Missouri entered its bye week in rough shape, lacking offensive flow, without a defensive identity, and nursing some injuries. This gap in the schedule looked, after the demoralizing home loss to Auburn, to come at a perfect time for the Tigers. Barry Odom agreed, as his team prepares to face Kentucky (4-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) for its first road game of the season. The reasons to bet on Missouri have nothing to do with Missouri – they all deal with the struggles of Kentucky. The Wildcats have not scored more than 27 points in any game they have played this season. They won a game against a lower-division opponent in Week 2, and they still couldn’t score more than 27 points.
Missouri is getting a Kentucky offense that, while regular in its production, isn’t particularly explosive, something the Tigers have struggled with defensively so far. Just 36 of the Wildcats’ 314 total plays this season have been gains of more than 20 yards from scrimmage, and they have no plays of 60-plus yards. If there’s an in-conference opponent Missouri can keep in front of itself, Kentucky sure looks like that team.
It is also important to note that Kentucky’s loss to Florida was a particularly damaging event for the Wildcats. They had lost 30 straight games to the Gators and now have to deal with 31. The Wildcats seemed to carry that over into the Eastern Michigan game this past Saturday. The win wasn’t secured until the last play of the game. If Kentucky doesn’t emerge from that hangover, Missouri could certainly come into town and spoil this night game for the Wildcats.
