Missouri-Vanderbilt Prediction

Surging Vanderbilt hosts a very respectable Missouri team in Nashville. Vanderbilt has dominated the Tigers ever since Mizzou joined the SEC back in 2012 and leads the all-time series 17-3. Vandy has the edge in this game in hitting and fielding while Mizzou has the better pitching. The boys from Vanderbilt have swept three straight SEC series. They should be able to sweep this one too but Mizzou might sneak in a win. Vanderbilt 3 wins, Missouri 0 wins.
