Missouri Tigers vs Alabama Crimson Tide

Where: Coleman Coliseum, Tuscaloosa, AL

When: Saturday, January 18, 3:30 PM. ET.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Missouri Tigers on Saturday afternoon.

Tigers Going For Second Win In Five Games

The Tigers haven’t played well over the last week and enter this game on a two-game road losing streak. They will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Mississippi State and pick up their second win in their last five games when they face the Crimson Tide on Saturday.

Missouri has struggled offensively, averaging 66.8 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 31 percent from three-point range. They finished with 45 points in their last game and will need a much better performance to give themselves a chance to win this game.

Kobe Brown led the way for the Tigers with 14 points and four rebounds, while Javon Pickett added nine points and two rebounds for the Tigers, who finished the game with only one player scoring in double figures.

Missouri has played well defensively, holding opponents to 59.7 points per game. They gave up 72 points in their last game and will need to do a better job defensively if they want to pick up the win.

Crimson Tide Going For Sixth Win In Eight Games

The Crimson Tide are coming off their biggest win of the season, a blowout win over fourth-ranked Auburn. They will try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Tigers, which will give them their second win in a row and sixth win in their last eight games.

Alabama is one of the best offensive teams in the country, averaging 83.2 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 36 percent from three-point range. They finished with 83 points in their last game and will need a similar performance to give themselves a chance to win this game.

Kira Lewis Jr. led the way for the Crimson Tide with 25 points and three rebounds. Herbert Jones finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while Alex Reese added 13 points and three rebounds for the Crimson Tide.

Alabama hasn’t played well defensively, giving up 77.8 points per game. They gave up 64 points in their last game and will need another solid defensive effort to get past the Tigers.

Rating:

The Crimson Tide are coming off an upset win over fourth-ranked Auburn thanks to a solid defensive effort that helped them hold one of the best offenses in the country to 64 points. Even though they are giving up 77.8 points per game, the Crimson Tide play well defensively at home and have given up 70.2 points per game in their last five games. The Tigers have struggled offensively, averaging 66.9 points per game, and are averaging 56 points per game in their last three road games, which means they will struggle to score against the Crimson Tide in this game. The Tigers are giving up 59.7 points per game, but they also haven’t been as sharp on the road, giving up 65.6 points per game and will have a hard time slowing down the Crimson Tide, who are averaging 83.2 points per game. With the Crimson Tide winning six of the last seven meetings between the two teams and the last four games on their home court, Alabama is the best bet here.

Prediction: Alabama Crimson Tide

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Crimson Tide are averaging 83.2 points per game, but they will fall under their season average in this game because they are averaging 80 points per game in their last three games and are facing a defense that is holding opponents to 65.6 points per game in their last three road games. The Tigers are averaging 66.9 points per game but they will also fall under their season average in this game because they have struggled on the road, averaging 56 points per game and scored a season-low 45 points in their last game. With the Crimson Tide and Tigers playing under the total in their last four games, the under is the smart play here.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick
