South Carolina Gamecocks vs Mississippi State Bulldogs prediction

The Mississippi State Bulldogs are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, where they're 11-3 SU. I get it. It's also senior night for an experienced Mississippi State team that has 8 seniors on the roster. And with all that said, the South Carolina Gamecocks are getting points, a team that's 21-9 ATS on the season. South Carolina is a top-10 cover team in college basketball with a 70 percent cover rate. South Carolina also beat Mississippi State in early January, beating the Bulldogs at their own defensive game. Give me the Gamecocks and the points.
