The Mississippi State Bulldogs and Texas A&M Aggies face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Reed Arena.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs come into this game with a 13-12 record overall and coming into this game they have won two of their last three games. The one loss during that stretch was in their last game against Alabama, but even in that game they only gave up 64 points. Mississippi State on the season is averaging 69.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 65.6 points per game. Mississippi State is shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 35 percent from behind the three point line. D.J. Stewart Jr has been the best player for Mississippi State averaging 16.5 points while shooting 42.8 percent from the field and 34.9 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Texas A&M Aggies who come into this game with an 8-7 record but coming into this game they have lost three of the last four games. The one win during that stretch came in their last game against Kansas State by seven points. Texas A&M on the season is averaging 63.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 65.1 points per game.

Forward Emanuel Miller has been the best player for Texas A&M averaging 14.8 points while shooting 56.7 percent from the field.
Mississippi State is 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 games played on Wednesday. The under is 7-1 in Texas A&M’s last eight games against the SEC. The under is 10-2 in Texas A&M’s last 12 games overall. The underdog is 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games overall.
The more talented team is Mississippi State but I don’t trust them on the road, and Texas A&M is getting too many points. Look for Texas A&M to come away with a cover of the spread.
