The Missouri Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide meet in college basketball action from the Bridgestone Arena on Saturday afternoon as part of the SEC conference tournament. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Alabama is listed as an 8.5-point favorite with the total for this game set at 157.5 points.
For Missouri, Kaleb Brown and Tre Gomillion are both questionable for this game while Alabama’s Dominick Welch is also questionable for this game with a tailbone injury.
Alabama’s 85-64 win over Missouri back on January 21st, 2023, made it back-to-back wins for Alabama in this head-to-head matchup.
Missouri is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games while the over is 14-5 in their last 19 games following an ATS win. Alabama is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 neutral site games.
I’m backing Alabama here. The reality is that Missouri, while performing well the last couple of games, for the most part hasn’t been the same team away from home and on a neutral floor. The Alabama Crimson Tide continue to execute, and just made light work of a really good Mississippi State team. This Alabama team is no joke and I think Missouri’s in for a rough one here. Give me Alabama laying the points.
