The Kentucky Wildcats and Missouri Tigers face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Faurot Stadium. The home team has won the last three games played between the two teams. 

Kentucky comes into this game with a 5-3 record overall but they are coming off a blowout loss in the last game. Kentucky’s offense only managed six points against the Tennessee Volunteers and that led to the 38-point defeat. There is a lot of pressure on quarterback Will Levis and he really struggled. He completed 16 of his 27 passes for 98 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions. Levis at times has been a bit inconsistent, and they need him to be much better in this game. Kentucky is averaging 23.8 points while their defense is giving up 19.9 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Missouri Tigers who sit with a 4-4 record overall and they have gone 5-3 against the spread. Missouri has been up and down this season, but they are coming off a win in the last game. The Tigers defense gave up only 10 points to South Carolina. Quarterback Brady Cook completed 17 of his 26 passes for 224 yards. Missouri is averaging 23.9 points while their defense is giving up 21.5 points per game. Missouri needs the defense to be good. 

Kentucky is 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games. Missouri is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games against a team with a winning record. Kentucky is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven meetings against Missouri. The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings played between Kentucky and Missouri. 

There are many that are high on Levis, but I’m still not sold on him. Missouri's defense was strong in the last game against South Carolina, and I expect Kentucky is going to struggle to move the ball here. Brady Cook looked good in the last game, and he’s going to find success against a Kentucky defense that is reeling a bit. Back Missouri to come away with a cover of the spread.
