What you need to know about Missouri
Mizzou came up short against the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday, falling 86-76. One thing holding Mizzou back was the mediocre play of forward Kobe Brown. He played for 38 minutes but put up just six points on 3-for-13 shooting.
Brown is the team’s leading scorer with 13.8 points per game. But the Tigers haven’t been too explosive overall on offense as they average just 67.6 points per game. This could be a good spot for Missouri, however, from a betting standpoint. Mizzou is 5-3 against the spread at home this season and 3-1 ATS as a home underdog.
What you need to know about Auburn
Meanwhile, Auburn netted an 80-71 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats this past Saturday. Auburn got double-digit scores from four players: forward Walker Kessler (19), guard K.D. Johnson (17), forward Jabari Smith (14) and guard Wendell Green Jr. (11).
That win helped elevate Auburn to its historic ranking and the Tigers are currently projected to be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament after winning 15 straight games. Smith leads the way with 15.7 points per game, while Johnson averages 13.1 and Green contributes 13 points per game. Auburn ranks 18th nationally in scoring offense (80.7 ppg).
