Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Bulldogs are 14-point favorites to beat the Tigers. The total, meanwhile, sits at 64.5 points. As of this writing, 72% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Bulldogs.
Georgia coach Kirby Smart has a lot of respect for Missouri quarterback Drew Lock, who faces the No. 2 Bulldogs on Saturday. "I don't know how his arm can get any stronger. He can make every throw. ... He has the fastest release I've ever seen. He gets the ball out so quick."
"More than anything, (we) mentally stayed on track to line up and play the next snap," Missouri coach Barry Odom said following the Tigers’ win over Purdue in Week 3. "That's something we've focused on over and over and over. No matter how good or bad the last snap is, refocus and let's get on to the next one."
The under is 8-1 in the Bulldogs’ last nine games played in the month of September.
The over is 3-1-1 in the Tigers’ last five games overall and 5-2 in their last seven conference games.
While Georgia can shut down most offenses in the nation, Missouri is the perfect cocktail for over bettors. Led by senior quarterback Drew Lock, the Tigers have an excellent offense, capable of scoring 40-points a week depending on the matchup. But their defense is a mess and Odom seemingly has no clue on how to fix it following the win over Purdue. Boilermakers QB David Blough set a school and Big Ten record last week by throwing for 572 yards. What is Jake Fromm going to do against Odom’s defense on Saturday? I’m taking the over in what should be a shootout.
