The Missouri Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs will meet up on the college basketball court Wednesday.

Missouri enters this one on a 13-15 mark so far. Following a four-game losing streak versus Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida and MS State, the Tigers tog a win in their last game versus South Carolina.

In the win over the Gamecocks, Missouri’s Torrence Watson topped the team with 20 points and one rebound. Kevin Puryear added 18 points with six rebounds for the Tigers there, and Jordan Geist had 15 points with five rebounds and three assists.

Over on the Bulldogs’ side, they’re 11-18 this season. Georgia was sporting a nine-game losing streak heading into Saturday’s matchup versus Florida, but the Bulldogs managed a 61-55 road victory.

In their win over the Gators, Georgia’s top scorer was Nicolas Claxton with 25 points, two assists and one rebound. He was the only Bulldogs player in double-figures there, but Jordan Harris was close on nine points.

The Tigers are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven versus a team with a losing straight-up record and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games. Missouri is 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last five Wednesday games.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are 5-0 ATS in their last five overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five Wednesday games. Georgia is 5-0 ATS in the last five versus the SEC and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games.

Missouri had some pretty ugly outings in their four-game losing streak, and they’ve only got two wins to their credit since February 2 when they beat Vanderbilt 77-67. Needless to say, it’s been a rough stretch for the Tigers.

Georgia isn’t in much better shape, but overall their final scores have been a little more competitive than Missouri’s. With the home lift, I’m going with the Bulldogs here, but it’s not a very inviting game in a lot of ways.

Pick:
Georgia Bulldogs -3
