After their very unimpressive Week 2 performance, the college football week 3 betting spread favors the 16th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs over a Missouri Tigers team that looked phenomenal in their last contest.

Bet The Georgia Bulldogs at -7 Because…
Georgia squeaked past tiny Nicholls State last week in their narrow 26-24 Week 2 win though they never came close to covering the college football betting line as an insane 52.5-point home favorite.
Quarterback Jacob Eason completed 11 of 20 passes for 204 yards with one touchdown and one interception while running back Nick Chubb rushed 20 times for 80 yards and one score.
The Georgia offense is averaging 29.5 points and 423.5 yards per game and Chubb has returned to his Heisman Trophy candidate form by rushing for 302 yards and three touchdowns so far. Defensively, the Bulldogs are allowing 24 points and 275.5 yards per game.
Bet The Missouri Tigers at +7 Because…
Missouri (1-1) bounced back from their season opening loss at West Virginia by rolling all over Eastern Michigan in their 61-21 Week 2 win. Quarterback Drew Lock completed 24 of 37 passes for 450 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Tigers to victory. Missouri is averaging 36 points and 554.5 yards per game. Defensively, Missouri defense is allowing 23.5 points and 461 yards per game.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
I know Georgia has gone 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall while Missouri has gone 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last four conference games.
Still, I like the Tigers to at least cover the spread in this matchup and believe the 34 percent of public bettors that also like the Tigers are right on the mark!
Georgia wins, but Missouri covers the college football betting spread.
