NCAA football gambling expectations remain high for the Nebraska Cornhuskers to be Big 12 North Champion but they must beat Mizzou with the NCAA betting lines to get that done.
The #14 Nebraska Cornhuskers will host the #6 Missouri Tigers on Saturday with kickoff time set for ABC TV at 3:30 PM Eastern. Sports-Gambling opened with Nebraska as a 7 point home favorite.
The Missouri Tigers have a NCAA football betting record of 7-0 straight up and 5-2 against the spread after their epic 36-27 win over then #1 Oklahoma last week as 3 point home dogs for their fourth payout in a row.
Mizzou’s success is based on a poised and polished quarterback in Blaine Gabbert along with its best defense in memory that ranks 5th in the nation for points allowed. The passing attack ranks 16th as Gabbert has thrown for 1899 yards to a highly talented cadre of receivers.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers got back on track with a 51-41 win at Oklahoma State last week that followed their home loss to Texas. Nebraska is now 6-1 straight up and 3-3-1 with the NCAA football odds while going over the total in 5 out of 7 games.
Taylor Martinez continues to impress at quarterback as he has 870 yards rushing and 1046 yards passing and is an electrifying game breaker threat. The defense ranks 17th in the nation for points allowed while the offense ranks 10th in scoring.
This will be the final Big 12 meeting between these hated rivals as Nebraska joins the Big Ten next year. Mizzou had won 2 in a row over Nebraska before losing last year in the 4th quarter after seemingly having the game under control.
Mizzou has failed to get the money in 10 out of their last 14 games following a straight up win. Nebraska has a NCAA football gambling record of 11-5 against the spread versus teams with a winning record.
Missouri has gone under the total in 11 out of their last 15 games that follow a payout. The favorite has covered the last 4 meetings in this series and the host has paid out in 6 of the last 8 between these two teams.
