Kentucky-Missouri Prediction

This series, along with the South Carolina-Alabama series, will likely be big factors in which teams miss out on the SEC Tournament. In this game Missouri has both better pitching and hitting. Add that to the fact that the game is being played in Columbia and you have to go with the Tigers. Missouri 2 wins, Kentucky 1 win.
