Missouri-Georgia Prediction

This is an interesting series. Georgia plays a surging Missouri squad. The Dawgs played until after 1:30 am on Wednesday morning in earning a hard fought mid-week 20-inning marathon 3-2 win over Clemson. Their pitching has got to be somewhat depleted, at least the bullpen. Missouri is coming off a near sweep win over LSU and a series tie at Texas A&M the weekend before. It’ll be two teams with solid pitching fighting it out for another series victory. Prediction: Toss up.
