Vegas has placed the Cornhuskers as -7½(-110) point college football picks favorites at home.
Mizzou, after defeating then #1 Oklahoma 36-27, is in first place in the north division of the Big 12 and is as surprising as any team in college football. The Tigers feature a ferocious defense, ranked fourth nationally in points against with an average of 13.1 per game, and an offense that scores 34 points per game. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert handles the controls and has thrown for 1,899 yards and 11 touchdowns. Gabbert was especially impressive in last week’s game with over 300 yards passing and a TD. Mizzou also racked-up 178 yards rushing and “contained’ Oklahoma to 27 points on the board.
Nebraska0 rebounded from the 20-13 loss to Texas but outgunning Oklahoma State 51-41. Even giving-up so many points, the Huskers is ranked in the top 20 nationally, averaging less than 18 points against. Nebraska’s offense, one of the top units in the country, is run by Taylor Martinez, who, like Cam Newton in Auburn, is a double-threat to run or pass, gaining a combined 1,916 yards with 20 touchdowns. Niles Paul is his leading receiver and Roy Helu, Jr. provides run support.
Mizzou is 1-15 in Lincoln but defeated the Cornhuskers 52-17 in 2008 so recent history is on their side but this is a game Nebraska should and will take. Look for the Huskers to cover the score and win big at home in today's college football picks contest.
