Missouri at Texas Pick and Preview
College Football Betting Preview
Missouri (5-1) at Texas (6-0)
Saturday, 8:00 pm Eastern – ABC
SBG Global Opening Line: Texas - 7 , Total 68
The Texas Longhorns are in the spotlight for the second consecutive week. Last week they beat #1 Oklahoma and took over the top spot in the polls this week. Now they have to face #11 Missouri who was upset by Oklahoma State last week. If Texas is able to stay at the top of the rankings no one can say they did it by facing an easy schedule like USC has done in previous seasons. The Longhorns played #1 Oklahoma last week, face #11 Missouri this week, and have #7 Texas Tech and #8 Oklahoma State after the Tigers. Saturday’s game won’t be easy for the Longhorns. They have to find a way to slow down Heisman Trophy candidate Chase Daniel and a powerful Missouri offense. Daniel did not play well last week and it cost the Tigers the game against Oklahoma State. “Put it all on me,” said Daniel, “I should have made all three of those throws. It seemed like we were a little bit off all night. For the reason, I have no idea.”
SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Texas at Home.
Texas has a Heisman Trophy candidate of their own in quarterback Colt McCoy. He has completed 79.4 percent of his passes with 17 touchdowns and just three interceptions this season. “He’s just making those plays, and he knows when something’s not working why it’s not working,” said Texas head coach Mack Brown, “Last year, we thought he got frustrated some and tried to move probably a little bit faster than he should at times because he was trying to make plays on his own.”
Texas has defeated Missouri the last four times the teams have played and won by an average of 23 points per game. Here are more College Football betting stats for Saturday’s game. The Tigers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. The Tigers are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Tigers are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games overall.
