The goal here isn’t to necessarily find the ones who are going to win, but if that happens, so be it.

LINE: Mississippi State -1, o/u: 44
The line has gone down with people hammering Texas A&M, and for good reason.
Mississippi State doesn’t seem to like scoring points.
The Bulldogs have come up with more than a touchdown in three of the last four games, and even against Auburn the 23 hung on the board weren’t exactly explosive.
A&M punter Braden Mann is a weapon who’ll keep the Bulldogs pinned deep, and the nation’s fourth-best run defense will stuff the team that can only run the ball.
It’s a road game, but it’s still a bad mix for Team Cowbell against the rested Aggies.
