Over on the Louisville side, they’re 7-5 this year. The Cardinals are 2-2 in the last four games, taking out NC State and Syracuse while falling to Miami-FL and Kentucky in that time. 

In the loss to the Wildcats, Louisville’s Malik Cunningham posted 78 yards with a TD and an INT, while Chatarius Atwell had 57 yards with a TD on four catches. Javian Hawkins led the rush there with 142 yards and a TD. 

The Bulldogs are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 non-conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven on grass. Mississippi State is 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS win and 0-4 ATS versus a team with a winning record. 

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 13-28 ATS in their last 41 overall and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 after an ATS loss. Louisville is 2-6 ATS in their last eight on grass and 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 non-conference games. 

Mississippi State has had some tough matchups this season, and considering their competition they’ve performed pretty admirably record-wise. The Bulldogs have been scoring at a pretty good clip overall, with at least 30 points in three of their last five games. 

As for Louisville, they’ve been pretty choppy since their surprise win over Virginia but they’ve had a few decent offensive outings. All things considered though, I like Mississippi State on the cover here.
