Missouri Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs Betting Pick

In this highly anticipated college football showdown, the 14th-ranked Missouri Tigers are set to clash with the top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs in Athens this coming Saturday. It promises to be a highlight of the week 10 college football lineup.

Missouri boasts an impressive 7-1 record, securing the second position in the competitive SEC West division. The Tigers’ sole defeat this season came at the hands of the LSU Tigers. While Missouri had a bye week recently, their last performance saw them triumph over South Carolina with a convincing score of 34-12.

On the other side of the field, the Georgia Bulldogs stand tall as one of the select five unbeaten teams leading the College Football rankings with a flawless 8-0 record. Their latest victory came as they vanquished Florida 43-20 on the road.

With Georgia’s dominance, it’s no surprise that they are heavily favored to win this encounter, with a substantial -16.5-point advantage while the total points expected for the game is set at 56.5.

Missouri Tigers’ Impressive and Surprising 2023 Season

The Missouri Tigers find themselves just a play or two away from a perfect 8-0 record, placing them firmly in the nation’s Top 10. Remarkably, they still have a chance to contend for the SEC title game, contingent on a victory here. The Tigers boast one of the most potent offenses in the country, accumulating over 450 yards per game. Their offensive strategy primarily leans on the passing game, churning out an average of 294 passing yards per contest, although their rushing attack is more than capable when called upon.

Collectively, Missouri averages nearly 34 points per game. Quarterback Brady Cook has exhibited continuous improvement throughout the season, amassing almost 2,300 passing yards and 15 touchdowns while throwing a mere three interceptions. His standout targets this season are Luther Burden, who is tantalizingly close to a 1,000-yard receiving season, and

Theo Wease, who boasts 36 receptions on the year. Running back Cody Schrader had a stellar performance against South Carolina, accumulating 159 yards and two touchdowns.

No Bowers for the Bulldogs Means Someone will Need to Step Up

The Georgia Bulldogs, known for their high-flying offense this season, suffered a significant blow with the injury to their star tight end, Brock Bowers. Bowers sustained an ankle injury during the Vanderbilt game, requiring surgery and likely sidelining him until mid-December. Bowers had already amassed an impressive 41 receptions for 567 yards and four touchdowns.

This unfortunate setback has paved the way for more playing time for Dominic Lovett, who initially began his college career with Missouri. In Georgia’s recent victory over Florida, Lovett made his presence known with four receptions for 83 yards. Overall, Lovett has accrued 365 receiving yards.

Quarterback Carson Beck has assumed the starting role, completing 73% of his passes, accompanied by 14 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. The Bulldogs’ ground game is anchored by Daijun Edwards, who contributed two crucial touchdowns in the win against Florida.

Anticipated Thriller in Athens

This matchup promises to be a thrilling encounter. The Missouri Tigers possess a formidable offense that can both pass and run effectively, presenting a formidable challenge to the Georgia defense. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Tigers hold the lead late in the game. However, championship-caliber teams have a knack for finding a way to win, and that’s precisely what the Bulldogs are likely to do.

While Georgia should emerge victorious, it’s expected to be a closely contested battle, possibly culminating in a one-score game. Our betting pick for this game is to favor the Missouri Tigers with a +16.5 point spread over the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday.
