Who Oddsmakers Like: Florida State. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Seminoles are the slim favorite in this one, as they are getting odds of -1 point against the Tigers. The spread opened with Missouri as a 1-point favorite and climbed to 1.5 points before turning over to FSU. The over/under total sits at 146.5 points after it opened at 148 points.

Public Betting Prediction: Missouri. As of Friday afternoon, the Tigers are getting 57 percent of the wagers on this game as the slight underdog to Florida State.

Injury Report: Florida state comes into today’s game clean on the injury report but Missouri has plenty of guys listed. Jordan Barnett, who averaged 13.7 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, is out due to a suspension following a DWI arrest. Star freshman Michael Porter Jr. will play, but he has appeared in just two games due to a back injury all season.

Bet on College Basketball for Friday, March 16, 2018

Who We Like: Missouri has a lot stacked against it. While it may be possible that Porter Jr. could take over this game and show the world his true potential, it’s hard to expect that in just his third game as a college player. The suspension of Barnett is a big blow. Missouri may play with a chip on its shoulder early, but their lack of scoring and depth will be a problem against this Florida State team. The Seminoles can score in bunches and I expect them to put up a number that Missouri just can’t hit.
