College Football Predictions: Georgia Picked Over Missouri By ESPN

The odds makers have the Missouri Tigers listed as three point, home underdogs when they play the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday night and Vegas isn't alone in picking against Missouri in their SEC opener. ESPN's Edward Aschoff and Chris Low both picked the Tigers to fall to the Bulldogs in a close game to open conference play.

Those predictions came out before a report came out that Georgia would be without four starters on defense against a Tiger team that ranked 12th in the nation in total offense last year. Free safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Alec Ogletree will both miss Saturday's game after reportedly failing drug tests earlier in the week.

Low acknowledged the big play potential of the Tigers' offense but both he and Aschoff cited Georgia's defensive front as the difference in the game.
