Georgia is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. Missouri is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games while the under is 7-0 in their last games against a team with a winning record. Georgia is 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I get why Georgia’s favored here as they’re the more nameworthy school, but Missouri’s already looked improved under Eli Drinkwitz, and this is a Tigers team that’s really played well at home this season. I just don’t like what I’m seeing from JT Daniels at QB for Georgia and the Tigers have a top-25 run defense to combat what Georgia’s bringing to the table. I’ll take a stab at Missouri and the points in this one.
