Mississippi State is the top-ranked team in the country with a 9-0 SU and 5-4 ATS record, which is important to consider when making your Week 12 college football betting picks, as it comes off a 45-16 victory over UT Martin as 45-point home favorites last Saturday. The Bulldogs are on the verge of tying the program record of 13 consecutive wins, which would be the second-longest win streak in the country behind defending national champion Florida State. Mississippi State is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games versus a team with a winning record.
The Bulldogs have a legitimate Heisman Trophy contender in quarterback Dak Prescott, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines, as he’s accounted for 29 overall touchdowns. He has recorded a passing or rushing touchdown in 11 consecutive games, while also establishing a school-record with nine 200-yard passing games in a single season.
Alabama has rattled off four consecutive wins since suffering its only loss of the 2014 campaign, as it returns home after picking up a 20-13 overtime victory over the LSU Tigers as 6.5-point favorites in Week 11. The Crimson Tide have registered 24 sacks on the season and entered their last game ranked 34th nationally and fifth in the Southeastern Conference in that all-important category. Butkus Award semifinalist Reggie Ragland leads the squad with 69 total tackles, including 13 last time out in Baton Rouge. Alabama has gone UNDER the betting total in its last four contests versus teams with a winning record.
The Crimson Tide have a major offensive weapon in wide receiver Amari Cooper, who is now the all-time leader in school history with 2,951 receiving yards. Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin has made him the focal point on a weekly basis—leading directly to Cooper entering this high-profile matchup with 79 catches and 1,215 yards. It’s important to keep an eye on the injury report throughout the week, with running back T.J. Yeldon dealing with a knee issue, as he’s sixth on the program’s all-time list with 3,029 rushing yards.
Sports bettors will likely back the Crimson Tide due to the home team covering the number in the last four meetings in this series.
