Even though the Tigers are unbeaten, they are underdogs in college football betting at Texas A&M in a game that can be seen on FSN.
Unbeaten Tigers – Missouri is 5-0 on the season and 1-0 in the Big 12. They are ranked 21st in the country and led by quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Missouri is a 3 point underdog at SBG and the total on the game is 55.5. Gabbert leads an offense that is averaging 35.4 points per game.
Tough Three-Game Stretch – Okay, the Tigers are unbeaten but now are when we will find out if they are really any good. They have Texas A&M this week and then games against Oklahoma at home and Nebraska on the road. The Tigers have not started a season at 6-0 since 2006 but if they win at A&M on Saturday they will stay perfect.
Tough Luck Aggies – The Aggies are 3-2 on the season and 0-1 in the Big 12. They have lost their last two games by a combined 10 points. Their quarterback Jerrod Johnson is up and down as he has seven TDs but nine interceptions in the last three games.
Last Team to Score Wins? The Aggies are in the top 20 in yards per game but they are second in the country in turnovers. They should move the ball against Missouri and there is no doubt that the Tigers will score. Shouldn’t this total be in the 60’s? Missouri has a good defense but they have really not played anyone of note. Their toughest opponent to date was probably Illinois. It is not like A&M is great but they are a good home team and they do provide a solid test for the Tigers.
