1-Georgia Bulldogs at Missouri Tigers Final Betting Prediction
Missouri has no shot of upsetting the Georgia Bulldogs. But the trends suggest Mizzou keeps this closer than the spread.
For starters, Missouri is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 SEC games. What this tells us is that the Tigers are almost always in a good position for the backdoor cover.
Not only that, but when we look at the head-to-head trends, Georgia tends to get a massive lead and then coast to a win. The Bulldogs are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Mizzou won’t come close to challenging the Georgia Bulldogs. But 28 points is a lot. The most probable scenario is that Georgia goes up by 28 points and then Missouri scores a field goal or TD to bring the difference below the spread. Mizzou is the play.
