Tips For Betting On Alabama Missouri – Missouri Tries To Pull Off A Massive Upset

The Missouri Tigers, in their first year as a Southeastern Conference program, have looked forward to their game with the Alabama Crimson Tide. Can they make it a memorable one?

Why Alabama Will Win

Even if you don't care for online casino games, you have to marvel at the way in which Alabama head coach Nick Saban plays his cards. The Crimson Tide manage to play with more effort and more consistency than any other team in the country, and that's why they're clearly the best team in the United States. Alabama imposes its rugged, physical style on opponents, winning the battles in the trenches with noticeable regularity. The Tide have not been pushed at all through the first six weeks of the season. They should be quite fresh for this game, and that will give them a leg up on Missouri.

It also has to be said that Missouri's normal starting quarterback, James Franklin, did not finish last week's game against Vanderbilt due to persistent and exacerbated injuries that have dogged him for most of the season. Missouri naturally has to be at full strength just to have a chance in this game. The Tigers aren't at full strength, so Alabama should be able to pounce.

The big reason why the Tigers will have such a tough time keeping pace with Alabama is that they can't throw the ball. Alabama opponents have to attack the Crimson Tide's defense by passing the ball, and Missouri's backup quarterback, Corbin Berkstresser, has not been able to push the ball down the field in the passing game... not enough, at any rate, to earn the Crimson Tide's full respect.

The Tigers' offense has been ineffective throughout the season, unable to generate many home-run plays or give defenses credible reasons to change their schemes, personnel or alignments. Unless Missouri's passing game can strike early and consistently against Alabama's secondary, the Crimson Tide will apply the screws on defense and win comfortably… even if their own offense struggles. It's hard to see how Missouri can win this game, even if Alabama plays far below its best level.

Why Missouri Will Win

When football betting gurus assess the chances of the underdog here, they will acknowledge that Alabama's visit to the Show Me State will give Missouri a full boat of momentum. The Tigers will treat this game as their national championship game, the occasion of the year and the one game they want to win more than any other. College football upsets can and do emerge when an underdog pours a disproportionate amount of energy into one game, so for that reason alone, Alabama has to be on guard. Underdog teams don’t need to be superior for a full season in order to beat one foe on one day; they only need to be better on one afternoon. If Missouri can hit a few big plays early and grab a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, who knows what can or will happen?

Who Will Win

It’s not a debate: Missouri is outmanned at every position on the field. Alabama should roll in this game, easily covering the spread.
