15* Mizzou/Kansas CBS Saturday No-Brainer on Missouri +8
Missouri vs. Kansas,
02/25/2012 16:00 EDT,
Score: 86 - 87
Point Spread: +8/-102 Missouri
The Missouri Tigers and Kansas Jayhawks have a lot on the line in this Big 12 showdown. The winner will have the inside track to the Big 12 title. Kansas would win the regular season conference title with a win, while Missouri would hold the tiebreaker with a victory.
I look for this one to go right down to the wire and be decided within the last couple of possessions. Missouri already beat Kansas 74-71 in their first meeting, and I have no doubt they are capable of going on the road and capping off the season sweep today.
The Tigers are 25-3 on the year and 10-2 on the road this season. They should not be this big of an underdog to any team in the country, let alone Kansas. Somehow, Missouri just doesn't get the respect they deserve, and that's clearly evident with this line.
The Tigers are 6-0 ATS versus good shooting teams - making >=45% of their shots this season. Missouri is 12-3 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record this season. Kansas is 1-7 ATS when the total is 140 to 149.5 this season. Roll with Missouri Saturday.
