Missouri Preview

The Missouri Tigers are 23-8 (11-7) this season after they defeated Ole Miss by a score of 82-77 in their last game. Missouri shot 55.2% from the field and forced 16 turnovers in the win. The Missouri Tigers are averaging 80.1 points per game, 74.8 points against per game, 30.5 rebounds per game, and 16.4 assists per game.

Tennessee is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win. The over is 8-3 in Tennessee’s last 11 Friday games and the under is 7-3-1 in their last 11 games. Missouri is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The over is 7-1 in Missouri’s last 8 neutral site games.


Missouri comes into this game on a four game winning streak and they have scored at least 81 points in each of their last three games. Tennessee has won three of their last four games and is one of the best defensive teams in the nation. It will be interesting to see which team is able to dictate pace, as these two teams play two very different styles. Missouri is not good on the defensive end of the floor, but I think their offense is good enough to keep them in it. I like Missouri with the points. 

David’s Pick Missouri +6.5
