For whatever reason, oddmakers continue to downplay the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Miss State has more than proven itself as a quality football team that can win on the road. Meanwhile, Texas A&M continues to allow teams to hang around and has been shaky at times. I'll gladly take the more consistent team and the free touchdown.
