The Auburn Tigers and Mississippi State Bulldogs face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Humphrey Coliseum. When these two teams faced off in March of 2021 it was Auburn that won 78-71. 

Auburn comes into this game with a 25-4 record overall and they have gone 18-11 against the spread. Auburn is still having a nice season, but they haven’t been as dominant as of late. A few games ago they lost to Florida, and in the last game against Tennessee they were defeated by five points. Auburn is averaging 79.1 points while their defense is giving up 66.9 points per game. Jabari Smith has been the top player for Auburn averaging 16.6 points while shooting 43.4 percent from the field. This is a team that takes pride in the defense, but they are going to need the offense to be more productive.

On the other side of this matchup is the Mississippi State Bulldogs who sit with a 17-12 record and they have gone 14-14-1 against the spread. In the last game against Vanderbilt, Mississippi State outscored Vanderbilt 44-37 in the second half and that led to the victory. The Bulldogs are averaging 71.6 points while their defense is giving up 66.2 points per game. Iverson Molinar has been the top player for Mississippi State averaging 18.1 points while shooting 47.7 percent from the field and 26.5 percent from deep. In this game if the Bulldogs defense can be good, they will have a shot to pull off the upset.

Auburn is 0-5 against the spread in their last five road games. Auburn is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall. The over is 6-1 in the Bulldogs last seven games against a team with a winning straight up record. 

Auburn has struggled to cover the spreads on the road and it’s not going to be any different in this game. I don’t trust the Tigers offense and their lack of scoring is going to let them down. Back the Bulldogs to come away with the cover of the spread. A few dollars on the Mississippi State money line also makes sense.
