Missouri has won four games in a row, including a 34-27 victory over the Texas A&M Aggies as 3.5-point road underdogs last Saturday, while capturing the statistical battle by at least 62 yards in its last three contests. The Tigers have won nine consecutive road games, which is important to consider when making your Week 13 NCAA football betting picks, as they look to continue establishing the run. Junior running back Russell Hansbrough had a career-high 199 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries last time out. Missouri is 6-0 ATS in its last six November games.
The Tigers also need to be respected on the defensive end, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NCAA football betting lines, as Shane Ray continues to lead the Southeastern Conference in sacks and tackles-for-loss. Senior defensive lineman Markus Golden has also gotten in on the fund, as he racked up two sacks and had a career-best nine tackles against the Aggies.
Tennessee has won and covered the number in back-to-back games, including a 50-16 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats as 11.5-point home favorites last week, while going OVER the betting total for a third consecutive affair. The Volunteers have recorded consecutive 500-plus offensive yard games for the first time since Nov. 2012, with signal-caller Joshua Dobbs being the biggest reason for those numbers. He has tallied 1,079 total yards of offense in his last three starts—accounting for seven passing and four rushing touchdowns. Tennessee is 3-8 ATS in its last 11 games versus teams with a winning record.
The Volunteers have been pleased by the production they’ve received from running back Jalen Hurd, who has ran for 100 or more yards three times this season—the first true freshman to accomplish that feat since 1997. Tennessee has a big-time leader on the defensive end in linebacker A.J. Johnson, who has become the first player within the program to have three straight seasons of 100-plus tackles since the mid-1970s.
Sports bettors will likely back the Tigers due to their 12-2 ATS mark in their last 14 road games.
