College Football Betting Odds:
Mississippi State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs come into this matchup with a 6-3 record that ranks them 5th overall in the SEC. With a 4-1 record in their last 5, it’s safe to say that the Bulldogs are building momentum. However, with a 2-3 record in conference play so far this season, it’s looking like they’re already in too big of a hole in the SEC. Furthermore, with an 0-10 record in their last 10 matchups against Mississippi State, it’s clear that no one is picking them to win this weekend’s contest.
Players to Watch: Nick Fitzgerald (1,252 passing yards, 10 TD, 7 INT), Kylin Hill (536 rushing yards, 3 TD, 6.6 AVG), and Osirus Mitchell (347 receiving yards, 3 TD, 20 REC).
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Crimson Tide rush into this weekend’s SEC contest sporting a 9-0 record that ranks them as the best team in the SEC West. Naturally, Alabama is undefeated in SEC play this season and has no plans to lose their first conference matchup against Mississippi State. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Bama has a decisive advantage. Although both sides match up pretty well on defense, with the Bulldogs giving up 12.3 per game and Alabama allotting 14.1 to their opponents per outing. However, the Tide’s offense is averaging a whopping 51.3 per game while Mississippi State is struggling to put up 29.1. If these numbers pan out come Saturday, then the Bulldogs will surely find themselves on the losing end of a blowout.
Players to Watch: Tua Tagovailoa (2,361 passing yards, 27 TD, 1 INT), Najee Harris (572 rushing yards, 4 TD, 6.8 AVG), and Jerry Jeudy (880 receiving yards, 10 TD, 39 REC).
