Missouri vs. Alabama Basketball Free Pick

Free Pick TonightTonight at 7:00 PM EST the Missouri Tigers take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in college hoops.  The Tigers are 11-2 straight up and 5-4 Against the Spread.  Alabama is 8-5 SU and 4-5 ATS.  The point spread is Mizzou -9.5 points.

Bama plays a different style of basketball than does Mizzou. They slow the game down and play strict defense. They allow only 58 points per game.  At the same time their offense is not very exciting scoring only 65 points per contest.  Mizzou scores 78 points per game and allows 64. This game will hinge on Missouri trying to speed the game up and score quickly and Bama trying to do the exact opposite. May be an ugly game.

Bama started the season very impressively beating their first 6 opponents which included Oregon State and Villanova.  They then dropped five of the next six games. On Saturday Alabama bounced back to beat Oakland convincingly 65-45. They were helped out by the return of 5th year senior Andrew Steele to the line up who was sidelined with a sports hernia injury.

Missouri is ranked tenth in the country and have only lost to UCLA and Louisville.  Their impressive wins have been against Stanford, VCU and Illinois. Team leader Laurence Bowers chips in right under 17 points per game but pretty much everyone on this team can score. Mizzou has the firepower and the better record but we are going to take Bama +9.5 to cover the spread.  They should hang in there tough until the end and keep it scrappy. Bet Bama +9.5 at Bet Revolution and get a special bonus offered to our readers.
