Kentucky vs. Missouri
Saturday, October 26, 2019 at 6:31 PM (Kroger Field)
MIZ -10 O/U 47
Missouri has cracked the top 25 on the year and they have looked really good lately outside of the game they just played against Vanderbilt. The game against the Commodores was a lot harder than what the Tigers expected as they allowed the Commodores to get a total of 21 points in the game, which is more than what they typically give up. Then to make matters worse the Missouri squad was handcuffed offensively in the game.
This year the Tigers have been able to score around 35 points a game. The team has thrown the ball for 256 yards a game, but has ran the ball for 193 yards a game. The Tigers have allowed in most cases right around 17 points a game. The team has allowed only 156 yards a game on the ground and allowed 114 yards a game on the ground.
Kentucky is coming into the game here after giving the Georgia Bulldogs a challenge. The game was actually scoreless until the second half and that is when the Bulldogs were able to take control over the game. What the Wildcats really had show up was a great defensive outing for the team which was able to contain the good Bulldogs offense.
When it comes to scoring on the year the Wildcats have typically been able to get 20 points a game. The team has thrown the ball for 167 yards a game, but have ran the ball for 188 yards a game. Defensively the Wildcats have managed to give up only 23 points a game on average. The team has allowed 183 yards a game in the air and allowed 182 yards a game on the ground.
Missouri will be looking to bounce back after losing their recent game to Vanderbilt. The game is going to be a battle here, though, as the Wildcats were able to put up a great defensive showing in the game against the Georgia squad and that is a lot better offense than the Tigers. Look for the Wildcats offense to be the problem child in this game again as the defense does great, but the offense is unable to fill in the gap. Final Score Prediction, Missouri Tigers win and cover ATS 21-7.
