LINE: Missouri -17.5, o/u: 55.5
ATS PICK: Missouri
Can Wyoming score?
It’s a home game for Craig Bohl’s Cowboys, and they should be able to battle hard and come up with a few nice moments, but unless it’s playing a bottom-feeder Mountain West team, this O just hasn’t worked over the last few seasons.
And now it has to play an SEC team.
Call this an elitist pick, but America thinks this way, too. The line opened up at Mizzou -14, has gone up to 18, and is around 17.5 across the board. And why?
Wyoming scored fewer than 20 points seventies last season, and in its last five games against Power Five programs, lost 41-19 at home to Washington State last season, lost 40-13 at Missouri, lost the 2017 opener to Iowa 24-3, later got rocked at home by Oregon 49-13, and got destroyed by Nebraska in 2016 by 35.
Wyoming hasn’t beaten a Power Five program since shocking Tennessee in 2008, and hasn’t come within 17 of one since the 37-34 loss to Nebraska to open up the 2013 season.
The Tigers won’t open this up in a brutal blowout, but Kelly Bryant will be strong as Mizzou controls this throughout.
