The Missouri Tigers and LSU Tigers face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. When these two teams faced off in March of 2021 it was LSU that won 86-80. 

Missouri comes into this game with a 10-18 record overall and they have gone 13-14 against the spread. Missouri is having a down season and they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against Tennessee, the defense was awful giving up 80 points, and that led to the 19 point defeat. Missouri is averaging 64.9 points while their defense is giving up 70.4 points per game. Kobe Brown has been the top player for Missouri averaging 12.4 points while shooting 46.8 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the LSU Tigers who sit with a 19-9 record and they have gone 17-11 against the spread. LSU got out to a fast start, but they haven’t been as dominant as of late. In the last game against Kentucky, they gave up 48 points in the second half, and that led to the five point defeat. LSU is averaging 72.8 points while their defense is giving up 62.2 points per game. Tari Eason has been the top player for LSU averaging 16.5 points while shooting 52.8 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from behind the three point line. This is a game LSU needs to win for tournament seeding.

MIssouri is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against a team with a winning straight up record. The over is 4-1 in LSU’s last five games following a straight up loss. The over is 4-1 in Missouri’s last five games against a team with a winning straight up record. 

LSU is a strong defensive team giving up only 62.2 points per game, and they are going to lockdown Missouri in this game. I also expect Missouri is going to slow down an LSU offense that is inconsistent, and that is going to lead to this game staying under the total. Back the under.
