Missouri is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games. The under is 6-1 in Missouri’s last 7 Friday games. Mississippi State is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The over is 10-4 in Mississippi State’s last 14 games. The home team is 5-2 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

Neither of these teams has played well within the conference this year and are both in bottom half of the SEC. Mississippi State has the advantage in most stats and has the home court advantage. Missouri hasn’t played horribly in their last five games, losing by double-digits just once. I like Missouri to keep it close here against a struggling Mississippi State team.
