Missouri vs. Kansas: Point spread and odds on winning You've got to love the end of college football season. And hardly any other game will come even close to the action when No.3 Missouri (10-1) meets the No.2 Kansas (11-0) this Saturday. What's on this game - well, for starter, each of the teams has a shot at the Big 12 title, Kansas sitting atop of the Big 12 North and Missouri right behind them. Will Kansas be able to remain unbeaten in twelve straight games this season? The online bookmaker Bodog Sports thinks so and has posted the point spread on the Missouri vs. Kansas game at -1 point chalk the Jayhawks. The Internet betting firm Bookmaker is also favoring Kansas with odds -130 and Missouri are underdog with betting money line +110.

 Both Kansas and Missouri work with very powerful offenses - the Jayhawks pack 507.4 yards per game and the Tigers are edging on them with 520.5 yards on average, ranking both college football teams in the top 10 in NCAA by total offense. But home advantage is not the only thing working for Kansas this weekend. Missouri's defense needs some serious hole-plugging, after allowing 391 yards per game, compared to Kansas with only 318.5 yards. Similar situation in the points allowed - Missouri allows 23 points on average per game, while Kansas only 14.2 points. As far as injuries are concerned - both teams will come out healthy, Missouri playing without safety Cornelius Brown and for Kansas questionable remain OL Anthony Collins and DB Kendrick Harper.

 Keeping up with tradition not to choose a pick in the end of college football season, keep in mind that, although both teams have won their last five games, Kansas is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games and Missouri is 5-2 against the spread in its last 7 games.
