MEET UP WITH DAWG POST FRIDAY FROM 4-7 PM BEFORE THE AUBURN GAME AT PALOMA PARK FOR HAPPY HOUR AND TO TALK ABOUT THE DAWGS.

The Georgia Bulldogs opened as a massive 27.5-point favorite according to FanDuel over old rival Auburn Sunday. It is another monster line betters will have to consider the Bulldogs’ health as the ponder the outcome of this game. 

In addition, Auburn and coach Bryan Harsin’s appear to have a fractured relationship that isn’t capable of being repaired. Georgia is coming off a tough 26-22 road win at Missouri. The Bulldogs closed as a more than four-touchdown favorite against those Tigers. Georgia trailed the entire game until the final four minutes of the game.
