Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Auburn Tigers prediction

The Auburn Tigers have the offensive horses to blow this game out of the water, especially at home, where they're 13-1 SU on the season. Auburn is also 17-9-2 ATS on the season, so I understand why folks are high on the Tigers. With all that said, the Mississippi State Bulldogs are a tough team to play due to having one of the best defenses in college basketball. Also, Mississippi State beat Auburn back in January by 6 points as a 3 point underdog. Auburn has also been shaky these last couple of weeks where the defense has taken a step back. I'll take a shot with Mississippi State and the buckets.
