Scenario 6: Georgia loses one game, Missouri loses one game. Missouri advances on record. (35%)

Georgia losing to Auburn, and Missouri losing to Texas A&M seems the most likely to me.

In both games, Georgia and Missouri should be underdogs, and in both games, they will be facing the most high-powered offenses they’ve seen all season. Both would have to pull off serious upsets.

In a few of the metrics I’ve seen, Georgia would be a four point underdog at home to Auburn, and Missouri would be a three point underdog on the road to A&M. Of course, that’s going off current conditions today. The projections will change since Auburn plays A&M this coming weekend.


So in the final tally, I have the Missouri Tigers as the most likely to win the SEC East with 64%, Georgia at 30%, and Florida at 6%. You can feel free to tell me why I’m wrong and terrible at estimating in the comments or on Twitter. In the meantime, I can’t wait to see how it all plays out for Georgia, especially in the Auburn game. Go Dawgs!
