SEC Championship Game odds: Missouri opens as 2-point favorite over Auburn

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

At this point, Our Tigers are pretty comfortable playing the underdog role.

The Auburn-Missouri SEC Championship Game is set, as is the opening betting line. Their Tigers begin the week as two-point favorites over Our Tigers. The over/under is set at 58.5.

Everyone knows how Auburn got there, but while we were all celebrating, Missouri was knocking off Texas A&M, 28-21, to clinch the SEC East. Like Our Tigers, Their Tigers are 11-1 overall and 7-1 in SEC play. Their only loss came at home in double-overtime at the hands of South Carolina. However, backup quarterback Maty Mauck was taking snaps, and starter James Franklin, who was injured, is back in action.

Missouri has a potent offense, averaging 39.7 points and 491.9 yards per game. But Their Tigers' defense might be even more impressive. They're second in the SEC in scoring D (19.3 ppg), and against the run, they hold opponents to 113.2 yards per contest, second in the conference. Auburn passed a major test against Alabama's run defense, but Our Tigers likely won't have an easier road against Mizzou.

The SEC Championship Game is set for a 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. It will be broadcast by CBS.
