College football odds players were equally impressed about the rapid rise of the Missouri Tigers in the BCS after their payout at Texas A&M with the college football lines.
Mizzou will host Oklahoma in Saturday’s biggest game. The BCS standings have Oklahoma the top ranked team in the land with Mizzou ranked at 11th. This game will kickoff at 8 PM Eastern with a telecast on ABC. Sports-Gambling opened with Oklahoma as a 3.5 point road favorite.
Oklahoma has a college football betting record of 6-0 straight up and 3-3 against the spread as the Sooners are coming off a 52-0 blowout home win and payoff last week against Iowa State.
OU’s defense is the strength of the team as it ranks 17th nationally while the offense also ranks 17th in the nation led by quarterback Landry Jones, who has already passed for 1791 yards.
Running back DeMarco Murray offers balance with 663 yards and Ryan Broyles has 700 yards receiving. Wins over Florida State, Air Force, Cincinnati, and Texas are the body of work that put OU on top of the BCS.
The Missouri Tigers answered their skeptics last week with an impressive college football gambling win at payout of 30-9 over Texas A&M. Mizzou is led by quarterback Blaine Gabbert and their 19th ranked passing attack.
Missouri’s 2nd ranked scoring defense is looks to be the best in coach Gary Pinkel’s 11 years on the job and that is what ultimately makes them a dangerous home dog. In the past the Tigers have lacked the defense to make them a complete team but that doesn’t appear to be the case this year.
An overflow homecoming crowd will be on hand for this one at “The Zou.”
The road team has beaten the college football odds in 4 out of the last 5 meetings between these two teams. Oklahoma has paid out in just 3 of their last 11 games when coming off a straight up win but Mizzou is just 4-10 against the spread versus teams with winning records.
OU has gone under the total in 14 out of their last 20 games while Mizzou has gone under in 11 out of their last 14 games that follow a payout versus the spread.
