The Missouri Tigers and Vanderbilt Commodores meet Saturday in week 8 SEC college football action at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field. The Vanderbilt Commodores need a win after losing 4 of their last 5 games. The Missouri Tigers look to snap a 3-game losing streak.

The Vanderbilt Commodores have lost 6 of their last 8 road games. AJ Swann is completing 60.9 percent of his passes for 953 yards, 8 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Will Sheppard and Jayden McGowan have combined for 884 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, while Ray Davis has 19 receptions. The Vanderbilt Commodores ground game is averaging 151.1 yards per contest, and Davis leads the way with 536 yards and 4 touchdowns. Defensively, Vanderbilt is allowing 39.4 points and 493.7 yards per game. Anfernee Orji leads the Vanderbilt Commodores with 71 tackles, Christian James has 2 sacks and De’Rickey Wright has 3 interceptions.

The Missouri Tigers have won 5 of their last 7 home games. Brady Cook is completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 1,217 yards, 5 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Dominic Lovett and Mookie Cooper have combined for 665 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Barrett Banister has 14 receptions. The Missouri Tigers ground game is averaging 166.2 yards per contest, and Nathaniel Peat leads the way with 379 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, Missouri is allowing 24.7 points and 331 yards per game. Jaylon Carlies leads the Missouri Tigers with 38 tackles, Ty’Ron Hopper has 2 sacks and Joseph Charleston has 1 interception.

The Commodores are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Commodores last 8 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Tigers last 5 games overall. The home team is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

The Vanderbilt Commodores have had a brutal schedule over these last 4 or 5 weeks, so I’d shoot them some bail for the way they look right now. However, Vanderbilt hasn’t played a lick of defense at all this season. We’re talking about a Vanderbilt team that allowed 31 points to Elon. The Missouri Tigers have had an extra week to prepare for this game, and they have an above average rushing attack that should give Vanderbilt issues. It’s Missouri and the chalk or pass for me.
