Missouri-Georgia Series Prediction

Georgia has won the last three series and five of the eight since Missouri joined the SEC in 2013. Mizzou has won three of the four series in Athens. The Bulldogs have swept two of the last three series (2018 & 2019). Missouri’s lone sweep came in Athens in 2015. The first six series between 2013-18 saw the visiting team take the series, until Georgia held serve in 2019.

Georgia has lost its last three series and is 3-7 since starting 11-6. A single victory against Missouri gives the Bulldogs three non-losing SEC seasons in the last four years for the first time since 2008-11. This is the fourth straight season Georgia is closing with a home series.

Missouri, which won three home series, looks to snap its four SEC road series losing streak. The Tigers are trying to avoid Kentucky’s streak of 13 consecutive conference road losses in 2011. This is the first time since 2017 that Missouri finishes SEC play on the road. Its eight conference victories match its total from last year. (Source: SEC)
