The Georgia Bulldogs need a big victory here in order to snap back-to-back losses. Greyson Lambert is completing 62.1 percent of his passes for 1,098 yards, nine touchdowns and one interception. Lambert has four touchdown passes in his last three games. Malcolm Mitchell and Reggie Davis have combined for 637 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Terry Godwin has 11 receptions. The Georgia Bulldogs ground game is averaging 231.5 yards per contest, and Sony Michel leads the way with 421 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Georgia is allowing 21.7 points and 331.8 yards per game. Tim Kimbrough leads the Bulldogs with 44 tackles, Jordan Jenkins has three sacks and Dominick Sanders has two interceptions. Isaiah McKenzie, Jayson Stanley and Reggie Wilkerson are questionable.
The Tigers are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
This is too many points for me to lay in this matchup. Missouri has one of the better defenses in the SEC and a quarterback in Lock who has great potential and can make all of the throws. Also, Georgia just lost the heart and soul of its offense in Nick Chubb.
Give me the Missouri Tigers and the points, as I think this game comes down to the fourth quarter.
