Remember when there was optimism about the Missouri Tigers? Feels like forever ago. The Tigers have sputtered their way through SEC play so far. An 0-2 start with losses to the Kentucky Wildcats and Tennessee Volunteers has been less than ideal. Especially when you consider just how badly the Vols roughed the Tigers up last week. Oh and, well, Mizzou has the worst run defense in the country. It’s been twice as bad as Ole Miss’. Literally! Anyways, they play North Texas this week.

Spread: Mizzou -19 | North Texas +19
Moneyline: Mizzou -1125 | North Texas +700
So like... yeah, Mizzou can’t afford to drop this one. They more than likely won’t, but their lack of competitiveness against Tennessee was pretty harrowing. As was the fact that they couldn’t hold the lead against Boston College and the defense just couldn’t stop anything. North Texas comes in ranked 112th in scoring offense and 118th in yards per play. If Mizzou drops this one... well, I don’t know what to really say anymore.
