Missouri-Tennessee Prediction

This series is actually one of the better series of the weekend. Both these teams are in the hunt for a possible NCAA bid. With only three regular season conference series remaining, this is an important one for both squads. This series should consist of three pitching duels. As usual, if two teams are about even you go with the home team. Tennessee 2 wins, Missouri 1 win.
