We preview Saturday's contest between Kentucky and Missouri in search of beatting value and capper Troy West seems to have found the best college football pick for this matchup.

Mizz Basically Embarrassed at Home
Missouri is the worst 3-0 team in the history of college football, for at least this year. What a disgraceful bunch of bums that showed up last Saturday as a 21.5 College Football Odds favorites against a Uconn team that couldn't play dead last season. To win by a measly score of 9-6, was not only a slap to every Mizzou alumni but it may have just set the program back 5 years. Gary Pinkle should be fired we are calling for his head. You should be ashamed of the way your team performed Mr. Pinkle. The hometown Tiger fans avoided a massive Jones town suicide massacre because a backup QB for Conn threw a late pick in the end zone that insured a narrow Missouri win. Expect worse things to happen to this group of shit shows we call the Missouri Tigers.  

We aren't here to talk up Kentucky either, but they played a much better team and got a moral victory. So Coach Stoops really has that defense playing high caliber football in Lexington, Ky. Unfortunately the offense sputters often. They managed a poultry 3 FGS all game long against a pretty stout UF defense. This was actually not that surprising. Kentucky will have to find the end zone if it hopes to beat Missouri. There really is no reason to believe Kentucky will light up the score board this week. They have to use there defense to set up good field position and try to win late with there kicker.  

Missouri (3-0) hasn’t had any problems against Kentucky (2-1) since joining the SEC, winning three straight – all by double digits. Look for a possible change in this trend folks! It hasn’t been an easy run so far for the Tigers, but they’re still unbeaten as they dive into SEC play. The Wildcats are coming off a rough loss to Florida, and effectively need this win to stay alive in the East. 

About as unimpressive a 3-0 as it gets, Mizzou couldn’t do anything offensively against Connecticut and struggled on the road against Arkansas State. The ground game isn’t working, the points aren’t coming, and it’s been a grind – but 3-0 is 3-0. With winnable games against South Carolina and Florida up next at home, the Tigers just need to survive and advance.
Just when it seemed like Kentucky was going to make some noise, it sputtered and coughed in a 14-9 loss to Florida. The offense hasn’t worked, but with a win over South Carolina two weeks ago, the Wildcats are still in the SEC East chase. With a rough road stretch of three away games in four weeks coming up later, they have to take advantage of every home game they get.

 

College Football Odds & Predictions
This is unprecedented territory for APW to not even tell you to take a side in this affair. We will still make a College Football Pick on the game, but we strongly urge a Max bet on the UNDER in this game. Do not expect either team to wake up offensively. This game will be a snooze fest. You can take a nap during most of it. Will give Kentucky the nod for the win. Kentucky 17  Mizz 10.
