The Line: Mississippi State -11.5
Bet On Miss State Because…
Mississippi State had their winning streak snapped in last week’s heartbreaking 31-24 loss against top-ranked Alabama, but the Bulldogs actually came out of that affair looking more impressive than they did before that matchup started while covering the chalk as a 14.5-point home underdog. Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald rushed for one score and running back Aeris Williams looked great against Alabama’s defense by rushing for 97 yards and two touchdowns.
More importantly, Mississippi State’s defense registered an impressive five sacks against dual-threat quarterback Jalen Hurts before giving up the game-winning TD pass with just seconds remaining in regulation.
Bet On Arkansas Because…
Arkansas got smacked around pretty good in their humbling 33-10 loss to now, No. 21 LSU last weekend and failed to cover the spread as an 18-point road dog in the process. The Razorbacks lost for the fourth time in their last six games and have allowed at least 33 points in each of their last six games. Arkansas has given up 41 points or more in three of their last six games while getting held to 10 points or less twice in that span.
Miss State Vs Arkansas Betting Predictions
65 percent of public bettors like Mississippi State in this contest and I believe that’s easily the right call with Arkansas giving up a whopping 35.8 points per game this season and Mississippi State limiting the opposition to less than 20 points per game. The Bulldogs have plenty of motivation to get the win and keep their big-time bowl game hopes alive while Arkansas is just playing out the string in what could very well be Brett Bielema’s final season with the Razorbacks.
Mississippi State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 conference games while Arkansas is a winless 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Bulldogs win and cover the chalk as slightly less than two touchdown road favorites!
