Why no betting lines on UF UGA game?

Postby Ga Gator » Sun Oct 23, 2011 8:36 pm

As of 8:30 Eastern time there are no lines on this weeks game while there is for most other contests. Do you suppose the reason in the unknown situation of Johnny B?

Most lines come out early Monday. This one, however, may be OTB for the first part of the week due to the unknowns.

Pretty big swing in odds if Brantley plays or not. I imagine if he's declared out, then the line is UGA -7 or more. If he's playing, then it probably drops to -1 or pick'em.

There is no betting line because UGA never wins, so what's there to bet on :razz:

This is a reputable place. I copied the game detail below. I don't think it's anything secret. I just walk in and get them. Bodog, which IS more secretive, was similar.

Gators vs Bulldogs Spread, Line and Betting Odds:
Spread:

Florida Gators +2.5
@ Georgia Bulldogs -2.5

Game Total:

Over (-110)
47.5
Under (-110)

Not sure how to read betting odds? Check out our Sports Betting Odds Explained article to learn how.

Gators vs Bulldogs Predictions for Week 9:
Game Total (TOP PLAY) – The Gators offense has been hindered the last two weeks, which comes as a shock as this team possess 4 out of the top 10 offensive recruits from the recruiting class of two years ago. Florida can score and I expect their offense to break out of their ‘funk’ this week against an untested Georgia secondary. This game will be played on neutral ground (although it will be in the State of Florida) so overwhelming crowd noise will not hinder both teams. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Florida’s last 6 games, while the total has gone OVER in 4 of Georgia’s last 6 games. Also, the total has gone OVER in 4 of Georgia’s last 6 games when playing Florida. I recommend taking a look at the OVER in this SEC battle of the unranked.

Top Play Prediction = OVER 47.5 Total Points

Spread Prediction – Forget about the Gators recent struggles and the fact that they are no longer ranked among the nations top 25, this is a good football team. UGA and Florida are meeting at a weird crossroad. This is the first time in almost 30 years both teams have entered the game unranked. UGA has won their last three games; Florida has lost their last three games. Georgia’s Head Coach was on the “hot seat”; now UF’s Head Coach is getting warmer by the week. Both teams need to win in order to stay alive in the wacky SEC Eastern Division race. If Florida wins, it allows them to continue to control their own destiny to get to Atlanta and will silence the gator growls coming from Gainesville. Georgia is 4-8 ATS in its last 12 games when playing Florida and have lost 10 of their last 12 against Florida straight up. If UGA wins this game, then I will climb aboard the Bad Wagon Express and hope for an SEC title game. Outcome may rely on the fact that Florida wants to win this game; whereas Georgia needs to win this game. Florida is 21-4 SU in its last 25 games and I do not expect this number to continue to falter this week. We will consider the Gators clawing there way back into the SEC ranks with a win over the Bulldogs Saturday afternoon. Cheers!

Prediction = Florida +2.5

The only line I could find on vegasinsider was something called "V.I. Consensus". I guess that stands for "Vegas Insider Consensus"? So even though none of the Vegas sports books (Vegas Hilton, MGM, etc.) have a line, is that the consensus of a bunch of their betting gurus?

In any case, in that column on the page, we are -1.5 on a neutral field. I wonder if that's taking into account the return of Brantley and Demps, the level of competition to this point (we've played what I call #1A and #1B from the SEC West and they've played the two piss poor Pississippis), and/or the history of their futility in 18 of the last 21 years, and the last 3 in a row?

I don't know. But I do know that here's the page:
