Our Selection : The Bulldogs are/were many punters’ choice to win the BCS. They played adequately in their narrow road loss to Clemson last week; out-yarding the Tigers by 78 yards. It won’t be easy on Saturday versus the Gamecocks, but look for the Bulldogs to be the motivated home team playing their first game in front of their fans this season. We’ll take Georgia minus the field goal and a hook. Take the Bulldogs -3.5 at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
