Missouri vs. Auburn Pick

SEC Tournament Predictions: Missouri Tigers vs. Auburn Tigers 3/8/17

Will Auburn roll to a win in the SEC Tournament when it takes on Missouri tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Auburn is favored at home, as the Tigers are getting odds of -6.5 points against Missouri. The over/under total for the game is listed at 153 points. These two met twice during the season and Auburn won both meetings, covering the spread as well. These two meet from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Auburn ended the regular season at home with an 89-78 win over Missouri. The Tigers are now 18-13 overall and 7-11 in the SEC. They have covered the spread in three of their last four games to move to 16-13 against the spread on the season. Auburn averages 80.3 points per game on offense, but allows 79.4 on defense. Mustapha Heron is averaging 15.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game to lead the team while Jared Harper and Danjel Purifoy each add over 11 points per contest.

Missouri is on a six-game losing streak entering today. The Tigers are 7-23 overall and 2-16 in the SEC. They are also 12-13-2 against the spread, having failed to cover in their last two games. Missouri averages just 68.4 points per game on offense this season while allowing 72.1 on defense. Away from home, the Tigers give up 83.1 points per contest. Jordan Barnett is averaging 12.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while Kevin Puryear is adding 11 points and 6 rebounds per contest.

Bet on the SEC Tournament

Auburn was able to win somewhat comfortably at home over Missouri. The Tigers have been playing somewhat well lately as well, covering in three of their last four. The Auburn offense should continue to put up big numbers against this Missouri defense, which has been a mess away from home. I don’t see Missouri rising up to the challenge today, as its defense just can’t be trusted.
