*3 Star Free Pick* The Georgia Bulldogs host the Mississippi Bulldogs on Saturday night in a big SEC showdown. Mississippi State is coming off a massive 37-7 shellacking of LSU. That was a game that got everyone’s attention.
There’s a couple reasons why I think that game makes Mississippi State’s road to a potential cover more difficult here. First, they are obviously feeling really good about themselves right now. Mississippi State celebrated for a couple days after that win, and it would be hard to not have some kind of letdown. Second, Mississippi State isn’t going to sneak up on anyone after that kind of performance. They’ll get the other teams best effort.
The public is buying into Mississippi State in a big way. 65% of bets are on Mississippi State here and that has driven this number down.
Georgia has a very strong defense, and the Bulldogs running game is elite. Mississippi State relies a lot on one player (Fitzgerald).
Maybe Mississippi State is just a lot better than I think, but this is a terrible spot for them. They have to prove it to me.
Take Georgia and lay the short number.
