The Missouri Tigers and Florida Gators face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at O’Connell Center.
The Missouri Tigers come into this game with a 14-7 record overall but coming into this game they have lost four of their last five games. In the last game against Ole Miss the offense could only manage 53 points and that led to the defeat. Missouri on the season is averaging 73.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 71.5 points per game. In this game the offense is going to need to find a way to get going early and not fall behind. Guard Xavier Pinson has been the best player for Missouri averaging 14 points while shooting 39.5 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Florida Gators who sit with a 13-6 record overall and they have won three games in a row. In the last game against Kentucky the defense gave up 67 points and that led to a our point victory. Florida on the season is averaging 75.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.9 points per game. Florida is shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 35.9 percent from behind the three point line. Guard Tre Mann has been the best player for Florida averaging 14.7 points while shooting 64.1 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from behind the three point line. The Gators lost star Keyontae Johnson for the season because of a heart condition and not having him has been a big loss for this team.
The over is 8-2-1 in Missouri’s last 11 games overall. The over is 7-2-1 in Missouri’s last 10 games against the SEC.
This total is too low. Missouri is going to get their offense back on the right track and that is going to lead to this game going well over the total. Back the over to cash with ease.
