Tennessee comes into this game with a 2-2 record, but given their recent performances I really would not expect them to be at the .500 mark for too much longer this year, as they have just looked dreadful at times. The bookies do believe in them here, however, as they are only 2.5 point underdogs in this spot so a win certainly is a possibility when they head to Faurot Field this Saturday.
Missouri is another 2-2 team, but they have been much more impressive so far this year and they should be feeling very good about themselves going into this matchup with the Volunteers.
Tennessee is coming off of a blowout loss last time out, but that game was against a decent looking Florida Gators team and no doubt the Missouri Tigers will be a step down in class compared to that Gators team.
Tennessee never really felt like they were in that game, but they did gain over 400 yards in that one, so they did have their moments on offense and a repeat of that offensive performance may put them in a good position to win this one if the defense holds up.
Hendon Hooker has also looked good at the QB position throwing for 613 yards to go along with a 7-1 TD to interception ratio and he also adds plenty with his legs giving the Tigers defense even more to think about.
Missouri were very competitive in a tough loss in their last game at Boston College, as two critical turnovers were their undoing in an eventual 41-34 loss in overtime. Although it was the OT pick that sunk the Tigers, their QB Connor Bazelak showed a lot of good in that game throwing for over 300 yards and looking generally composed under center.
The Tigers have been putting up points all season long and I really do not see them slowing down here against Tennessee and if Bazelak can clean up the interceptions they will be in a strong position to send the home crowd home happy.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Pick
I really like the Missouri Tigers in this spot, as I think they are the much better football team and they are just not being priced like it. I know that the Tigers defense has really had some problems, but I do not have many doubts that the Tigers will be able to keep up here.
At the end of the day this is a price play and a straight up fade of a Volunteers team I have been thoroughly unimpressed with so -2.5 looks great in this home spot.
