LSU-Missouri Prediction

This series isn’t an eye catcher but it’s one that worth watching. This Missouri team played to a 1-1 series tie with Texas A&M a couple weeks ago. Mizzou also has a series win over a very good Ole Miss team. LSU should win this but they can’t afford to take Missouri for granted. Mizzou might win even if LSU doesn’t overlook them. LSU 2 wins, Missouri 1 win.
