Wonder who the Top Experts Picked? Click Here To Find Out

Vanderbilt is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a road underdog while the under is 11-5 in their last 16 games overall. Missouri is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall while the under is 10-3 in their last 13 home games. The under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings at Missouri.

Something has to give here with Missouri 3-0 ATS at home and Vandy 3-0 ATS on the road. With that said, both teams have lived up to their billings in that aspect, with Missouri posting wins over LSU and Kentucky as well as a cover at home against Alabama while Vanderbilt hasn’t lost by more than 7 points on the road this season and have been double-digit underdogs in all of those spots. This is a game I think Missouri wins and probably wins by two touchdowns, but Missouri sneaks in the back door and covers. This is just a tad too many points. Give me Vanderbilt and the points in this one.
