The Tennessee Volunteers and Mississippi State Bulldogs face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Humphrey Coliseum. When these two teams faced off in January of 2021 it was Tennessee that won 56-53.

Tennessee comes into this game with a 16-6 record overall and they have gone 13-9 against the spread. The Volunteers have won two games in a row including the last game against South Carolina. The offense put up 81 points in that game, while the defense gave up 57 points. Tennessee is averaging 74.5 points while their defense is giving up 63 points per game. Santiago Vescovi has been the top player for Tennessee averaging 13.9 points while shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Mississippi State Bulldogs who sit with a 14-8 record and they have gone 11-10-1 against the spread. In the last game against Arkansas, Mississippi State could only manage 55 points and that led to the eight point defeat. This is a decent Bulldogs team, but at times the offense has been a bit inconsistent. Mississippi State is averaging 73.5 points while their defense is giving up 66.4 points per game. Iverson Molinar has been the top player for Mississippi State averaging 18.2 points while shooting 49.1 percent from the field and 27.8 percent from behind the three point line. This would be a big win for the Bulldogs tournament chances and seeding, and there is a lot of pressure on this game.

The Bulldogs are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six home games. The over is 6-0 in the Bulldogs last six home games. The over is 9-2 in Mississippi State’s last 11 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Tennessee’s last five games played on Wednesday. 

Mississippi State struggled to score in the last game, and against this Volunteers defense they are going to struggle again in this game. Even at home, Mississippi State is going to struggle, and they are going to lose their second game in a row. Back Tennessee against the spread.
