TheSpread.com betting matchup advantage:
TheSpread.com betting matchup has Missouri as a –14 point favorite. Our Free College Football Bowl Pick is: UNDER 66.5. Missouri’s offense can light up the scoreboard, but the Wildcats have had issues moving the ball at times this year and their defense isn’t that bad. Missouri could take a decent sized lead and try to run at the clock in the second half. This is just too many points for a game that doesn’t feature two dynamic offenses and one decent defense.
