This is the first time Dawgs are double-digit fav. over UF since '92. Gators were double-digit favorites 9 times over UGA last 22 yrs.— Dean Legge (@Dawg_Post) October 27, 2014
That should provide some frame of reference (especially for some of you who are new to this series' history) for how this game has gone for Georgia. I've got a post coming on one particular Georgia blowout, but the battle on the St. John's is usually a close one.
Legge also points to something else of significance. Even though the series is skewed in Georgia's favor (and once was heavily skewed that direction), recent history has been all Gators. Until....2011, which began the current three game Dawgs win streak.
We really need to set our minds right y'all. I know, betting lines are set to encourage wagers. And this line had to be somewhat inflated to encourage bettors to have some faith in Will Muschamp's team. But we don't need a team or a fan base heading down to Jacksonville with too much bravado.
