COMMENTS

Missouri travels to LSU in what looks like an easy prediction: pick LSU. However, Missouri leads the league in strikeouts and is off to a 14-3 start. LSU sits at 12-6 and is struggling in several statistical categories. Missouri could win this series but LSU is an intimidating playing environment. Missouri should win at least one but look for the Tigers in purple to pull out a narrow series win.

Series Prediction


LSU 2 wins, Missouri 1 win
