Missouri-Alabama football: Betting odds, predictions
Missouri opened as a 26 point underdog against Alabama. As of Friday evening, the Tigers are a 29 point underdog to Alabama, according to VegasInsider.com. The total points (over/under) is 56.
Josh Matejka: As of Tuesday morning, Alabama is sitting at -27, and I can’t help but think Mizzou will cover. Yes, Alabama is going to win and probably by more than 3 touchdowns. And, yes, maybe I’m too excited about the first game of Drinkwitz’s tenure. But there seems to be an energy around the Tigers right now that ignores depth issues and fights hard against the dying of the light… or in this case, the hope of a week one victory. The fact that Missouri’s defense should be a strength helps. I can see the score being somewhere around 38-13, with Alabama pulling their starters late to make sure everyone on the depth chart gets some work in.
Nate Edwards: I currently see Alabama is at -27 (Monday evening) and I still think that’s too high. No one wants to expose any of their guys longer than they have to. So I’ll take Missouri to cover because that’s what great teams do.
Brandon Kiley: I mean, let’s be honest here. I’ll take Alabama and I’ll take them by a final score of 48-17. I think they cover the spread (Monday evening). I don’t know how Mizzou defends receivers like Jaylen Waddle or DeVonta Smith. Najee Harris is one of the best running backs in the country. Dylan Moses is a superstar at middle linebacker. Patrick Surtain II is one of the best corners Mizzou will face all season.
I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. Alabama is unbelievably talented. Mizzou is still building. This is going to be rough. Next week will be a better gauge of where Mizzou is at its rebuilding schedule.
Karen Steger: I’m not a gambler and never really understood the spread stuff. Do I think Mizzou will lose? Yeppers. Do I think they will lose by 27? Nope. So that means Mizzou will cover the spread?
Kortay Vincent: I think Mizzou will cover the -28 spread. Coming out of the gate, there have been very few extremely high scoring games, and I think that trend will continue. I by no means am picking the Tigers to win outright, but I do think they have a great opportunity to cover and make some of us a little bit of cash.
Sammy Stava: Homer pick, because why not? Alabama will NOT cover the spread. Missouri makes it interesting and hangs around for a quarter or two before Bama eventually runs away with it. In the end, it will result as an positive showing. 34-14 Tide.
