Is this the year that Colorado finally gets the win against Missouri on the college football betting line?
The Colorado team is really upset about their losing streak to Missouri but we have heard this before. The Buffaloes have lost by a combined 177-40 against Missouri in the last four seasons. The college football lines are predicting another blowout as Missouri is favored by double digits at the Sbg sportsbook.
So What – So the Colorado players are upset about the losing streak. They were upset last year too and still got routed. The Buffaloes lost 36-17 and trailed 33-3 at one point.
Colorado is Better but so is Missouri – The Buffaloes look better than they were last season. The Buffs are 3-1 and are coming off a win over Georgia. The Bulldogs look down so how good that win is debatable. The Buffs won’t play Missouri for a few years because they are moving to the Pac-10 next season. This will be Colorado’s last chance for a while to exact revenge on Missouri but getting it won’t be easy.
Tigers are Unbeaten – Missouri comes into this game at 4-0 but we still don’t know just how good the Tigers are. They really haven’t beaten anyone of note. They did move into the Top 25 this week. They are a 13-point favorite on the college football betting line in this game against Colorado and the total is listed at 52. The game should get some action at the sportsbook since it is being televised on FSN.
What do the Numbers Say? The Buffaloes are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and they are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games. Colorado is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog. Missouri is just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and they suck at home. The Tigers are just 3-11 ATS in their last 14 home games. The numbers point to Colorado except for one glaring trend. The Buffaloes are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings against Missouri.
Perhaps the total is worth a look. The last four Colorado games when they were getting points went over the total. Four of the last five meetings in this series have gone over.
