For the game itself, Tennessee Football is a 10-point underdog to the Georgia Bulldogs. We’ve already discussed at length what the Vols need to do to be able to win this game and if they even have a shot to make it close. However, what about the best gambling moves within the game? Here are the five best prop bets for the Vols against UGA.
Squirrel White TD
Joe Milton III is limited on wideouts he can get the ball to given the fact that Bru McCoy and Dont’e Thornton are both out. With injuries at running back too, the slot position will be crucial for long runs and the passing game, meaning a lot of targets to Squirrel White. Will those targets turn to yards? That’s up for debate, but it’ll likely result in at least one score.
Brock Bowers under 55.5 receiving yards
Last week, Brock Bowers dictated coverage and made a splash with a touchdown, but he’s still not fully healthy, and he had under 50 yards last week. As a result, it’s hard to see him going off on Tennessee Football, even with the issues the Vols have at linebacker. There’s even a chance he reinjures himself, so go with the under here.
Ladd McConkey over 65.5 receiving yards
Given the fact that Bowers is not likely to have as much of an impact, Georgia is going to target Ladd McConkey as much as possible. With Kamal Hadden out, that means McConkey, who is coming on strong, is going to go off. As a result, maybe an alternate bet of him going over 80 yards is worth it here, as he’ll be difficult to stop.
Carson Beck under 285.5 passing yards
If UT does beat Georgia, it’ll be because the Vols forced Carson Beck to have a horrible game. However, based on what happened in this game last year, if Georgia wins, then it’ll be because they dominated on the ground early and put the game out of reach. In neither scenario does Carson Beck go over 285.5 passing yards, so take the under.
Joe Milton over 22.5 rushing yards
Even last week, as Tennessee Football lost to the Missouri Tigers in a blowout, Joe Milton III managed to go over his total rushing yards. The Vols need him to keep the ball as much as possible to open up that Georgia defense, so he’ll easily go over this, especially with the injuries the Vols are dealing with at running back right now.
