Bet on the SEC Tournament

Mississippi State dominated this series on both sides of the ball. LSU was just 29 of 72 shooting in the first meeting and 26 of 59 in the second. The Tigers just don’t have enough offense to make up for their awful defense. The Bulldogs have a good coach in Ben Howland. He will have his team ready to not overlook this poor LSU squad.
