Auburn has 67% chance to beat Georgia on Wednesday

The No. 20 Auburn Tigers hit the road for the first time in conference play this Wednesday when they visit the Georgia Bulldogs for a 5:30 p.m. CT tipoff at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens.

Auburn opened the SEC slate last Wednesday by defeating Florida at Neville Arena, 61-58. It was a back-and-forth affair, but the efforts of Johni Broome  and Wendell Green Jr. helped Auburn pull away in the final 90 seconds to earn the win. The duo scored 14 points each and would score the game’s final four points.

As for Georgia, they enter the game with a 10-3 record under first-year head coach Mike White, who spent the previous seven seasons as the head coach at Florida.

Georgia has improved 13 games into the Mike White era, but ESPN still sides with Auburn in this game despite the Bulldogs hosting. According to ESPN’s matchup predictor, Auburn has a 66.6% chance to defeat Georgia on Wednesday.

Oddsmakers see the game going Auburn’s way as well. BetMGM shows the Tigers as 7.5-point favorites in the game according to the point spread and has placed the over-under at 136.5.
