Traffic allocation reporting issue with URL re-direct experiment

I have an experiment that uses an original and one variation with a URL re-direct.

 

There is a significant difference in allocation as well as visitors/unique pageviews when looking at Optimizely data vs Google Analytics for the two URLs being used. Anyone have ideas on if the set up could be wrong or other explanations?

 

The visitors and traffic allocation for the past 7 days in Optimizely is shown below:

The visitors and traffic allocation for the past 7 days in Google Analytics is shown below:

@davecriswell - Shot in the dark here... I do not see a call to google-analytics.com on your test page.

 

https://www.rafflecopter.com/try-rafflecopter

contains:

https://www.google-analytics.com/collect?v=1&_v=j41&a=787760040&t=pageview&_s=1&dl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.rafflecopter.com%2Ftry-rafflecopter&dp=%2Ftry-rafflecopter&ul=en-us&de=UTF-8&dt=Run%20a%20Rafflecopter%20Giveaway%20%7C%20Rafflecopter%20%3A)&sd=24-bit&sr=1680x1050&vp=1218x312&je=0&fl=18.0%20r0&_u=SACAAEABI~&jid=&cid=761646234.1458678835&tid=UA-2050882-5&z=1626614217

 

But https://www.rafflecopter.com/try-rafflecopter-b does not contain any google-analytics.com request, but does contain this instead (which does not have a corresponding request on the control page):
