The de-facto SEC East title game will take place in Athens this afternoon as the No. 12 Missouri Tigers hit the road to battle the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs. This division showdown will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. ET and air on CBS.

Missouri (7-1, 3-1 SEC) is coming off its bye and is looking to pull off a huge upset that will propel it to the top of the SEC East standings. The Tigers were last seen whipping South Carolina in a 34-12 victory on October 21, a game where running back Cody Schrader broke off 159 yards and two touchdowns. Mizzou is seeking its first victory over UGA in a decade.

Georgia (8-0, 5-0 SEC) went down to Jacksonville and rolled rival Florida in a 43-20 rout last Saturday. The offense rolled even without the services of Brock Bowers as wide receiver Ladd McConkey went off with six receptions for 135 yards and a touchdown. The Dawgs were never in any real danger in this matchup as they entered the fourth quarter holding a 36-7 lead.

Our Best Bet for Missouri vs. Georgia

Georgia -15.5

This is the point in the season where you’d expect Georgia to fully rev up the machine for the postseason and we saw the two-time defending national champs barely break a sweat when burying Florida last Saturday. Even with Mizzou bringing a talented offense to Athens, I expect the Dawgs to have little issue putting the Tigers down this afternoon. Take UGA to cover and roll for homecoming.
