Keionte Scott is out indefinitely. Other reserve options have been dealing with their own nagging issues, forcing the Tigers to look deep on the depth chart.

That’s going to be a problem against Georgia quarterback Carson Beck, who is coming off perhaps his best career performance against the UAB Blazers last week. He has a number of targets that would be nightmares for a healthy Auburn to deal with, including tight end Brock Bowers. 

The Georgia offense should run (and throw) all over the Tigers on Saturday, and it’s hard to see Auburn putting up much in the way of a response. Even if the Bulldogs can’t outright embarrass Auburn, they should score several times, and they might come close to pitching a shutout against the Tigers, at least until garbage time. Georgia should win this game easily, and have little trouble covering the rather reasonable spread on Saturday.

My best bet: Georgia -14 (-110 at Caesars)

Georgia vs Auburn same-game parlay

Georgia -14

Georgia -7.5 1H

Auburn Under 14.5 Team Total

I expect Georgia to dominate on both sides of the ball, and that’s reflected in my same-game parlay for this matchup. That starts with picking the Bulldogs to cover the two-touchdown spread, a number they should be able to exceed comfortably.

Georgia should be able to exert its dominance in the first half, jumping on an injured Auburn secondary right out of the gate. With that in mind, I’m taking the Bulldogs to cover the first-half spread of -7.5 points, as I’m not worried about this being a one-score game at the half. 

Finally, let’s round out this SGP by taking Auburn to score Under 14.5 points in the game. This Tigers offense struggled to produce anything against Texas A&M, and while they may turn it around down the line, it’s not going to happen against Georgia on Saturday.

Georgia vs Auburn spread and Over/Under analysis

Georgia opened Saturday’s contest as a 16.5-point favorite. That number quickly came down, and you can now find Georgia -14 at most books. Some sites are still offering -110 on Auburn at +14.5, however, which is the line to take if you want to back the home team.

For all of Georgia’s dominance this year, the Bulldogs are only 1-3 against the spread so far. However, Auburn hasn’t been any better, with the Tigers also putting up a 1-3 ATS mark this season.

Georgia would have significant advantages in all phases of the game even if both teams were fully healthy. With the issues in the Auburn secondary, I don’t think this game is even close. I’m happy we don’t have to give up an extra half-point, but even if we did, I think Georgia would be the clear choice on the spread.

The total for this game opened at 47 points, but has since fallen to just 45.5 at most sites. You can find a slight lean towards the Under at some books, with -106 available on the Over if you shop around.

Both teams have played largely below the number this year. The Under holds a 3-1 edge for both the Bulldogs and the Tigers so far on the season, though Georgia did hit its first Over of the year last weekend.

While Auburn probably won’t score much against the Bulldogs, Georgia has given up at least 14 points in each of its last two games, and it’s possible that the Tigers wake up a bit after last weekend’s debacle. Meanwhile, I see no reason why Georgia won’t be able to put up points in this matchup against a defense that would struggle to contain the Bulldogs even if healthy. I’m leaning towards the Over.
