KenPom Matchup Alabama A&M

Obviously not a lot of data to go on at this point. Some of this is projection, but KenPom has projected Missouri to have a slightly above average offense and defense. Alabama A&M is bad at both. Missouri should have advantages across the board.

Missouri Season Preview

Alabama A&M is the worst basketball program in Alabama and currently ranked 349th out of 351 division 1 teams. To be quite honest, I'm not convinced that Central Missouri isn't a better basketball team than Alabama A&M. To what extent should we expect Missouri to win? Projections say 95%, which is pretty good. Honestly the projection spread is a bit light. The Bulldogs suffered a 34 point loss to Missouri State on friday night, and while the Bears are were ranked ahead of Missouri in several preseason projections, I'd still put the O/U on this line at around 22.5.
