Point Spread: Kentucky vs. Georgia, West Virginia vs. Cincinnati

College football Week 12 point spread and odds preview of the games Kentucky vs. Georgia and West Virginia vs. Cincinnati.

Point Spread: Kentucky vs. Georgia, West Virginia vs. Cincinnati On Saturday the No.22 Kentucky Wildcats (7-3) will visit the No.8 Georgia Bulldogs (8-2) to try and repeat the victory from last year. But the odds makers aren't quite confident the Wildcats will be able to beat the Bulldogs and at Bodog Sports the point spread on the Kentucky vs. Georgia game is currently favoring the Bulldogs -7.5 points. Although Kentucky beat Georgia 24-20 last year, the Wildcats haven't won a game when visiting the Bulldogs in over 30 years. Kentucky is 6-3 against the spread in its last 9 games, but Georgia is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing Kentucky.

 A win is a must for the Georgia Bulldogs in order to continue their lead in the SEC East standings, with Tennessee breathing down their neck and scheduled for an easy game against the last Vanderbilt this Saturday. Kentucky, on the other side, are still in the SEC race and will not give up without a fight. The Wildcats lead on the Bulldogs in total offense with 449.3 yards, compared to 393.2 yards per game by Georgia, as well as point scored at 37.7 to 32.8 per game. Kentucky running backs Tony Dixon and Rafael Little are questionable for the Week 12 match-up and the defensively stronger Georgia could cover the -7.5 point spread. At Bookmaker Kentucky is listed with underdog odds +255 and the Bulldogs are favorite with betting odds -305.

 Another top-tier college football game is the match-up between No.5 West Virginia (8-1) and No.21 Cincinnati (8-2). Smaller betting numbers on this game, at Bodog Sports the point spread for the West Virginia vs. Cincinnati game is currently sitting at -6.5 points chalk the Mountaineers, considering the last time these two teams met, West Virginia won by 18 points 42-24. The small spread could be explained with the better performance shown this season by the Bearcats and the West Virginia wide receiver Will Johnson and line backer Archie Sims remain questionable, while Cincinnati has no injuries to report so far this week.

 The two college football teams match-up well statistically, the Mountaineers edging Cincinnati in total defense, allowing only 291.8 yards per game, compared to the Bearcats at 372 yards on average allowed. But West Virginia and Cincinnati are allowing 16.7 and 16.4 points respectively, placing them 3rd and 2nd in the Big East. The posted point spread is anyone's game, as both Cincinnati and West Virginia are chasing the top spot in the conference. At Bookmaker the odds also favor West Virginia at -255 and Cincinnati is underdog with betting odds +215.
