Scenario 2: Georgia loses one additional game, Missouri loses two or more additional games, and Florida wins both conference games. Florida advances to the championship on complicated tie-breaker of SEC East division wins. (5%)

The Bulldogs losing a game isn’t unlikely since they play Auburn. It’s the rest of this scenario that gets ridiculous. Missouri has everything to play for right now, and Tennessee and Arkansas can’t really figure out how to score consistently.

However, Missouri isn’t exactly lighting up the scoreboard in SEC competition either. Those games could be close, but it’s a 70/30 prop at best. The kicker here is that Florida would have to win out, and the hairy game for them would be South Carolina. The Gamecocks have scored 35 points a game, but they give up just as many to opposing teams. The problem is that I don’t think Florida can win any shootouts against the evil genius Steve Spurrier.
