Mississippi State faces Kentucky on Tuesday, January 25th, 2022 at Rupp Arena for a college basketball SEC matchup.
Mississippi State is coming off a 78-60 win over Ole Miss in its last game at home on January 22nd. Mississippi State avenged its prior loss to its in-state rival with the blowout victory last time out, which now makes it three wins in the Bulldogs' last four games. Mississippi State is 13-5 overall and 4-2 in conference play on the season with a 10-8-0 against the spread record. Mississippi State will be playing in its third road conference game of the season on Tuesday. Mississippi State's leading scorer so far this season has been G Iverson Molinar, who has scored 17.7 points per game and has earned 4.3 assists per game for the Rebels. F Garrison Brooks leads the team in rebounds per game with 6.5. Mississippi State as a team has scored 75.5 points per game and has shot the ball at a 48.0% clip from the field. Mississippi State has also allowed 65.3 points per game to its opponents.
Kentucky is coming off an 80-71 loss to Auburn in its last game on the road on January 22nd. Kentucky led at halftime of that one but the Tigers were too much in the second half and pulled away for the win and cover. Kentucky's four-game win streak was snapped with the loss and now the Wildcats are 15-4 overall this season and 5-2 in SEC play. Kentucky is one game under .500 against the spread this season at 9-10-0. Kentucky's leading scorer so far this season has been F Oscar Tshiebwe, who has scored 16.1 points per game and has earned 14.8 rebounds per game for the Wildcats. G Sahvir Wheeler leads the team in assists per game with 6.9. Kentucky as a team has scored 82.3 points per game and has shot the ball at a 49.8% clip from the field. Kentucky has also allowed 63.7 points per game to its opponents.
Kentucky is a 9.5-point favorite and the total is set at 147. I think Kentucky bounces back after the loss to Auburn and earns a strong home win at Rupp. Mississippi State is not an easy team to face, but I would much rather take Mississippi State at home. Mississippi State is 0-2 both straight up and against the spread in its two road conference games this season, so it is Kentucky or pass for me.
