Auburn is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games, 5-2 against the spread in their last seven home games, and 3-12 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread. Mississippi State is 6-2-1 against the spread following a loss, 6-20-1 against the spread in their last 27 road games, and 1-9-1 against the spread following a double-digit home loss. The home team is 6-1-1 against the spread in the last eight meetings of these two.
I really like Auburn here but this is just way more points than it should be as the line is closer to 5.5 or six so I will take the points with Mississippi State.
