Georgia Bulldogs Injury Report vs. Florida Gators for Week 9:

Intrigue returns at the quarterback position for the Georgia Bulldogs as JT Daniels is fully cleared to play. Head coach Kirby Smart has not announced a starter for the Cocktail Party, but the expectation is that both Daniels and Stetson Bennett will see snaps under center.

The Dawgs will be without sensational sophomore running back Kendall Milton who is out with a knee sprain, but Kenny McIntosh will return to the lineup this week after missing the last two games with a hamstring issue.

At the receiver position, Jermaine Burton, Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint, and Arian Smith should all be a go. It will be nice to see Rosemy-Jacksaint back on the field in Jacksonville where he saw his 2020 season come to an end after suffering a broken leg following the first touchdown catch of his career.

Getting the speedy Smith back will give offensive coordinator Todd Monken and the Georgia quarterbacks an enticing option to stretch the field and keep the Gators defense honest against the run.

After suffering a shoulder injury in the Auburn game, safety Christopher Smith should return to action this week with no limitations.

Georgia Bulldogs vs. Florida Gators odds and betting pick for Week 9:

After an excruciatingly long two-week wait, the 100th edition of the World’s Largest Cocktail Party is finally here.

Georgia sewed up the first half of their schedule with a dominant win over previously undefeated Kentucky to enter the bye week unblemished at 7-0, the unanimous No. 1 team in the country, and the odds-on favorite to win the national title.

Meanwhile, Florida limped into the break following their third loss of the season, down by an LSU team that announced the following day that head coach Ed Orgeron would be relieved of his duties at the conclusion of the season. They also seem to be battling internal strife, with quarterback Anthony Richardson giving a non-commital response when asked if he was interested in transferring.

Everything would seem to be leaning in the Bulldogs favor, but this rivalry always seems to zig when everyone else expects it to zag.

Georgia enters the Cocktail Party matchup with the hated Gators as a 14.5 point favorite according to the latest odds from WynnBET. WynnBET currently lists Georgia at -105 (bet $105 to win $100) and Florida at -115 (bet $115 to win $100).

If you like betting totals, WynnBET currently lists the over/under for Dawgs-Gators at 51.0 points. There are also currently even odds on the total, with both the over and the under sitting at -110 (bet $110 to win $100).

Florida’s success in this game depends on their ability to run the football and sustain drives against a historically good Dawgs defense. Neither of their quarterbacks, Emory Jones or Anthony Richardson, has shown the ability to carry the Gators offense with their arm.

Like Kentucky and Arkansas before them, that’s a dangerous proposition for the Gators. No one on Georgia’s schedule has been able to overcome the ferocity of the Dawgs front seven and find success on the ground.

Kentucky running back Chris Rodriguez entered the Wildcats matchup with the Bulldogs as the leading rusher in the Southeastern Conference. Against Georgia, he rushed for seven yards. Seven.

Although the Dawgs defense garners most of the attention of analysts and fans across college football, the offense has more than held its own.

With either JT Daniels or Stetson Bennett lined up under center, Georgia and offensive coordinator Todd Monken have exhibited a propensity to shapeshift according to what the opposing defense is giving them.

Against Arkansas and Kentucky, that meant controlling the line of scrimmage and running the football. On the Plains against Auburn, that meant stretching the field with deep shots to loosen up the defense and create holes late in the game for Zamir White, Kendall Milton, and James Cook to exploit for clock-churning runs.

Tood Grantham and his much maligned Gators defense is coming off of its worst performance of the season, allowing 49 points to an LSU offense that hadn’t score 30 points against a Power 5 opponent all season.

Rivalry game aside, this is a matchup that favors Georgia in all three phases. Florida will not be able to run the football and when pressed to throw, the Gators quarterback tandem of Jones and Richardson will be hurried often, prompting ill-advised throws that lead to multiple Dawgs defenders donning the Savage pads following turnovers.

Georgia’s offense will come off of the bye week composed and prepared, getting into a rhythm early and finding consistent success against a Gators defense that has more holes than a golf course. The Dawgs should not only cover the two touchdown spread, but should also score enough points to keep the over squarely in play. Take both and the Dawgs to win straight up to hit the trifecta and cash a nice pre-Halloween parlay.
