The Bulldogs are 36-15 ATS in their last 51 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games. The Tigers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The under is 5-0-1 in Bulldogs last 6 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Tigers last 7 games overall. The Bulldogs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The Missouri Tigers could either be motivated and confident after last week’s result against Auburn, or they could be depressed and setup for a letdown. The first few minutes should give you an idea of what to expect. With that said, Missouri hasn’t been great on offense this season and things aren’t going to change against this Georgia defense. There’s just a talent gap between these teams, and last year’s 43-6 victory for the Bulldogs is probably a similar result here. Missouri will have issues putting points on the board. I’ll lay the points.
