Missouri vs Georgia Prediction
SCORE PICK: Georgia 47, Missouri 30
Georgia has been the most dominant school in the country for some time now. The Kirby Smart-helmed squad heads into Week 10 of the season after an impressive 43-20 victory over Florida.
The Bulldogs finished with nearly 500 yards of total offense under the direction of Carson Beck. The junior quarterback completed 19 of 28 passes for 315 yards and two touchdowns. Both Daijun Edwards and Kendall Milton had solid games on the ground, combining for 150 yards and three touchdowns on 29 carries. They will again be key against Missouri, a school that has struggled to defend against the run on multiple occasions this season.
While a dominant running performance by LSU ultimately led to the Tigers’ lone loss this year, head coach Eliah Drinkwitz has guided his squad to a remarkable season overall. Missouri has had one of the strongest offenses in the nation, averaging 33.9 points per contest and scoring below 30 just once all year.
Unfortunately for the Tigers, they now face their toughest opponent of the season. Although Missouri can certainly put up points and keep things close for a while, Georgia’s dynamic offense will manage to pull away before it’s all said and done.
Georgia’s defense has been equally as impressive as its offense over the last few weeks, and the success should continue against Brady Cook and the Tigers’ offense. The junior quarterback has had a strong season thus far, but he has also made crucial mistakes at times.
Missouri vs Georgia Best Bets
Georgia -15 (-110)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 2 units
A 15-point spread doesn’t seem as daunting when you’re Georgia.
No matter how big of a favorite the Bulldogs are, they seemingly always have a chance to cover due to their talent-filled roster. They’ll be able to control this game by winning the battles at the line of scrimmage.
If the Georgia defensive line can continue to be as dominant as it’s been all season, Missouri won’t be able to rely on its run game the way it likes to. Making the Tigers one-dimensional and forcing them to pass should help secure the cover here.
Over 54.5 (-110)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit
This week’s matchup between two SEC powerhouses is certain to see both teams score in bunches.
While Georgia will ultimately walk away with a victory, Missouri is no slouch and should be able to find the end zone several times.
We’ll be relying on Georgia to score the bulk of the points to still cover the spread, but Missouri figures to tack on its fair share and help hit the over.

Missouri vs Georgia SGP (+1700)
DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 units
- Georgia -15 (-110)
- Georgia Over 37.5 (+124)
- Missouri Over 24.5 (+220)
We will be banking on an offensive masterclass from both teams for our Missouri vs Georgia Same Game Parlay.
We’ve previously touched on how the Bulldogs should find a way to cover the steep 15-point spread. Smart’s offense has been rolling this season, and last week’s dominant win over Florida is a perfect example of the versatility it has.
For this SGP to hit, the Bulldogs must score over 37 points – a feat they’ve accomplished five times this season. They’ve averaged just under 44 points per game in their last three contests, and that trend should continue here against a defense that has given up some big numbers in the past.
Finally, we’ll need the Tigers to put up 25 points against one of the best defenses in the country. Missouri has scored under 25 points just once this season and is averaging 37 in its last three. The biggest worry, of course, is getting stymied by a stout defense on the road.
While this SGP is certainly a longshot, the data suggests it’s within the realm of possibilities. If both offenses have big days, this three-leg parlay can cash at a handsome price.
