Mississippi St. Vs. Alabama – College Football Week 11 Picks
Mississippi State Bulldogs Vs. Alabama Crimson Tide Predictions
The Mississippi St. Bulldogs are a team flying under the radar. Well, they will have a chance to show their skills to the rest of the nation by challenging the untouchable Alabama. The oddsmakers at Mybookie.ag have the Tide as a 24-point favorite. The line moved half a point down during the week, but it’s back to 24-points. 56% of the betting public is swallowing the points and taking Bama. Right now, it’s hard to make a case against Alabama.
The Bulldogs hope their defense is good enough to hold the Tide to a decent number at least. Mississippi State gives up 12.3 points per game (2nd best in the nation). In the last two weeks, they allowed 16 points combined to Texas A&M and Louisiana Tech. Here’s where it gets tricky. As good as those numbers are, when you play a team like Alabama, all goes to the trash. The way Bama is measured is entirely different. They are so overwhelmingly better than the rest of the teams that comparisons are worthless.
QB Tua Tagovailoa is listed -800 at MyBookie.ag to win the 2018 Heisman Trophy. His showing against LSU last week was impressive, even if he threw his first interception of the season. Tua had three touchdowns, including a 44 rushing TD against one of the best defenses in the nation. The matchups itself is not only about Bama’s dominant offense, averaging a nation’s best 51.3 points per game, against Mississippi State’s defense. What will happen when the Bulldogs have the ball? Last week, the Tide completely shut down the Tigers offense. Their challenge this week is basically the same. Mississippi State doesn’t have an impressive offensive unit to either stay in the game or get a backdoor cover. I feel dumb anytime I bet against this Alabama team. And I don’t like to feel dumb. What’s the play? Alabama -24.
