15* CBB Friday PLAY OF THE DAY on Missouri -8
Missouri vs. Old Dominion,
12/30/2011 19:00 EDT,
Score: 75 - 68
Point Spread: -8/-102 Missouri
The Missouri Tigers are one of the few remaining unbeatens, yet I still think they are better than they get credit for from oddsmakers. That has clearly been the case all season considering the Tigers are 12-0 SU & 5-2 ATS.
Missouri is outscoring opponents 87.1 to 61.3 on the season behind an up-tempo attack that is tough to tame. The Tigers keep coming at you, never letting off the gas. Old Dominion is going to have a hard time hanging with the Tigers tonight.
ODU is 6-6 on the season, getting outscored 63.2 to 64.0. They clearly don't have the kind of firepower it's going to take to hang with Mizzou. ODU is only shooting 38.7 percent from the field this season, including 26.7 percent from 3-point range.
The Tigers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Friday games, while the Monarchas are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. ODU is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall, while Mizzou is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Monarchs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games as well. Take Missouri Friday.
