The Mississippi State Bulldogs and Texas A&M Aggies face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Reed Arena. The Bulldogs and Aggies both need this win to help their NCAA tournament chances. 

Mississippi State Needs This Win

At this point it looks like Mississippi State is going to make the tournament, but wins here are going to really help their seeding. In the last game against Auburn, Mississippi State scored only 63 points and they ended up losing by 15 points. Josh Hubbard had a strong game putting up 23 points, three rebounds, and three assists. The Bulldogs are averaging 75 points while their defense is giving up 68.7 points per game. The defense is ranked 87th and the defense is going to need to step up here. Josh Hubbard is averaging 16.2 points while shooting 58.88 percent from the field. Mississippi State will meet South Carolina after this one.

Texas A&M Has to Win

If Texas A&M wants to make the tournament this is a game they need to win as they only have a 25 percent chance at this point of the season to make the Big Dance. In the last game against Georgia, Texas A&M gave up only 56 points and that was enough for the 14 point victory. Texas A&M is averaging 72.9 points while their defense is giving up 69.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 206th while the defense is ranked 115th. In this game the defense is going to need to step up in a big way again. Wade Taylor IV is averaging 18.2 points while shooting 35.7 percent from the field. 

Mississippi State vs Texas A&M Betting Prediction

Mississippi State and Texas A&M will be involved in a low scoring game. Texas A&M locked down with their defense in the last game and they are going to do the same again here. Mississippi State is also going to step up with their defense and I think they will have one of thier best defensive showings of the season. This game is going to be low scoring and the under is going to cash here.
