Who We Like: Here's why I'd bet the under now. Sharps are already eating away at the number, which is why it has dropped a full point off the opening line. In LSU's last 36 neutral site games, the under is 25-11. In Mississippi State's last six games coming off a win of more than 20 points, the under cashed five times. This number is inflated with the over hitting in 10 of the last 12 meetings between these two teams. I see a defensive struggle between these two teams tonight in St. Louis.
