Bet on NCAAFThe Mississippi State Bulldogs and Texas A&M Aggies are both in the Top 15 and are taking on each other this Saturday afternoon. The game will be held at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Mississippi. The line for the game is expected to be very close thanks to the successes of both teams in recent time as they aim for a spot in the SEC championship game later on this season.
This is a relatively young SEC rivalry but the Bulldogs are hoping to try and get a win in this one. The Aggies have won their last two games with the Bulldogs. However, the Bulldogs covered the spread in their last game. It was a 51-41 Aggie win where the Bulldogs were listed at +19.5.
Mississippi State has won their last seven games. Their last was a 34-29 upset this past weekend over LSU. The Bulldogs were listed at +7 in that game. The team has won against the spread in their last five SEC games but have lost ATS in their last four October games. Still, they have won ATS in eight of their last nine games.
Texas A&M has a spotty ATS record as they have covered the spread only four times in their last ten games. They lost ATS in their last game when they beat Arkansas in overtime 35-28. The Aggies were -9.5 in that neutral site game. The team has won its last six overall games. The Aggies have taken the over in their last four October games. They have taken the under in four of their last five games against teams who have winning records.
This game is expected to be much closer than what has occurred in recent time. The Mississippi State Bulldogs are -2.5 favorites to win this match. The bets for this game will have a -110 payout. The over/under is also very high as the oddsmakers have the game going with 67.5 points. Also, Texas A&M has a straight up line of +120 while Mississippi State is at -140.
