Missouri remains a seven-point favorite in tomorrow night’s game vs. No. 12 Kentucky, and if you trust history, that is a very bad sign for the Cats.
According to College Gameday betting guru Chris Fallicia, in the last 40 years, eight unranked teams have been favored by six or more points vs. top 12 teams and each time, they won. In seven of those games, the unranked team covered the spread. In the six instances the unranked team was home, they won and covered.
