Auburn vs. Mississppi State Pick
Is the under a safe bet for bettors on Saturday when Mississippi State hosts Auburn at 12:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bulldogs are 2.5-point home underdogs versus the Tigers while the over/under currently sits at 54.5 points. While the side hasn't moved in this matchup, the total has jumped two full points after opening at 52.5.
The Tigers have won two straight games to get to 3-2 on the year. Last week they blew out UL-Monroe 58-7 as a 32.5-point favorite, which was Auburn's fourth cover in five tries this year. The Tigers' lone failed cover came as a 1-point home favorite in a 29-16 loss to Texas A&M three weeks ago.
The Bulldogs will be coming off a bye, so they should be well-rested and prepared for the Tigers on Saturday afternoon. Mississippi State beat UMass 47-35 in its last game, but failed to cover as a 22.5-point favorite in that matchup. The Bulldogs are now 2-2 straight up and 2-2 against the spread in 2016.
OUR PICK: The under has been a great play for bettors in this matchup, covering in all four of the last four meetings between the Tigers and Bulldogs, and going 5-0 in the last five meetings when Mississippi State is the host. The under is also 6-0 in the Tigers' last six conference games and is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall. On the other side, the under is 5-1 in the Bulldogs' last six home games and is 34-16-1 in their last 51 contests versus SEC rivals.
