Florida-Missouri Prediction

This is kind of a surreal series. You have once mighty Florida visiting once bottom feeder Missouri. The tables have turned. This time it is the Tigers that have the upper hand at least in pitching (a big edge) and fielding. Florida has a slight edge in batting. Mizzou may sweep this series but look for Florida to pull out at least one win. Missouri 2 wins, Florida 1 win.
