The Missouri Tigers look for their fifth victory and first win over a ranked team. Drew Lock is completing 67.9 percent of his passes for 361 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Lock is coming off a two touchdown game against South Carolina. Nate Brown and J'Mon Moore have combined for 365 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Sean Culkin has 12 receptions. The Missouri Tigers ground game is averaging 119.4 yards per contest, and Ish Witter leads the way with 285 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Missouri is allowing 12 points and 263.6 yards per game. Kentrell Brothers leads the Tigers with 59 tackles, Walter Brady has five sacks and Ian Simon has three pass deflections. Nate Crawford is questionable.
The Gators are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Tigers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
Missouri's offense has had issues moving the ball all season and that's not going to change against possibly the best defense in the country. While this is a possible letdown spot for the Gators, the spread isn't big enough to take the Tigers. I expect the Gators to win this quite easily and remain undefeated heading into a game against LSU.
