Guesses on how Missouri will do in the SEC
The Kansas City Star
We’ve all been guessing on what will be one of the more fascinating stories to follow this fall. We can admit that, right?
Because none of us — not you, not me, not Gary Pinkel and not Mike Slive — really has anything other than a guess or gut feel about how Missouri football will do in the SEC this fall.
I’ve been thinking they’ll go 4-4 or so. Some of you have thought better, some worse.
Well, for being 87 days before the first game and 94 days before Mizzou’s SEC opener, there’s a guess out there I thought worth passing on from the fine folks behind @BeyondTheBets.
They put together an admittedly way-too-early projection of all SEC games, and, well, it’s not real kind to Mizzou.
For whatever it’s worth, at the beginning of June, BTB has MU favored in only two games — Vanderbilt at home and Kentucky at home — and underdogs of between 2 1/2 (at Texas A&M) and 13 (Alabama at home) points in the others.
Who knows how the actual games will go, or for that matter, what the actual lines will be. I still think MU can win four conference games (Vandy, Kentucky, A&M and Georgia, for instance) and there’s only one game (Alabama) I’d be shocked to see MU win.
Whatever. Gives us something to talk and think about in June, if nothing else.
