Georgia football is coming off another sloppy game where the Dawgs outlasted Missouri 26-22. The Dawgs got a slap in the face from the Tigers, but hopefully, it came at the right time because it only gets harder from here.
Thankfully this next game is at home, where the Dawgs will take on Auburn at 3:30 p.m. It isn’t a night game like so many of the fans wanted, but it’s a late enough kick to get the libations flowing and that crowd loud.
This week is a big one for the Dawgs because it is a make-or-break moment in the season. There is no room for mistakes anymore. Georgia cannot continue to shoot itself in the foot and expect to win. The Dawgs have to exert their dominance and find themselves again.
It’s Week 6, and the Dawgs cannot continue to play like they have been the past two weeks, or it will come back and bite them.

The Dawgs come into this next game as 29.5-point favorites over Auburn on FanDuel. The spread line has Georgia and Auburn at -110. So if you bet $100 on the spread in Georgia or Auburn’s favor, you’d win $90.91.

Georgia Football vs. Auburn Tigers prediction for Week 6:
At this point, the Dawgs and the betting odds are at a standstill. Georgia hasn’t covered the spread in a while, and this 29.5-point one for the Auburn game seems even more daunting. The way that Georgia has played the last two weeks doesn’t give us confidence in betting on them to cover the spread.
However, the money line and over/under seems to be the smarter bets this week. The Dawgs and Tigers should score more than 49.5 points total — the keyword is should.
Heck, the sloppy game against Missouri could be the final wake-up call that Georgia needs, and it could come out red-hot. However, at this point, it’s up in the air what team will show up between the hedges on Saturday.
If that Georgia team that beat the breaks off Oregon shows up, lay the hammer on the spread, but if not, go with the safer bet. Or you could say that Georgia doesn’t cover the spread and win a lot of money that way. Now that could be the best bet of the weekend.
Georgia football should see win No. 6 against Auburn, but it may be another dog fight to the finish if the sloppiness continues. The Dawgs don’t like looking bad, and this game against one of their biggest rivals should fire them up to put the fans at ease.
