228 MISSOURI -13
This season started amazingly good for Missouri, their last regular season game was a prove that they deserved to be taken into consideration but it wasn’t enough for them to handle. Northwestern is ranked No. 23 with a record of 9-3 and Missouri ranked No.21 with a record of 9-4 (they actually had the shot to go for the BCS Championship). By the way Missouri played the whole season it seems to me they will have no problem whatsoever against northwestern, Mizz numbers are impressive and they were ranked higher, they lost some key games and that brought them down a little bit;they played their hearts out and as a result of that they got a spot to play northwestern which they quietly won a lot of games and showed great running and passing game, certainly not as good as mizz but just good enough to beat their rivals. The question remains, Will northwestern be able to beat missouri?, and the answer is NO but they won’t cover the spread, that is why my pick is Northwestern +13.
