For reasons I do not understand, Vegas has started Missouri as a 4 1/2 point favorite over Kentucky on Saturday.
But seriously, why?
Missouri is 2-5 and dead last in the SEC East, while we’re sitting at 4-3 and in second place of the SEC East. The Tigers also lost – at home – to Middle Tennessee State.
Granted, we did lose at home to Southern Mississippi, but that was the first game of the season and this is not the same team they were on September 3rd.
I’m going to say it’s because we’re playing at Missouri and that Vegas hasn’t just bought into us yet. By kickoff yesterday, what started out as a 3-point spread favoring Mississippi State was bet up to 6 1/2.
Oh well. Let’s prove ’em wrong, Cats. I love the motivation of our guys and they’ll be coming in hot to Columbia off of last night’s win.
