College Basketball Betting Trends

Louisiana State

The Tigers are 5-0 ATS in their last five road games. LSU is 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 SEC games.

Mississippi State

The Bulldogs are 4-1 ATS in their last five Wednesday games. Mississippi State is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games versus a team with a winning road record.

Prediction:

The Bulldogs might not be the ranked team here, but they certainly matchup well with LSU. The Tigers showed vulnerability last game at home and now face a much better team on the road. There is something to an unranked team being favored over a ranked opponent and I'm going with that philosophy here.
