Nebraska vs. Missouri: Point spread and college football odds

Nebraska vs. Missouri: Point spread and college football odds College football fans will have a nice mid-week break with a game featuring two college teams in the Top 25 ranking, the Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Missouri Tigers, here you will find the latest point spread and betting odds on this NCAAF game. Great matchup for a Thursday college football game, the Nebraska Cornhuskers (3-1) will travel to face off the Missouri Tigers (4-0) in a game important for both teams. Fans would remember that the last time these two college football teams met in 2008, Missouri really brought it to the Cornhuskers, beating Nebraska 52-17 on the road. Following the last year's game, one would think the Tigers would be a big favorite at home, but the odds makers have different take on this Big 12 battle.

 At the online sportsbook Bookmaker, which we often use to check the latest point spread and odds on the college football games, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are the favorite team to win, listed with odds -160, while the Missouri Tigers will come out in front of home crowd on Memorial Stadium as underdog with odds +140 on continuing their winning streak this season. The Nebraska - Missouri point spread is currently at -3 points chalk the Cornhuskers with the total expected by the sportsbook posted at 53.5 points. Clearly the odds makers are looking forward to an action-packed game and don't even consider a repeat of the score from last year. For those who are considering betting the Nebraska football or Missouri football this week, keep in mind that trends show that Nebraska is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games, but only 2-4 against the spread in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Missouri. Also worth noting is that the total has gone OVER in 4 of Missouri's last 6 games when playing Nebraska.

 Overall for these two Big 12 teams, Nebraska seems to have the upper hand defensively, leading the Big 12 in total points allowed at only 7 per game, which places them 4th overall in the NCAA. Nebraska's total defense is at 291.8 yards or 4th in the Big 12, while Missouri is allowing 358.8 yards per game (6th in Big 12) and 15.5 points per game to rank them 5th in the Big 12. And as far as points scored, the Nebraska college football team delivered 39.3 points average per game for 3rd place in the Big 12 and Missouri is scoring on average 36.8 points for 7th place on the Big 12 rankings. And finally, it appears that injuries will not be an issue at either college football team - at Nebraska only safety Rickey Thenarse remains doubtful with knee injury and in Missouri linebacker Josh Tatum is questionable nursing a back injury.
