The Missouri Tigers have lost both of their conference games after starting the year 3 – 0 in non-conference play. After a 14 point loss to Georgia to start SEC action, the Tigers lost 37 – 35 to South Carolina last weekend.
The Alabama Crimson Tide are rolling, and staying perfect is the goal for Nick Saban. The Tide are leading the nation in points scored, averaging 59 points per contest en route to a 5 – 0 record.
Tua Tagovailoa has gotten off to a tremendous start to his first campaign as the starter. The Heisman candidate has now thrown for 18 touchdowns, and still has zero picks on his stat sheet.
The Missouri Tigers look to shake a two game losing streak entering week 7 of the NCAA football season. Last weekend’s loss to South Carolina 37 – 35, saw the Tigers let a 23 – 14 halftime lead evaporate.
The second half was a back and forth affair, in a game that had eight field goals made overall. Missouri seemed to have the game in hand when they took a 35 – 34 lead with 2:48 to go, but the last field goal of the game was what settled the matter in South Carolina’s favor.
Senior QB Drew Lock had one of his worst performances in a Missouri jersey last week. Lock was 17 for 36 with 204 passing yards to go along with 2 interceptions. In fact, Lock has not thrown a TD in either of his two starts against SEC foes this season.
The Tigers were 4 for 16 on third down in the loss, and also failed to convert their only attempt on fourth down as well.

Does it get any better than 18 touchdowns and zero interceptions? Tua Tagovailoa is certainly proving that Nick Saban made the right choice when it comes to leading this team. Jalen Hurts has seemingly made the transition to the bench, although he obviously still gets playing time each week.
Sophomore wideout Jerry Jeudy continues to be one of Tua’s main targets. Jeudy has eight TDs on the season and grabbed two more last weekend against Arkansas. Jeudy only caught four balls in the win, but accumulated 135 yards to go along with the two scores.
Senior RB Damien Harris is proving that he is reliable on the ground and through the air. Damien Harris and Najee Harris combined for 164 yards out of the Tide backfield last weekend.
No one is in shock that Alabama appear as 28.5 favorites, and that line could climb before game time. Missouri let a South Carolina QB with little experience have a career day in his first start last weekend.

Alabama and Missouri have not met in four years, so no one in these uniforms has faced each other before. Luckily for Missouri, they have avoided having to face Nick Saban and his merry men recently.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Alabama is favored by 28 with a 74.5 on the total. Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
The play to make is on the Alabama team total when it comes out. Missouri won’t be holding Alabama to field goals like they pulled off last weekend against South Carolina. Alabama has Tennessee and LSU coming up, but we know Nick Saban doesn’t look ahead to what is next.
Saturday will be another tale of what Tua does with his arm against Missouri. That will likely account for 5 more TD passes to add to his already impressive total of 18. The Tide will likely cover the Tigers and the 4 TD line, but no one has proven they can stop the Alabama offense yet. Until we see someone pull it off, the Tide team total to go Over the 49. That should be about where it falls.
