The Missouri Tigers and Auburn Tigers face off on Saturday in a Week 4 college football showdown at Jordan Hare. When these two teams faced off in 2017, it was Auburn that secured the 51-14 victory. 

Missouri comes into this game with a 2-1 record overall but the one loss was a really bad one. Two games ago against Kansas State, Missouri scored only 12 runs, while the defense gave up 40 points on the way to the defeat. In the last game against Abilene Christian, Missouri scored 34 points, and that was enough to win by 17 points. Under center for Missouri is Brady Cook and in the last game, he completed 21 of his 30 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns. Wide receiver Dominic Lovett caught seven passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns. In this game, Missouri is going to need the defense to be strong here. 

On the other side of this matchup is Auburn who won their first two games of the season, but struggled in the last game. Auburn beat Mercer and San Jose State in the first two games, but in the last game against Penn State, they lost 41-12. Auburn is using a two-quarterback system and it appears that’s what they will run again here. In the last game, TJ Finlay completed 11 of 19 passes for 152 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. Robby Ashford completed 10 of his 19 passes for 144 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. No one has really run away with the starting job, and that seems to be the reason they are still playing the two quarterbacks. 

Auburn is 6-1 against the spread in their last 7 games following a double-digit loss at home. Auburn is 0-5 against the spread in their last five games in September. The over is 5-0 in Tigers last 5 games following a double-digit loss at home.

This isn’t my favorite play on the board. Missouri really can’t be trusted, but this Auburn team has an issue on their hands with the quarterbacks, and I don’t expect good quarterback play in this game. Look for Missouri to score at least 21 points here, and that will be enough to cover the spread.
