So with those two teams and quarterbacks at it again, expect millions to be tuning in to CBS for the 2018 SEC Championship Game at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday. The top-ranked Crimson Tide are 11.5-point favorites with a total of 64 in the latest Alabama vs. Georgia odds.

So before making any Alabama vs. Georgia picks, be sure to check out the projections from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
The advanced computer simulates every FBS game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors.
The model made some huge calls during Rivalry Week, including nailing Ohio State’s outright upset of Michigan as a 4.5-point underdog. And when it comes to all top-rated picks, the model has been red-hot, entering Championship Week on a blistering 43-23 run. Anybody who has followed it is way, way up.
Now, it has simulated every possible play for Alabama vs. Georgia (stream live on fuboTV) 10,000 times. We can tell you it is leaning toward the under, but it has a strong against the spread pick, saying one side hits in 65 percent of simulations. You absolutely need to see it before locking in your own picks.
One of the big advantages that Alabama will have at the 2018 SEC Championship Game is big-play ability.
With Tagovailoa averaging nearly 12 yards per pass attempt and the Alabama offense averaging an insane 8.0 yards per play, Alabama offensive coordinator Mike Locksley has shown no fear in his play-calling. The Crimson Tide rank fourth in the nation with 20-yard touchdowns or longer on over 17 percent of their possessions this season.
Georgia hasn’t seen an offense of Alabama’s nature all season and you can bet that Locksley and Tagovailoa will have some big shots scripted early. If Alabama can strike, it could be a long night for the Bulldogs.
But just because the Crimson Tide can pile up points in a hurry, doesn’t mean they’ll cover this double-digit spread against the Bulldogs in the 2018 SEC Championship.
No. 4 Georgia has held opponents to 200 passing yards or less in eight of its 12 games this season. And the Bulldogs also have plenty of power of their own on offense.
After the loss to LSU, the Bulldogs rededicated themselves to running the football with authority, and they’ve been doing so ever since. During its current five-game winning streak, Georgia is averaging well over 300 yards rushing per game and is gaining seven yards per carry. And Alabama’s defense has given up 405 yards rushing and three touchdowns the last two weeks.
So, which side of Alabama vs. Georgia hits against the spread in 65 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see the strong pick for the SEC Championship Game, all from the model that has returned over $4,000 in profit for $100 bettors, and find out.
