Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Tennessee Volunteers 10/12/2019 – The Mississippi State Bulldogs visit the Tennessee Volunteers this Saturday with sportsbooks picking the latter as favorites to prevail. This is despite the fact that the Bulldogs are coming off a bye week. Mississippi State owns a 3-2 record but lost last time out. Kylin Hill and Garrett Shrader are expected to lead the Bulldogs charge anew. However, sports betting sites feel that their efforts may not be enough against the Volunteers. Mississippi State is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games on the road. Despite a terrible season, Tennessee has been able to cover the number 4 of the last 5 meeting with the Bulldogs. Mississippi State has failed to cover 6 of its last 7 on the road. 8 of those last 9 are against opponents with losing records at home.

The Bulldogs will bank on several players anew against the Volunteers. Garrett Shrader will lead the charge, the team’s leader in their rushing game. In that loss to the Tigers, he had a long run of 24 yards and ran for one touchdown. Helping out is Farrod Green who is expected to take care of the receiving yardage. He had a total of 69 yards on 3 catches. Mississippi State is likely to continue their rushing game against Tennessee although improvements need to be made. Against Auburn, they rushed the ball a total of 38 times for a total of 118 yards. The Bulldogs will also have to work on their defensive end. They gave up 18 completions out of 24 attempts, something that they cannot afford against the Tennessee.
Players to watch: Garrett Shrader QB 40 CMP 68 ATT 511 YDS 58.8 CMP% 7.5 AVG 47 LNG 2 TD 1 INT; Kylin Hill RB 108 ATT 596 YDS 5.5 AVG 22 LNG; Nick Gibson RB 8 ATT 57 YDS 7.1 AVG 19 LNG; Osirus Mitchell WR 19 REC 277 YDS 14.6 AVG 35 LNG; Dedrick Thomas WR 9 REC 131 YDS 14.6 AVG 26 LNG
With a lone win to show in 5 games, another win could happen for the Volunteers this weekend. That all depends on how Jarrett Guaratano can get things together. So far, he has passed for 750 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions for the Volunteers. They will need top performances from players like Ty Chandler and Juauan Jennings too. Chandler is the leading rusher for the Volunteers while Jennings leads in receptions. Theo Jackson is expected to step up in defense as well, leading the team with 33 tackles in total. The offense of the Volunteers has been branded mediocre, meaning they need more to earn some respect. That could finally go down against the Bulldogs this Saturday.
Players to watch: Jarrett Guarantano QB 61 CMP 98 ATT 750 YDS 62.2 CMP% 7.7 AVG 54 LNG 7 TD 4 INT; Ty Chandler RB 59 ATT 320 YDS 5.4 AVG 53 LNG; Eric Gray RB 43 ATT 170 YDS 4 AVG 16 LNG; Jauan Jennings WR 26 REC 395 YDS 15.2 AVG 51 LNG; Marquez Callaway WR 13 REC 259 YDS 19.9 AVG 73 LNG
