A warning about those betting lines circulated that have Georgia favored in all but one game for this coming season.
The Bulldogs were favored in every game by the same Golden Nugget lines last summer and finished with an 8-5 overall record.
In case you missed it, here are the lines this time around:
vs. Clemson -9
at South Carolina +3
vs. Tennessee -17
vs. Vanderbilt -24
at Missouri -7
at Arkansas (in Little Rock) -14 ½
vs. Florida in Jacksonville -9
vs. Auburn -1
vs. Georgia Tech -14
That Missouri number seems a little dicey. Yes, Georgia won by 21 points in Columbia two years ago, but it certainly didn’t feel like it. Remember, the Bulldogs were down eight in the third quarter. And there was that Tigers’ win last year between the hedges.
And about that Cocktail Party game giving nine points. Yes, Georgia has won three straight, but they’ve been by four, eight and three points. Those two touchdown spreads against Arkansas and Georgia Tech seem safer.
Dean Legge of DawgPost reported Friday night that the sister of five-star UGA athlete commitment Terry Godwin has committed to joining the women’s basketball team.
Terryuana Godwin averaged 4.5 points per game and 3.1 rebounds per game at Butler Community College in Kansas. The point guard played at LaGrange High School.
Andy Landers has room to add Godwin. The team has 14 players on scholarship. The limit is 15.
Terry Godwin has visited Auburn and Alabama but his sister’s decision to come to Georgia seems to have firmed up a commitment from earlier this year.
“We are a close-knit family,” mother Olivia Godwin told Dean. “We were all smiles (Friday) at Georgia.”
Georgia offensive lineman Kolton Houston gave Bulldogs fans reason to worry with his tweet late Friday night: “Im sorry dawg nation. Im hanging the cleats up. My football career is temporarily over. I am now focusing on being a Navy Seal #BUDs”
Houston was just having fun with the fan base. It turned out players got in some military-style workouts over the weekend.
Walk-on tight end Jack Loonam tweeted: “Thankful for the Marine & Army Special Operations guys who trained our team the last 24 hours, opened alota guys eyes for the best #Volition”
Cornerback Sheldon Dawson posted on his Twitter feed: “Been training with the Navy Seals for the past days and I must say that I Am a Leader and will be Mentally and Physically ready!”
