Arkansas is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a win of 20+ points. The over is 5-1 in Arkansas’ last 6 games. Mississippi State is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage of 60% or better. The home team is 11-3 ATS in these two teams last 14 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have started the season strong and look to win their first conference game of the season. Mississippi State likes to play at a much slower pace than Arkansas does and allows fewer points per game. Rebounding and shooting are about the same, so it will come down to who can dictate the pace. With Mississippi State at home, I like them to win.
