Away from home Missouri has had some of their biggest issues, and coming into this game they are averaging 60.2 points while the defense is giving up 72.6. 

The Tigers are led by Dru Smith who is averaging 12.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game. 

The Vanderbilt Commodores knew this season was going to be a rebuild and they are coming into this game having lost five games in a row and nine of the last ten games.

In the Commodores' last game it looked like they had knocked off Georgia, but they let up a half-court buzzer-beater and that led to a two-point loss. Over the last five games, Vanderbilt is averaging 67.8 points while the defense is giving up 77.8 points. 

One of the big problems for Vanderbilt is their leading scorer Aaron Nesmith is out for the season. The leading scorer for Vanderbilt who will be playing in this game is Saben Lee who is averaging 17.9 points and shooting almost 50 percent from the field.

Missouri is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight road games. Vanderbilt is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall.

The over is 14-3 in Mizzou’s last 17 games against the SEC. The under is 6-2 in Missouri’s last eight games played on Wednesday. The under is 19-7 in Vanderbilt’s last 26 games against the SEC. 

Vanderbilt might have lost their last game against Georgia but they played well and that is going to get them confidence heading into this game. Vanderbilt proved they have enough offense and they will cover the spread in this game.
