NCAA Football: North Texas at Missouri Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

We’re getting close to bad season BINGO here with the starting quarterback being ruled out for the game today, but considering Mizzou fans have been wanting to see the backups get a shot for weeks it seems more like a good thing.

The issue of course being throwing Brady Cook and/or Tyler Macon into the fire against one of the best defenses in the last 15-20 years. But that’s neither here nor there. Gotta show up to the game, play the snaps, and see what happens.

Missouri s a 39.5 point dog in this game. They haven’t beaten Georgia in 9 years. Georgia is the number one team in the country, with a good offense and an elite defense. This... may not be very fun for Missouri fans.

Missouri-Georgia football: Betting odds, predictions

As of Friday evening, Missouri is a 39.5-point underdog to Georgia, according to DraftKing’s Sportsbook. The total points (over/under) is 59.5.

Josh Matejka: Can they cover? There’s no doubt in my mind. If the Bulldogs wanted to — and this sounds like hyperbole, but I promise it’s not — the Bulldogs could decide the exact score they wanted to hit, reach it before the first half and then keep that same score through the rest of the second half.

However, Kirby Smart doesn’t seem like that much of a cut throat, especially when he has far bigger things to play for in the coming weeks. I can see the Dawgs cruising to a three touchdown lead and maintaining that pace for the rest of the game by pulling their starters. I can’t honestly see them wanting to run the game to several more scores... unless they’re really that hurt about the Luther Burden hat toss.

Aaron Dryden: I don’t know how I can accurately guess if they will or won’t until a QB has been named. Until then, I’ll say no. They haven’t covered once, and they’re playing the best team in America... on the road. There’s nothing to suggest that this team can cover against bad teams, let alone good ones. The only way Missouri covers is if Georgia sleepwalks through the whole game, and even that may not be enough.

Parker Gillam: Honestly, I think Missouri covers. Georgia will be going roughly 60% starting in the second half, and they may have a 28-35 point lead built up by then. With Tyler Badie, there is always potential for some explosive plays for the Mizzou offense, and I think he’ll break at least a couple chunk plays that allow this team to make it under that 38 mark. Probably something around 45-17 in favor of Georgia, second half is sluggish and Missouri gets a couple of garbage time points.

Josh’s point about the Luther Burden hat toss is very interesting (and slightly scary)...
