My Pick: Georgia -20.5
I see nothing in Vanderbilt that says I am going to keep this game close. I like Georgia to blow them out in this game and win by at least four touchdowns. Vanderbilt has a decent defense but Georgia can throw the ball as well as run it. I am not a huge fan of giving this many points on the road but I think it’s the only play here.
