Score: 71 - 81
Point Spread: -7½/-110 Missouri
Today's winner is Missouri over Villanova. This is my LV Strip Move winner.
Missouri is off to their best start since the 2006-2007 season. At 7-0, the Tigers have shredded both Notre Dame and California already. They are outscoring opponents by an average of 27.9 PPG. The combination of their high-pressure defense and smooth Guards of Denmon, English, and Dixon jr. (all avg. DDs) are too much for opponents. The trio of Guards are combining for 48.08 PPG while their "D" is contributing to each of their wins by at least 15 points this season. This is a very unselfish squad. They are perfect in transition and will force the mistake-prone Villanova unit (13 TO's PG) to make mistakes. The Wildcats have a young team made up of 5 freshman and no seniors. They are just 1-5 ATS this season. They are 1-10 ATS their L11 games vs. teams with a winning percentage of over .600, 1-6 ATS their L7 non-Conference games, and 1-18 ATS their L21 games played overall. The Tigers are 13-5 ATS their L18 games played as a favorite of 7-12 1/2 points, 7-2 ATS their L9 non-Conference games, and 5-2 ATS their L7 games following a SU win. Take Missouri. Thank you.
