Mississippi State is struggling as of late. The Bulldogs faced off against an undefeated Auburn team, were shocked by Alabama on the road, and lost a heartbreaker to LSU on the road. Mississippi State needs their home court more than anything and they’ve got it for this one. Missouri hasn’t played too many road games as of late but in their most recent one, the Tigers took a loss to Kentucky. I expect Mississippi State to shoot better and rebound better. They’ll come away with the victory. Bulldogs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400. Final Score Prediction, Mississippi State Bulldogs win and cover ATS 75-62.
