GBU's Pick
I'm leaning towards Missouri here. I get why the Vols are getting the respect here, but I just don't trust Joe Milton III at QB. He has a heck of an arm for distance and strength, but it can be wildly inaccurate, and that's not what I'm looking for in what could end up being a shootout. I trust Brady Cook a lot more with his group of weapons including Luther Burden III, and I think in the end, Missouri gets the job done at home. I haven't loved the Vols on the road this season either, so give me the Tigers at home.

Tennessee is favored at -2.5 & the O/U is 58.5
