The Volunteers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win. The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The under is 7-3-1 in Volunteers last 11 overall. The over is 7-1 in Tigers last 8 neutral site games.
The Tennessee Volunteers obviously have the horses to blow the doors off here, and they have a crowd that shows up. However, Missouri beat Tennessee on the road a month ago, and they’re 8-4 ATS in non home games. Tennessee is 6-10 ATS in non-true home games. Missouri has the offensive firepower to hang around. I’ll grab the points.
