Why Missouri can cover
Missouri has been one of the most impressive teams in the SEC this season, adding a 36-7 win against then-No. 13 Tennessee last week. Tigers quarterback Brady Cook completed 18 of 24 passes for 275 yards and a touchdown in that win. Senior running back Cody Schrader rushed for 205 yards and a score while catching five passes for 116 yards.
Schrader has racked up 1,124 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns this season, averaging 5.7 yards per carry. Star wide receiver Luther Burden leads the team with 67 receptions for 977 yards and eight touchdowns, giving Missouri way more firepower than Florida. The Tigers have covered the spread in seven of their last eight games, while Florida has only covered three times in its last 11 games.
Why Florida can cover
Florida is on a three-game losing skid, but it also has wins over South Carolina and Tennessee this season. The Gators desperately need a statement win under second-year coach Billy Napier, as pressure continues to mount on him and his staff. Their offense is led by veteran quarterback Graham Mertz, who has thrown for 2,720 yards, 18 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
His ability to engineer scoring drives while taking care of the ball makes Florida a dangerous road underdog. Wide receiver Ricky Pearsall has 62 receptions for 876 yards and four touchdowns, while Eugene Wilson III has 51 catches for 479 yards and five scores. The Gators also have a dangerous rushing attack, with Trevor Etienne and Montrell Johnson Jr. combining for more than 1,200 rushing yards. See which team to pick here.
