College football betting the Valero Alamo Bowl comes down to assessing the offense of Missouri and the defense of Northwestern versus the college football odds that are in the area of Missouri -12.5. The Missouri Tigers had high college football betting expectations entering the 2008 season and fell short, as they were exposed against top tier teams as a college football odds pretender.
Mizzou did win the Big 12 North Division title but was humiliated on the college football betting board in the Big 12 championship game as they were blown out by Oklahoma 21-62 as 16 point dogs against the college football odds. Missouri was an even 5-5 split as a college football betting chalk this season.
The Tigers do not have much Valero Alamo Bowl odds momentum as they failed to beat the college football betting number in 6 of their last 8 games. Still, Missouri is not without Valero Alamo Bowl odds appeal as they ranked 6th in the nation on offense.
Although he didn’t have the Heisman campaign that he was touted for in the pre season, quarterback Chase Daniel still lit up the college football betting boards with sparkling numbers including a 37/15 touchdown/interception ratio and a quarterback rating of 164.8.
Derrick Washington provided some diversity to the Mizzou offense as he ran for 992 yards and a whopping 17 touchdowns. Washington averaged 6.1 yards per rush. Daniel has two fantastic targets in speedster Jeremy Maclin and Mackey Award winner Chase Coffman.
Maclin had 95 catches for 1221 yards and 12 touchdowns. Coffman had 83 catches and 10 TD’s as the nation’s top tight end. Maclin is also a dangerous return man that might offer a Valero Alamo Bowl betting edge. The Northwestern Wildcats surprised the college football betting world with their strong record of 9-3 straight up.
The Wildcats bring some Valero Alamo Bowl betting momentum as they got the cash in 3 of their final 4 games. Head coach Pat Fitzgerald earned the respect of handicappers, especially when his team was a college football betting dog as they got the money in 4 out of 6 games as pups.
The Wildcats are something of a college football betting “old school” team that likes to run more than pass. Tyrell Sutton impressed college football betting fans with a 5.0 yards per carry average.
