Auburn Tigers vs Missouri Tigers prediction

The Missouri Tigers should be up for this one at home, but that’s not enough for me to show interest. Missouri hasn’t won a game in over two months, and the Tigers are 8-21 ATS on the season. It’s just rough all the way around the board, and I have no interest in getting behind Missouri. The Auburn Tigers have been hit or miss on the road this season, and their defensive effort can come and go. Still, it doesn’t get much worse than Missouri when you’re talking about power 5 programs. Thick line for a road team, but Missouri is that bad. Give me Auburn and the chalk.
