Owing to an obscene injustice do the Missouri Tigers have a 2019 rallying cry. Mizzou will begin the betting on college football season banned from post-season competition. That is because the NCAA is punishing them for some academic improprieties that pale in comparison to far more severe crimes by other programs that went unpunished. Now “Us Against the World” is the Tigers motivational fuel. Mizzou has a tricky opener on Saturday Wyoming. While the Cowboys offense has fallen short, they can still be tough enough at home. Head coach Craig Bohl has posted three consecutive non-losing seasons.

Missouri Tigers vs. Wyoming Cowboys Overview
Last season Mizzou posted a betting on college football record of 8-5 straight up, 7-6 vs. the odds, and 6-6-1 with totals. Missouri lost its bowl game to an inconsistent Oklahoma State team. Most important of all Mizzou had a tumultuous offseason. Missouri administrators fully cooperated with the NCAA. Their “reward” was severe punishment. By contrast, Wyoming was 6-6 straight up, 5-7 vs. the odds, and 4-7-1 under the total. The Cowboys failed to qualify for a bowl after doing so the previous two seasons. Head coach Craig Bohl’s team suffered from an inept offense that was a drag.
Offense Back on the Horse?
Despite having no real dynamic sports betting star weapons the belief is that Wyoming’s offense can’t be any worse than 2018. In 2016 Wyoming scored 503 points. However, the dropped to 248 points for 2018. The Cowboys defense was solid and should remain so. Of great concern is some turnover on the stop unit due to the graduations of key players.
Bryant Relaunches Career
Namely Clemson transfer quarterback Kelly Bryant is catching plenty of attention for Mizzou. Bryant lost his job to freshman sensation Trevor Lawrence last year. Specifically, he is also remembered for leading the Tigers to the College Football Playoff as a starter. And for completing 66 percent of his passes during his Clemson career. Running back Larry Roundtree (1216 YDS, 5.4 YHPC, 11 TD) is a superb complement to Bryant. Overall the offense is expected to be a major asset for Mizzou.
