Week 8 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an SEC showdown between the Vanderbilt Commodores and Missouri Tigers. Vanderbilt has lost each of its first three conference games by at least 25 points and was shut out by a score of 55-0 by the Georgia Bulldogs last week.

Meanwhile, Missouri has gotten so close to a win in each of its first three conference matchups. The Tigers have lost those games by an average of just 4.7 points. A 24-17 loss to the Florida Gators was manufactured by quarterback Brady Cook's inefficient outing. His 2 interceptions proved to be costly.

Missouri enters this contest as the clear favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This SEC clash also features a total of 52.5 points, which is about average compared to this week's college football projected totals.

Vanderbilt vs Missouri Prediction & Pick

A tough schedule is partly to blame for the Commodores' recent defensive struggles, but it's certainly not the entire reason. Vanderbilt has allowed over 300 passing yards in five of its last six games and has allowed at least 28 points to every opponent this season. That is far from good.

Cook is going to have an opportunity to bounce back with a big game here. It helps that the Tigers also rank 19th in the country in terms of yards allowed per game (335.6). Having the defense back up the offense is a recipe for success. Missouri is 5-1 straight up in its last six games against Vanderbilt.

Final Score Prediction: Vanderbilt: 20 | Missouri: 30

Vanderbilt vs Missouri Best Bet

Upsets happen in college football all the time, which makes backing the under in this matchup much more appealing. The under has hit in each of Missouri's last five games and in six of its last seven games against a SEC opponent. The Tigers are building a reputation for keeping the clock moving.

The under has also hit in seven of the last eight head-to-head meetings between the Commodores and Tigers. Missouri is allowing only 22.3 points per game at home this season and has the defensive talent to keep Vanderbilt from hitting any plays deep down the field. Points will be hard to come by.

Bet: Under 52.5 Points (-112)
