Missouri vs. Kentucky Free Pick
In what should be a defensive slugfest, Missouri will open its SEC schedule tonight when it visits Kentucky at 7:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Wildcats are 3-point home favorites versus the Tigers while the over/under total is up to 45.5 after opening at 44.
The Tigers are struggling offensively thanks to inconsistent play along the offensive line and sloppy performances by quarterback Maty Mauk. The Tigers rank 76th in the nation in passing yards, 119th in rushing yards, and are tied at 195 in points scored. Getting running back Russell Hansbrough back will certainly help, but this is a team that needs to continue to rely on its defense to win games.
It's similar story in Kentucky, where the defense has been a bright spot for the Wildcats but efficiency has not been a trait for the offense under quarterback Patrick Towles. It would be an upset to see a shootout breakout in Lexington tonight.
The under is 6-0 in the Tigers' last six games in September and 7-2 in the Wildcats' last nine games in September.
