As a team, Mississippi State is averaging 66.9 PPG on 41.9% shooting from the field, 30.7% from three and 62% from the foul line this season.
The Georgia Bulldogs will try to rebound from an 82-75 loss to Florida in their last matchup.

Mississippi State is 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Georgia is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the over is 9-3 in their last 12 games against a team with a winning record.
I get the case to be made for either side here, but Georgia’s been rock solid at home this season and Mississippi State’s been having issues with getting results on the road and covering for Mississippi State has been an issue in general for much of the season. Georgia stumbled against Florida last time out, but they’ve played their best at home this season and I think they get the job done here.
