This is an interesting matchup. Missouri is probably being underrated because of their “situation” but with a new/experienced quarterback and a solid D they are pretty good.
Wyoming is always a tough spot to play. They are not as talented as Mizzou, nor are they expected to really threaten in the Mountain West but in the opener at home they could be dangerous.
Mizzou is looking to get the most out of this season even though they are limited in how far they can climb.
Kelly Bryant is a good quarterback. There is a reason he was at Clemson and he was a winner there. Compared to recent Mizzou quarterbacks he is a much better runner and they will use him like that.
The Mizzou defense is always pretty stout. If this game is a blow out it is because this unit has all the answers to whatever Wyoming is throwing at them.
The number seems like a very mechanical output. Mizzou could double it and not surprise me but there does not appear to be a lot invested in it by the books.
There is not much expected from Wyoming this season. They are mid tied in the Mountain West which is far from the most imposing conference.
Last year they were second on the league in defense though and only gave up 22ppg. If that unit is strong again they will be in a lto fball games.
This is a revenge spot as they lost at Mizzou last year, 40-13. That might have been a more high powered Tigers offense though with a QB that is now in the NFL.
The offense struggled all last season and the outlook there for this season is not that great either. They want to/need to be able to tun the ball but there is not a lot returning on offense to make that work.

Wyoming only won 6 games a year ago and that number seems about right for this season too. They are not going to steal this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Mizzou -17.5
I don’t like that hook but I can see how this one becomes a blowout for the Tigers. They are the better team even if there is some transition.
The only way this one gets really interesting is if the Tigers turn it over and Wyoming can convert easily into points. They are going to have a hard time getting all the way down the field to score against Mizzou.
