Georgia handles their business at home against Middle Tennessee.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Middle Tennessee +32.5
I wouldn’t really call Missouri a look-ahead game for Georgia, so they should come out fully focused as they’ve gone 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven contests.
Middle Tennessee hasn’t performed well on the road where they’ve gone just 1-6 ATS in their last seven on the road.
The Blue Raiders are also going to have a big matchup with Florida Atlantic at home following this game, so who knows how focused they are going to be against an overpowering Georgia squad.
Georgia should produce another 40+ points in this contest, but that means Middle Tennessee just needs to eclipse 10 points to have a chance at covering, and I’ll take my chances on them doing just that.
