The Missouri Tigers are 7-6 this season and they have won their last two games. Missouri is averaging 70 points per game and they are shooting 44.2 percent while defensively they are allowing 67 points and their opponents are shooting 38.7 percent. Kevin Puryear leads the Mizzou averaging 11.8 points per game. Wes Clark is averaging 10.1 points, Namon Wright is averaging 8.3 points and 5.0 rebounds, and Terrance Phillips is averaging 8.2 points. Missouri’s hoops program appears to be in a down trend.
Georgia is 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games, 1-4 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, and 2-6 against the spread at home against a team with a losing road record. Missouri is 5-16-2 against the spread in their last 23 road games, 7-19-2 against the spread following a win, and 0-4 against the spread against the SEC. The favorite has covered the point spread in four of the last five meetings of these two.
This seems like a lot of points for a conference game especially for a team that isn’t a powerhouse so I will take the points with Missouri.
