Georgia-Kentucky Series Prediction

D1Baseball has Georgia as rated the second-best team in the country. I do think Georgia will finish in the upper cusp of the SEC, however, the Bulldogs might be a little overrated by D1. That said, Georgia should win this series with Kentucky.

Georgia 2 wins, Kentucky 1 win
