Free NCAAB Pick:

Missouri Tigers -4.5

The Kentucky Wildcats are still being overvalued by Vegas due to their name, but this isn’t a very good team this season and they will be tested by the experienced Missouri Tigers on their homecourt. The Tigers have proven their worth scoring the basketball this season as they are averaging 75.2 PPG as well as coming off a 102-point performance against TCU, and they have a handful of guys who can push the basketball with 4 different guys averaging over 10 PPG. The Kentucky Wildcats are an extremely talented team on paper this season, but they are 4-4 in conference play and only averaging 69.8 PPG which will be a problem in this up tempo paced game that the Tigers want to play. Final Score Prediction, Missouri Tigers win and cover ATS 76-68.
