College Football Betting: Missouri vs. Arizona State Odds Preview

Missouri Tigers vs. Arizona State Sun Devils PicksFriday, September 9

Arizona ST. over Missouri by 11

While our database reminds us that the Tigers come roaring out of the gates in road openers (4-0 SU and ATS), points out that the striped ones failed to gain 300 yards in last week’s 17-6 uninspiring home opening win over Miami Ohio.

And while we do expect a more focused effort from Gary Pinkel’s boys tonight in Tempe, we can’t recommend backing this bunch until they get their offensive act together sans Blaine Gabbert.

As it is, Mizzou is just 1-3 SU versus the Pac-10 (now Pac-12 and soon to be Pac-16) while the Sun Devils are a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS against the Big 12 (now with 10 teams and soon to be disbanded) with all three wins coming by 18 or more points.

Confused yet? Well, there’s nothing head-scratching about ASU’s 4-0 ATS log in Game Two of the betting season.

And we certainly worship the Sun Devils’ 4-0 ATS mark in the second of back-to-back home games. Despite just 11 total starters back, this could be Dennis Erickson’s best squad since he came to the desert in 2007: seven starters return – including the entire line – to an offense that averaged 32 PPG in 2010.

No reason to play Devil’s advocate in this one. Lay it AND play it.

The current betting line is Arizona State -7½ against Missouri and the total is 53½.

Trends to consider:
Missouri is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Missouri's last 5 games on the road
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Missouri's last 7 games
Missouri is 13-6 SU in its last 19 games on the road
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Arizona State's last 5 games
Arizona State is 5-2 SU in its last 7 games at home
Arizona State is 4-1-1 ATS in its last 6 games
Arizona State is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games
