College Basketball Betting Trends
The Terriers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 versus the SEC. Woffird is 7-2 ATS in its last nine road games.
The Bulldogs are 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win. The under is 5-2 in the last seven MSU games on Wednesdays.
Wofford has had some good success through the years tripping up bigger name opponents, so the Bulldogs certainly can't take it easy here. But with how well MSU has played lately at home, I can't pull the trigger on a Terriers bet. Mississippi State is solid on both ends of the court and will look to take advantage of a Wofford squad that isn't as good defensively as it is on the offensive end. I'm taking the hosts in this spot.
