College Basketball Picks: Alabama Crimson Tide @ Missouri Tigers
Date: Tuesday, January 7th, 7:00 ET
Location: Mizzou Arena, Columbia, MO
Alabama vs. Missouri Live TV: ESPN
If the Crimson Tide are going to be able to stick around in this game, they’re going to have to do so with their defense. They’ll have to find a way to slow this game down just a bit, because they aren’t going to score more than the 65.5 points per game that they are averaging this year. Someone for Alabama is going to have to hit the glass as well. Missouri is the top rebounding team in America, though we really don’t think that there is a way that it is going to end up getting anywhere near the 46.7 rebounds per game that it has picked up thus far this year. G Trevor Releford has put up at least 17 points in three of his last four games, and he is up to 15.6 points per game for the season. G Levi Randolph is coming off of a 15-point game against the Oakland Golden Grizzlies as well. It just feels like the Tigers are overrated in this one, and the first SEC game of the season is going to be covered by the visitors from Tuscaloosa.
Alabama vs. Missouri Pick: Alabama Crimson Tide +10.5
Alabama vs. Missouri Prediction: Missouri 68 – Alabama 61
