Team Statistical Comparison

Missouri scores an average of 64.9 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 70.4 points per contest. South Carolina scores an average of 71.6 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 69.0 points per contest.

While this is not one of the top-tier games in the SEC this weekend, it is an important game for the two teams involved. Missouri’s players are fighting to save head coach Cuonzo Martin’s job while South Carolina still has an outside chance of slipping into the NCAA tournament. The Gamecocks could enhance their NCAA prospects significantly by winning their final two regular-season contests and then making some significant noise in the upcoming SEC tournament. Sports betting proponents must be wise when considering this matchup.
