Missouri Tigers vs. Kansas Jayhawks

The Kansas Jayhawks are a 10-point home favorite today against the Missouri Tigers in Big 12 action.  The over/under total for the game is set at 155.  The Missouri Tigers are 18-5 overall and 9-9 in games verses the spread.  Last week the Tigers were ranked #15th in the country before losing at Oklahoma St. 76-70.  Missouri was a 2-point road favorite in the game.  Missouri rebounded from that defeat on Saturday beating Colorado 89-73 as a 10-point home favorite.  The 89 points were close to what the Missouri Tigers have been averaging.  Missouri averages 83.3 points per game, which ranks them sixth in the nation.  In their prior two games before Colorado, the Tigers only scored 64 points per game.  The er is 10-7 this year and 4-1 in road games.

Kansas is 22-1 on the year and 11-10 against the spread.  This past Saturday they defeated Nebraska 86-6.  The Jayhawks were 5-point road favorite in the game.  It was the 17th straight time that Kansas beat Nebraska.  Saturdays win was the fourth straight for the Jayhawks since their only defeat, which was to Texas on January 22nd.  Three of the past four wins have been by 20 or more points and Kansas has covered in three of their last four.  Kansass last four games have gone er the total.  The er is 12-7 this year in Kansass games and 6-2 in conference play.

The Jayhawks currently are on a 3-0 stretch against Missouri bot straight up and against the spread.  Kansas won both games last year, the first winning 84-65 as a 12-point home favorite and 77-56 on the road as a 4-point favorite.  Both games finished der the total.

I am going with the trends in this game.  I am taking Kansas minus the 10 points due to their recent success over Missouri and how well they have been playing in their last four.  I am also going to take the der.  Both games last year went der, and I expect both teams defensive intensity to be up tonight.  This game should be very exciting.  Be sure to log-on to sportsbook.com to place a bet on this nationally televised game.
