Cotton Bowl Betting Odds & Picks: Missouri Vs Ohio State


Given that so many very good teams are involved in bowl games that are not part of the playoffs, it’s going to be fun to see how things look with a 12-team postseason starting next year.

For now, we are going to need to be happy with a few powerhouse teams playing in game that, in the grand scheme of things, don’t really mean that much. The fact of the matter is that barely missing out on the playoffs is a bitter pill to swallow, and it can explain why some of the better teams come out a little flat once bowl season rolls around. It can be too easy for players to simply shut down after realizing that the dream of a National Championship is over. That is going to be something to keep an eye on with this game, with the Ohio State Buckeyes one of the teams that missed out by the slimmest margin. The Buckeyes are favored by 1, with the O/U set at 49.

Missouri Tigers

All things considered it was a very good regular season for the Missouri Tigers. They went 10-2, with their losses coming against Georgia and LSU, both of whom were very good teams. The Tigers were certainly a fun team to watch, especially on the offensive side of the football, where they put up some very good numbers. They are probably going to need to score a lot in this one to keep pace with the Buckeyes, which means we could well be looking at a bit of a shootout. In terms of winning, the Tigers have been a good bet in Friday games, going 6-2 SU in their last 8 Friday night appearances. They are also 10-3 SU in their last 12 games against the Big Ten. While they have covered the spread in 5 of their last 6 overall, the Tigers are just 1-8 ATS in the month of December. The OVER has hit in 7 of their last 10 games.



Ohio State Buckeyes

The Buckeyes came into the season as one of the favorites to head to the playoffs, but it all went wrong for them in the final game of the regular season, as they once again lost to Michigan and saw their biggest rivals head to the postseason for the 3rd straight year. For the Buckeyes, it was essentially playoffs or bust, so you do have to wonder about their mindset ahead of this one. Will they look at this bowl game as a shot at some form of redemption, or will they look at it as a game they’d sooner not be playing in? The Buckeyes have struggled against SEC opposition, going 2-7 SU in their last 9 meetings, but they are a good bet against the spread, going 7-1 in their last 8 Friday night appearances. The UNDER has hit in 7 of their last 9 overall.


Cotton Bowl Score Prediction Missouri Vs Ohio State

While I think the Missouri Tigers will be more up for this game than the Buckeyes, I still think the superior talent of Ohio State will eventually shine through. I am on the Buckeyes to win and cover, plus I also like the OVER.
