Week one was viewed as a certain loss when Alabama was announced as the opponent. But this week Missouri travels to face Tennessee, a team who has been every bit a rollercoaster over the last few years.

So with that... who knows what happens? At least we start with an early kick!

Missouri-Tennessee football: Betting odds, predictions

As of Friday evening, Missouri is a 12.5-point underdog to Tennessee, according to VegasInsider.com. The total points (over/under) is 49. I feel like I’d take Mizzou to cover, and probably the under.

Josh Matejka: I’m kicking myself for not putting money on last week’s game, as I was confident that a scrappy Mizzou team wouldn’t get massacred in the first game of a COVID-19 season. As of Tuesday afternoon, though, the Vegas line is Tennessee -11.5, which is much harder to predict. Tennessee looked mediocre against South Carolina, and I think Mizzou is going to be a tough out against teams who aren’t Alabama.

As much as I want to pick the good guys and swim in some Voluntears, though, I can’t do it. Tennessee isn’t Top 25 good, but they’re better than Missouri right now. This could easily be a close game that’s within one score in the dying minutes — but Mizzou will make one too many mistakes. UT will capitalize and cover late.

Nate Edwards: As of Thursday morning the spread is holding steady at Tennessee -11.5 and, folks, I am confidentially taking the points. The Tennessee offense isn’t built to rack up 40+ on anybody, and if their defense trots out the same guys as last week, then the Missouri offense should find some opportunities. I am jumping full bore onto the, “just cover the spread,” victories for Missouri so, while the Tigers don’t win, they keep it within 10.

Sammy Stava: I hate to say it, but I still can’t predict Mizzou to win a conference road game against a ranked opponent quite yet. The Tigers aren’t there, and Tennessee has won seven straight games. I do however think this is a one-possession game entering the fourth quarter. Missouri covers the spread, but falls 28-21 in an encouraging performance.

Week... uh, Five?
