The Mississippi State Bulldogs and Vanderbilt Commodores face off on Saturday in an SEC college football showdown at Vanderbilt Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020, Mississippi State came away with the 24-17 victory. 

Mississippi State has had a disappointing season so far this season sitting with a 3-3 record overall, and the biggest issue has been their inconsistency. Two games ago against Texas A&M, Mississippi State beat Texas A&M but in the last game against Alabama, Mississippi State could only manage nine points against Alabama. The Bulldogs are averaging 24.6 points per game while the defense is giving up 29 points per game. Will Rogers gets the start for the Bulldogs and he has thrown for 2,162 yards, 14 touchdowns, and five interceptions. Makai Polk has been the best wide receiver putting up 489 yards and four touchdowns. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Vanderbilt Commodores who sit with a 2-5 record and the hope with this team is that it won’t be a long rebuild. In the last game against South Carolina, they were competitive, but they still lost by a point. Vanderbilt is averaging 14.29 points while the defense is giving up 34 points per game. Ken Seals has been the starting quarterback for this team and he has thrown for 1,086 yards and two touchdowns. Two different players have rushed for over 200 yards and they need to use a balanced attack to find success in this game.

Mississippi State is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games as a favorite. Vanderbilt is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games in October. The under is 4-1 in Mississippi State’s last five games. The under is 6-0 in the last six meetings. 

When these two teams face off the under is a strong play and that will continue to be the case in this one. Look for especially Vanderbilt to struggle to score and that will lead to a low scoring game. Back the under to cash.
