Mississippi State

The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Mississippi State is 1-4-1 ATS in its last six home games.


Mississippi is on quite the roll lately and despite winning against a lot of subpar competition, the victory over Auburn validates that the Rebels are on the right path. Ole Miss comes into this contest with a ton of confidence and an offense that is basically just as good as MSU's, if only a touch behind. While the Rebels aren't as good defensively, I think they'll step up considering it's a rivalry game. I'm going with the visitors here.
