Two loss Mississippi State is back into the race for the SEC West. Mississippi State still plays Alabama and Ole Miss. If they beat those two teams, they could end up with only 2 losses and would most likely win the tie breaker with Alabama or Ole Miss for the SEC West title. But first, Mississippi State needs to beat a tough Missouri team on the road this Thursday night.

Why Bet On #24 Mississippi State (-7.5) to Beat Missouri
Brock Huard has tabbed Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott as one of the best signal-callers in the country.
Heisman Trophy voters aren’t paying any attention to Bulldogs’ QB Dak Prescott. That’s too bad. They think way too much about stats when they should be thinking about leadership and stats.
Prescott is a senior quarterback that is playing behind a brand new offensive line. His stats are impeccable. He’s thrown 14 touchdowns to only 1 interception. He’s completing 66.5% of his passes. He’s rushed for 371 yards and 7 touchdowns. Prescott leads Mississippi State in rushing yards, passing yards, and touchdowns. He’s the only reason that the Bulldogs are in position to win the SEC West. He might be the best quarterback in the country.
Why Bet On Missouri to Beat #24 Mississippi State
Missouri’s defense can shut down Mississippi State’s offense.
Prescott is going to have his hands full this Thursday night when he takes on Missouri’s defense. The Tigers have a terrible offense. It only generates 14.9 points and 277.6 yards per game. But the Mizzou defense is terrific.
Missouri has given up 20 points or more only 3 times this season. The Tigers’ D is allowing 282.1 yards and 12.5 points per game. Missouri has the ability to really frustrate opposing offenses. When it does, it can put the team into a good position to win.
Unfortunately for Mizzou, Dak Prescott is rarely flustered and he almost never makes a mistake. The Mississippi State QB will take what the Missouri defense gives him. My final score prediction is Mississippi State 13, Missouri 7.
