St. Louis is 2-5 against the spread against the SEC, 2-10-1 against the spread in their last 13 games, and 0-5-1 against the spread in their last six neutral site games. Mississippi State is 8-3-1 against the spread against the A-10, 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games, and 3-9-1 against the spread following a win.
The total is set to the low side because this is going to be a low scoring game hat still doesn't make it to this number so my free pick is the under.
