Bet on NCAAFCollege football odds for Friday will feature an intriguing inter-conference college football betting matchup between 25th ranked Missouri and home standing Nevada. College football odds players would be wise not to think that Mizzou can automatically win in a college football betting cakewalk as Nevada may prove to be a dangerous dog.
Already this year we have seen Big 12 teams be humiliated against the college football odds by non-BCS teams including Colorado suffering back-to-back losses to Colorado State and Toledo along with Oklahoma State losing to Houston. Just 2 Friday Nights prior to this game Toledo crushed Colorado in a much anticipated home game to serve as a college football betting reminder that mid major teams are often dangerous home dogs against BCS teams, especially with the national TV cameras focused upon them. The Missouri Tigers have an online betting record of 3-0 straight up and 2-1 against the spread. Last week Mizzou crushed Furman 52-12 as 34-point chalks against the college football odds. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert had another strong performance against the college football odds as he was 17-25 for 256 yards with 3 touchdown passes. Mizzou ranks 21st overall in the nation for points scored and their defense is much improved as it ranks 21st overall for points allowed. Gabbert is hitting on 68% of his passes and has 8 touchdown passes with 0 interceptions with 747 yards for a phenomenal start against the college football odds.
Nevada has gotten off to a slow start against the college football odds with a mark of 0-2 both straight up and against the spread. Last week the Wolfpack lost to Colorado State 20-35 as 5-point road dogs against the college football odds. The Wolfpack rank a dreadful 115th in scoring and 110th in points allowed. This matchup is their home opener.
Mizzou has gone 12-4 against the college football odds in their last 16 non conference games but the Wolfpack have proven to be a tough commodity at home with a mark of 21-8 against the spread as a host. Nevada has gotten the cash in just 1 out of their last 7 non-conference games.
