March Madness gambling fans recall that Mizzou made the Sweet Sixteen in the Big Dance last year after a huge March Madness betting win over Marquette in round two. Missouri has built up their March Madness gambling credentials with a solid performance in the Big 12 March Madness betting race that saw them in the upper third of the league standings.
Mizzou had an overall March Madness gambling mark of 17-6 straight up and 10-7 with the betting lines gambling board.
Missouri has developed a strong March Madness gambling reputation for being one of the toughest home teams in the nation and they have maintained their excellent value on their home court with a March Madness gambling mark of 7-3 against the spread.
Mizzou has padded their March Madness gambling resume with Big 12 Conference straight up wins over Kansas State, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma State. The Tigers would enter March Madness gambling with one of the most explosive offenses in the nation as they ranked 11th in all of college basketball for scoring.
Their defense would also be solid in March Madness gambling action as it ranked in the upper third of the country. Sophomore guard Kim English leads the attack with an average of 14.8-points per game. Fellow sophomores Marcus Denmon and Laurence Bowers were also averaging in double figures.
With such talented youth in the lineup the long term prospects for Missouri basketball are quite impressive. Coach Mike Anderson has been frustrated that his team was not playing as well as it was practicing until their 95-80 win over Oklahoma State on January 30.
“We finally brought one of those practices to the game, pushing the tempo, pushing the ball, running on makes and misses…We used to make a living off that last year. Hopefully it’s a sign that we’re kind of rounding into shape,” said Anderson.
Rebounding is one area that needs improvement for MU as they ranked in the middle of the pack nationally for boards.
