LSU -18.5 O/U 62
The 2nd ranked LSU Tigers hit the road for a SEC matchup against the Mississippi State Bulldogs. LSU comes into this game with a record of 6-0 and 2-0 in conference play. The Tigers are coming off a huge double digit 42-28 win over Florida. Mississippi State comes into this game with a 3-3 record and 1-2 in the SEC. The Bulldogs enter this game on a losing streak of two games. The Bulldogs were upset at Tennessee 20-10 on Saturday.
LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is off to an outstanding start for this LSU offense. Burrow has completed nearly 80% of his pass attempts(148/186) for 2,157 yds. He has thrown 25 TD’s and 3 INT’s on the season. Clyde Edwards-Helaire leads the backfield with 7 rushing TD’s. He has rushed for 494 yds this season. Wide receiver’s Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase each have 8 receiving touchdowns on the year. Jefferson has 40 receptions and 670 yds on the season. The leading tackler is Jacob Phillips with 44.
Mississippi State used two quarterbacks last week in their loss to Tennessee. Garrett Shrader and Tommy Stevens combined to throw for 146 yds on 11/21 passing. The two combined to throw 1 TD and 3 INT’s. Running back Kyle Hill has 609 rushing yds on the season and has 5 scores on the ground. Osirus Mitchell has 4 receiving TD’s on the season to go along with 335 yds. The Bulldogs leader in tackles is C.J. Morgan, he has totaled 45tackles.
LSU has had no problem scoring on offense this year. The Bulldogs are coming off a bad loss to Tennessee, where Tennessee shut down the Bulldogs offense. The under has been very profitable in Mississippi State games in recent years. The under has been a hair more profitable when LSU is a road team since 2017. With Mississippi State’s offense being questionable at Tennessee last week, I’m going to take the under in this game. Final score prediction, LSU wins 42-17.
