College Football Betting Trends
The Bulldogs have hit the under in seven of their last nine against a winning team and in 11 of their last 16 games at home.
Kansas State has hit the under in seven of its last eight games in September and in 11 of its last 16 overall.
This should be a good, physical battle between two Power-5 programs that are looking to crack the top 25 rankings. It’s one of the better games on paper this weekend. K-State wants to run the ball, but I can see that being a problem against this Mississippi State defensive front in Starkville. I think the Bulldogs will also have some problems moving the ball on the Wildcats, as both teams will have to really grind out drives to score. For that reason, I like the under in what should be a physical football game.
