College Basketball Picks: Kansas Jayhawks Vs. Missouri Tigers

Kansas vs. Missouri.

One of the oldest rivalries of any kind still going on will tip-off at 11:00 a.m. today and, as many of these games are, I expect it to be close.

The last time these two teams played Missouri actually had one of their better games of the season as they were efficient and didn't really have any gaping holes as they put up 86 points. The problem? KU shot 60 percent from the field and hit 11-of-19 three-pointers to put up 103 points. 

So who wins on Saturday? SB Nation's Big 12 Hoops takes a stab at it:

Wow tough one right out of the gate, I could see this game going either way. Even though we all know Missouri is a different team at home I don't think they are playing great ball right now and Kansas is rolling. Although the last time I thought KU was rolling was right before the road game in Manhattan. Even though Missouri is undefeated at home so far this year I am going to pick KU to win the game outright and cover the spread.    

Mizzou is a three-point 'dog at home and I'm actually going to pick them to win this game. Last game of the season, they play well at home, they played well against KU last time...I'm going with Mizzou.

To keep up with the action in this game, KU fans should go to Rock Chalk Talk and Mizzou fans should go to Rock M Nation.
