I really like these Georgia Bulldogs are a sleeper in the SEC, and getting free points with them is always worth a look. However, the Missouri Tigers continue to prove people wrong with balance play and will be eager to get a bounce back victory after having that Florida game ripped from their hands. Missouri likely has been chopping at the bit to get back on the court in hopes of getting that nasty taste out of its mouth. Motivated teams at home are hard to bet against. I'll lay the reasonable line with the Tigers.
