NCAA FREE PICK: Take Mississippi State. According to latest college basketball trends, the home team is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the Gators are just 2-6 against the number in their last eight games versus the Bulldogs and 0-5 ATS in their last five road games against Mississippi State. The Bulldogs have lost three straight games by at least 15 points, including a 96-70 loss to Arkansas on Wednesday. But look for Mississippi State to have plenty of motivation to stay with a top 10 team on its home court. The Gators have been highly impressive in SEC play this season and there's a very good chance that they're going to start 6-0 in the conference. But it's difficult to routinely beat teams by 15-plus points every time out, especially on the road. Look for the Bulldogs to stay within 20 and cover the large spread.
