Missouri had its three-game winning streak snapped last Saturday, as it suffered a 80-73 defeat to the Alabama Crimson Tide as 1.5-point road underdogs, while going OVER the betting total for the fourth time in five contests. The Tigers have three probable starters averaging in double figures, with junior guard Jabari Brown leading the way at 20.2 points a contest, which is important to consider when making your college basketball betting picks. Missouri is 2-5 SUATS as road underdogs of three or fewer points the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 4-3 in that situation.
The Tigers are searching for their sixth consecutive 20-win campaign Tuesday night, while Brown continues to be one of the more consistent performers in the Southeastern Conference—scoring in double figures in each of the team’s 27 games this season. Of the team’s last 20 games, 19 have been decided by 10 or fewer points, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball odds page. The team ranks second in the conference and 18th nationally in averaging 19.7 free throw makes per game.
Georgia is 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS over its last six games, as it looks to build off a 73-56 victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks as 1.5-point road underdogs last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total for a fifth consecutive affair. The Bulldogs have dropped four of the five all-time meetings in this series, but picked up a 70-64 overtime victory over the Tigers as 11.5-point road underdogs on Jan. 8. Georgia is 5-3 SUATS as home favorites of three or fewer points the last two-plus seasons.
The Bulldogs have two probable starters averaging in double figures, with sophomore guard Charles Mann leading the charge at 13.2 points a contest. He leads the team in points, assists and minutes played. Georgia is 15-3 SU on the season when out-rebounding its opponent, but has dropped all six instances when losing that statistical battle.
Sports bettors will likely back the Bulldogs due to their 20-8 ATS mark in their last 28 SEC games.
