Two 4-5 teams will square off this weekend.

The Tennessee Volunteers got back in the win column on Saturday night, improving to 4-5 on the season. They’ll hop back into SEC play this weekend as they head to Missouri.

The Tigers started very slow this year, but have figured some things out lately. They blew out Florida on Saturday at home. Vegas took notice and has made Missouri 10 point favorites over Tennessee.

Tennessee beat the spread for just the third time this year against Southern Miss. Florida and Kentucky were the other two.

Butch Jones called Missouri one of the hottest teams in the country right now. I’m not sure about all that, but they’ve won three straight. That three game stretch was Idaho, UConn and Florida.

Missouri can certainly score some points, though. It’s going to be a matter of whether or not Tennessee can keep up. A lot of that will depend on injuries, which we’ll check on later in the week.
