Randy’s Free Pick
The TCU Horned Frogs are playing the better ball by far as we’re watching Miss State fall apart rapidly. However, this line is this way for a reason, and Mississippi State has shown us flashes of great ball this year. At home, Miss State still wins by an average of 12.5 points and allows 38.7 percent shooting. I’ll take the bucket.
