College Football Betting Trends

Kansas State

The Wildcats are 5-1 against the spread in their last six against winning teams and 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games.

Mississippi State

The Bulldogs are 13-3 against the spread in their last 16 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 non-conference games.

Prediction:

This is a good matchup of two under-the-radar Power-5 programs. Mississippi State dominated this game last year at K-State, picking up a 31-10 win. Neither team has really been tested yet, but the Bulldogs have played slightly better competition. I think K-State is going to run into some trouble running the ball effectively against this Mississippi State defensive front. The Bulldogs will look to force the Wildcats into being a passing team, which is where K-State will struggle. I think Mississippi State has the better athletes and better potential as a team. I will go with the Bulldogs to cover at home.
