Missouri is 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight home games, 2-5-1 against the spread in heir last eight games, and 2-6 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Texas A&M is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, 4-0 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 8-3 against the spread against a team with a losing record. The home team has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
The total is set at 120.5 but that looks to be too low so my free pick the over. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
