Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (odds)
Record: 14-4 Overall / 9-0 Conference
Alabama will face the LSU Tigers at home first this Wednesday before taking on Mizzou on Saturday. Whatever the result in that LSU game, the Crimson Tide will be eager to pull off a quality win against the Tigers. In their most recent outing, as of this writing, Alabama saw its 10-game win streak end at the hands of the Oklahoma Sooners in a 66-61 loss in Norman during last weekend’s Big 12-SEC Challenge. Alabama’s shots haven’t been falling like it used to in its previous games. The Crimson Tide have shot just 39.0 percent from the field in their last two games and only 33.3 percent from behind the arc. That being said, Alabama’s offense can just wake up anytime and be the juggernaut that it used to be. On the season, Alabama is averaging 79.9 points per game and ranks 21st in the nation with 113.6 points per 100 possessions. In the SEC, Alabama is tops with a lethal 41.2 percent shooting from deep and No. 1 with 84.9 points per game in conference matches.
Alabama is 6-3-1 against the spread in its last 10 road games.
Betting on the Missouri Tigers (odds)
Record: 11-3 Overall / 4-3 Conference
Missouri will look to go back to back when it faces the Kentucky Wildcats at home this Wednesday. In its last game, the Tigers eked out a 102-98 overtime home win over the TCU Horned Frogs. Mizzou’s offense was on point in that meeting, as the Tigers sank 57.4 percent of their shots from the field – their best, so far this season. Missouri waxed hot from deep, going 11 of 23 on 3-point attempts, which was just the second time this season in which the Tigers drilled at least 10 threes in a game. Missouri’s defense was put to the test by the Horned Frogs, and while TCU exposed a bit of the Tigers’ defense, Xavier Pinson Jeremiah Tilmon showed that they are more than ready to take on the challenge of any potential offensive duel. Pinson had 36 points against TCU, while Tilmon had 36.
Missouri is 8-2 straight up in its last 10 home games against Alabama.
Alabama wins, 79-74.
