Marquette vs. Missouri NCAA Tournament Odds

Marquette vs. Missouri NCAA Tournament odds mostly featured a line of Tigers -3 ½ but about 25 percent of the online sportsbooks were listing Marquette at +4 including BetUS.com.

The last time these two teams met in 2003, Marquette beat Missouri in overtime by a score of 101-92 during the NCAA Tournament.

The Golden Eagles, however, are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games.  Missouri, on the other hand, is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 NCAA Tournament games.

"This was the third most bet on game of the day at most online sportsbooks," points out Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.  "Missouri was the pick, getting close to 75 percent of the betting action at most establishments."

There was good news for Marquette as the program announced Dominic James was cleared to play. James underwent surgery Feb. 27 and had been rehabbing since.

"I don't know how much he'll be able to contribute," Marquette coach Buzz Williams said in a statement. "The thing that I'm excited about is we're going to give him an opportunity to close out his career in the best way he possibly could.

"He worked out the day we got here, he worked out Friday morning before our game, worked out Friday night, practiced with us today. So medically he's been cleared, but how much he'll be able to contribute, I don't know."

James was averaging 11.4 points and 5.1 assists for Marquette (25-9) prior to the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

BetUS.com had betting odds on Marquette vs. Missouri and all other 2009 NCAA Tournament action.
