Ranked favorites went 14-1 straight up last week, but will this upcoming weekend be when the dogs 🐶 run wild?
Two underdogs in particular have gotten strong action to cover against top-10 foes in Week 6. Let’s check out the latest action for each, as well as bring in football trader Jake Fisher to help explain the reasoning behind these two public dogs.
Kentucky at Georgia (-14.5)
Spread Action: Kentucky 78.8% tickets, 96.3% handle
Ask the Trader: Georgia head coach Kirby Smart told the media this week that every SEC team should be ranked—perhaps trying to cover up how much his team struggled with South Carolina and Auburn 😬. Kentucky dominated Florida in Week 5, and Georgia QB Carson Beck is going to have to play much better with Kentucky having a top-20 run defense.
Maryland at Ohio State (-20)
Spread Action: Maryland 71.2% tickets, 73.6% handle
Ask the Trader: Maryland has featured a top-15 offense this season, averaging 39 PPG with the Big Ten’s leading passer in Taulia Tagovailoa. The banged-up Buckeyes just had a bye week to recover from Notre Dame, but Marvin Harrison Jr. is still nursing an ankle sprain. Asking Ohio State to win by 3+ TDs feels like a tall task against a scrappy Terrapins squad.
