Missouri vs. Illinois Betting Odds

Missouri vs. Illinois betting odds were available at BetUS.com.  The Illinois Illini were getting the second most betting action of any other College Football team heading into Saturday although the Crimson Tide vs. Hokies game would likely be the most wagered on overall by day's end.

BetUS.com was the only book we could find offering Illinois as a -7 favorite, which is really great if you're planning to bet on Missouri.  Illinois bettors can check out the Online Sportsbook section at Gambling911.com to find a gambling site that matches all your betting needs.

This is a good game to bet on based on plenty of past head-to-head history between these two teams.  Missouri has won the last 4 games and the last 3 by 6 or more points. 

Missouri vs. Illinois betting odds trends include:

The Tigers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

Tigers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in September.
Fighting Illini are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.
Fighting Illini are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.
For a change, it's Illinois bringing all the star power to the neutral-site opener against Missouri. For the first time in a long while, it's the Tigers who are untested and unappreciated.

Missouri is starting over, in a sense, coming off a 10-4 record and heading into coach Gary Pinkel's ninth season. Virtually all the headliners are gone from teams that combined for 22 victories, two bowl triumphs and a brief stay at No. 1 during the heyday of a high-flying spread offense featuring quarterback Chase Daniel and receiver Jeremy Maclin.

Besides losing their nucleus, the Tigers had to replace both coordinators, an offshoot of all that success. Yet Pinkel is confident he'll field a team that can compete for a third straight Big 12 North title, rather than the third-place finish that's been forecast.

"You think our fans care whether we lost one or two starters or 10 starters?" Pinkel said. "I don't care. We have high expectations and we want to play the best we can. Youth or lack of experience to me is absolutely insignificant."

Sorry folks, this game has a Missouri cover written all over it, hence the reason why we like that +7 line at BetUS.com.
