LINE: Mississippi State -1.5, o/u: 44
POINT TOTAL PICK: Under
This is all about that Mississippi State offense.
The Texas A&M D is great at getting behind the line, and it’s had two weeks to prepare for the one-dimensional attack that can’t throw a lick.
How mediocre has the Bulldog attack been? MSU has scored seven points or fewer in three of the last four games, and the 23-9 win over Auburn was well, well below the 44-pound total of this week.
So far, only one of the six Cowbell games so far against FBS teams have cone over 44 points.
Texas A&M games haven’t been shootouts, either.
There is a danger of a repeat of the South Carolina game a few weeks ago – a 26-23 win – but still, the Aggie offense should hang in the 20s, and the loser of this game will score in the teens.
44 isn’t a lot, and if this misses, it could miss big, but …
Stick with the trend.
