Auburn looks to end a losing streak and leap back into the Top 25 when they face the rival Missouri Tigers on Wednesday night. At one point, Auburn was ranked in the Top 10.

Missouri vs Auburn NCAAB Betting Lines & Expert Prediction

Why Missouri Tigers are a good bet ATS?

Missouri’s no where close to the top of the SEC Standings, but they do have a winning 10-8 record. Mizzou, like Auburn, hopes to end a losing streak. The Tigers dropped a game 60-72 to Arkansas as a 7-point road dog on Jan. 23.

On Jan. 26, though, LSU needed overtime to beat the Missouri Tigers. Mizzou showed in the loss to LSU that they could hang with a ranked team. Why couldn’t they hang with unranked Auburn?

Why Auburn Tigers a good bet ATS?

Is Auburn a good betting pick vs Missouri on Wednesday night?

Sometimes, things head south for no apparent reason. That’s what’s happened with the Auburn Tigers. Auburn had been one of the top teams in college basketball until losing 80-82 to Kentucky at home on Jan. 19.

The Tigers haven’t won since. Three losses in a row shouldn’t be anything to worry about, though. Head coach Bruce Pearl is one of the best in the business. He’ll have his team ready to dominate Mizzou on Wednesday night.

Missouri vs Auburn Final NCAAB Betting Analysis

Auburn’s been awful lately, but that shouldn’t deter anyone from backing them against the Missouri Tigers. Mizzou is one of the worst teams in the SEC while even though Auburn has fallen out of the Top 25, remains one of the top teams in the conference.

The Tigers allowed a disappointing loss to Kentucky to get into their heads. Pearl and his players know they’re better than both South Carolina and Mississippi State, the two teams they lost too after dropping the game to UK. Both losses were also on the road.

Finally back home, Auburn should reassert itself as one of the top teams in the nation. They’ll dominate Missouri. It’s hard to see odds makers setting a line the Auburn Tigers won’t cover on Jan. 30.
