Missouri vs. Syracuse odds: Tigers favored over Orange

Jamie Squire

Missouri is favored by 4.5 points over Syracuse, who knocked Louisville out of the ranks of the undefeated last week.

The Missouri Tigers are 4.5-point favorites over the Syracuse Orange heading into the teams' non-conference game on Saturday in Columbia, Mo., according to OddsShark.com.

Both teams are coming off of dramatic victories last weekend and could be on hangover watch. The Tigers notched a 51-48, four-overtime victory on the road over the Tennessee Volunteers. Meanwhile, the Orange took out the previously-undefeated Louisville Cardinals, 45-26. Syracuse seems to have some momentum with bettors, possibly due to the win, as the line moved in their favor from its original position of 6.5 points.

The over/under for the game is set at 54.5. Both teams have averaged less than that figure to this point in the season. Syracuse and its opponents have combined to score 54.4 points per game, while Missouri and its foes have put up an average of 50.4 points per contest.

Kickoff between the Tigers and Orange is slated for 6 p.m. CT on Saturday night. Both teams are shooting to become bowl-eligible with a win.
