Mississippi State bounced back after suffering its first loss of the year, as it picked up a 51-0 victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores as 29.5-point home favorites last week, while going UNDER the betting total for a second consecutive affair. The Bulldogs are seeking their first seven-win SEC season in school history, which can’t be ignored when making your college football betting picks, while they’ve captured four of five Egg Bowls under the direction of head coach Dan Mullen. Mississippi State is 5-2 SUATS in games with a betting line of +3 to -3 the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 4-3 in that situation.
The Rebels are led by dual-threat quarterback Dak Prescott offensively, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting odds, as he’s been responsible for a school-record 35 touchdowns. Mississippi State also leads the nation in red zone defense, with opponents scoring on just 22 of 37 trips inside the 20 yard line. The main player to watch on that side of the football is defensive end Preston Smith, who leads the conference in tackles for loss.
Ole Miss is 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS in its last four affairs, as it returns home off an embarrassing 30-0 setback to the Arkansas Razorbacks as three-point road favorites last week, while going UNDER the betting total of 46. The Rebels are bowl eligible for the third straight season under Hugh Freeze, as they look to knock their in-state rival out of the college football playoff rankings in this matchup. Ole Miss is 4-7 SU and 3-8 ATS in November since the start of the 2012 campaign, with the OVER going 6-4 in that situation.
The Rebels have struggled to move on since losing two key starters this season, as linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche and wide receiver Laquon Treadwell both went down with season-ending injuries. Ole Miss leads the nation in allowing just 13.5 points per game, which has been helped in tallying 19 interceptions through 11 games.
Sports bettors will likely back the Bulldogs due to their 14-9 ATS mark as a favorite the last two-plus seasons.
