Kentucky vs Missouri Prediction and Best Bet
Since Missouri joined the SEC in 2011, it has gone head-to-head with Kentucky a total of 12 times. The Wildcats own an 8-4 advantage in the series, but have not won at Faurot Field since 2018. It's hard to see that fact changing given how much they have struggled to find offensive success lately.
Over its last four games, Kentucky has scored an average of just 16.5 points. One of the biggest reasons why is the constant pressure being felt by quarterback Will Levis. Kentucky has allowed 30 sacks on the season and now has to face a Missouri team that is averaging 2.3 sacks per game.
The Tigers defense has a chance to shine in this game, leaving the offense in need of only a couple of touchdowns to get the job done. That shouldn't be too hard considering Kentucky allows 166.3 rushing yards per away game. Running back Cody Schrader will keep the chains moving on Saturday.
Overall, Missouri is 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games and is also 5-1 straight up in its last six home games. I'll side with the Tigers +1.5 (-115) and back under 40.5 points to be scored. Keep in mind the under has hit in each of Missouri's last five home games against this Kentucky team.
