Against the Spread (ATS) Pick

Missouri has had a really good season thus far, and the team certainly boasts a ton of talent. Guards Xavier Pinson, Javon Pickett and Dru Smith are all threats on the perimeter, while forward Jeremiah Tilmon has done a lot of the dirty work around the basket. The Tigers have been decent on both ends of the floor, as they are 32nd in the country in adjusted offensive efficiency (all efficiency stats according to KenPom.com) and 43rd in adjusted defensive efficiency. The only problem is that Missouri just so happens to be running into an Alabama team that has the edge at nearly every position. 

On the year, the Crimson Tide are third in the nation in adjusted defensive efficiency and they have the type of defenders to make things difficult on all of Missouri’s offensive weapons. Alabama also happens to be 23rd in adjusted offensive efficiency, and the Tide can be extremely tough to stop with their unique offensive attack. In fact, in their last game, Alabama scored 78 points against LSU, with the team going 6-for-24 from the outside. That means that this Crimson Tide team can get it going, even when they’re not shooting well. Unfortunately for Missouri, it’s unlikely that Alabama is that cold two games in a row. Jaden Shackelford and John Petty Jr. were a combined 1-of-11 from three in that game. One would think they’d both right the ship against the Tigers here.  

Herbert Jones is another player to keep an eye on here. Alabama tends to play pretty small, so Jones will see some time with Tilmon guarding him. If that happens, Jones has the on-ball ability to drive right by him and his outside jumper will also pull Tilmon away from the basket, making it easier on Alabama’s guards to drive to the rim.

PREDICTION: Alabama -3.0 (-110)

Over/Under Pick

With the way Alabama played in their last game, an offensive explosion isn’t out of the cards in this one. In fact, it’s somewhat likely. The Crimson Tide are not a bad three-point shooting team, so the law of averages says they’ll get it going against the Tigers. While Alabama plays some great defense, Missouri’s guards are too good not to find any success. Even if the Tigers do fall behind somewhat early, it should be an up-and-down affair, with Missouri’s guards getting to take a lot of shots. Overall, it just wouldn’t be surprising if this game is pretty high scoring. 

PREDICTION: Over 151.5 (-110)
