The Missouri Tigers go on the road to battle SEC rival the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday.
The question for the Missouri Tigers is can they escape the conference basement in the closing weeks of the regular season. The Tigers might be on their way with back to back victories after downing South Carolina as an eight point home dog on Tuesday with an eight point edge at the half holding up. The Gamecocks were limited to 33% from the field with 16 extra looks at the basket not being enough. The Tigers connected at 37.7% with eleven more free throws being the deciding factor. Ryan Rosburg paced Missouri with 18 points and five yanks on 5-8 with Terrence Phillips adding 15 points and seven boards. Namon Wright followed with eleven points and seven rebounds while Tremaine Isabell and KJ Walton scored ten points each.

The Arkansas Razorbacks look like they will finish somewhere in the bottom half of the SEC unless they can sweep the remaining schedule and get some help. The Razorbacks are heading in the wrong direction with losses in four of five after falling to visiting Auburn 90-86 as a 16.5 favorite on Wednesday. The Tigers burned the nets at 61% including 15-23 from distance while Arkansas stayed competitive on 44% with 12 more attempts with ten more free throws. The Razorbacks received 21 points on 9-18 from Anthlon Bell with 20 points and ten rebounds coming from Moses Kingsley. Dustin Hannahs netted 18 points while Jabril Durham added 12 points and ten assists.
The under is 8-2 in Missouri last 10 Saturday games and the Tigers are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The Tigers have been getting crushed all year but have put up a fight lately. They might get smacked around again but if I played this I’d at least consider the points…
