Missouri is 8-23-3 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, 1-3-2 against the spread in Saturday games, and 6-13-1 against the spread in their last 20 home games against a team with a losing road record. The favorite has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
The total is at 120.5 but I can see this one going over 130 so my free pick is 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.
