South Carolina State at Missouri

The Tigers will welcome South Carolina State Bulldogs to Mizzou Arena on Monday then host Illinois Saturday. Tigers are 8-1 (3-4 ATS) on the season, with their only loss coming to Louisville Cardinals in a semifinal game at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas. Tigers having little trouble getting the ball through the hoop (75.1) with three double digit scorers lead by Laurence Bowers (16.9) have an easy matchup to start the week as Bulldogs netting just 68.0 PPG have lost three in-a-row and head into the contest 5-30 SU dating back to last season with a push in their only lined game. But, it get's a lot tougher when Fighting Illini come to town. Illinois has gotten off to a great start. Lead by Brandon Paul (18.8) the Fighting Illini netting 76.9 PPG are undefeated at 12-0 with a 5-4 mark against-the-oddsmaker. Still, got to like Tigers chances. Missouri has won 71 consecutive home games against non-conference opponents, are on a smart 7-1 (5-3 ATS) stretch overall vs Big 10 foes including 3-0 (2-1 ATS) running the hardwood vs Fighting Illini which are on a 3-8 SU/ATS skid in true road games.

Games to Watch
By David Schwab

Detroit vs. No. 4 Syracuse

Detroit heads into the Gotham Classic at the Carrier Dome with a four-game winning streak after beating Akron 80-73 this past Saturday as a one-point favorite at home. The Titans are now 6-4 straight-up on the season but just 2-5 against the spread. The Titans are averaging 77.7 points a game but hitting just 42.1 percent of their shots from the field.

Syracuse remained perfect on the year with Saturday's 85-61 romp over Canisius as a 22 ½-point home favorite. The lopsided victory pushed its overall mark to 9-0 SU and a highly profitable 6-0 ATS. The Orange are shooting 47.5 percent from the floor and ranked third in the nation in both scoring (84.7 points) and rebounds per game (45.7).
