Weekend Reflections: Georgia is being underestimated against LSU

What I think about some things I saw over the weekend . . .

Las Vegas sportsbooks on Sunday morning had LSU as a consensus four-point favorite against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. The line was LSU -7 by the afternoon, before settling at LSU -6½ late Saturday night. No doubt, the Tigers (12-0) are worthy favorites.

They have their best-ever offense. Their quarterback, Joe Burrow, is a Heisman Trophy candidate. Those things have been more than enough to make up for LSU’s uncharacteristically vulnerable defense.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs (11-1) are elite defensively but their offense is uninspiring.
