Arrangement courtesy USA Today Athletic Coaches Survey.
While Kansas was losing its third straight game over the weekend and Houston lost to Temple, Alabama held firm with an 85-64 win in Missouri on Saturday to vault into second place in the rankings. This will be a chemistry of strengths as the 9th-ranked Alabama offense (84.1 points per game) will be against the 6th-ranked Mississippi State defense (58.3 points allowed per game).
Alabama lives and dies with the long ball despite shooting just 34.6% (149th overall) from outside the arc. Although the Bulldogs’ scoring defense is good, their 32.2% 3-point defense ranks only 126th and this is an area where the Tide could exploit a small weakness. Mississippi State has struggled to score this season, ranking 330th nationally with just 64.9 points per game—nearly 20 points per game less than Alabama.

Mississippi Alabama picks and predictions
Alabama 76, Mississippi State 62
Mississippi State has struggled since entering SEC play. The road game in Tuscaloosa won’t help them out on a winning side and -850 is a lot higher than the bet on Alabama. stay away.
Alabama home -11.5 (-110).
Alabama will go up and down the ground in Mississippi. With the 3-point shot, you’ll be able to get away from a Bulldogs squad that isn’t well equipped to defend. This game can get ugly and it can happen early on. Alabama is looking to take over the top spot with no slip from Purdue. This will keep them focused and ready to stay undefeated in SEC play.
under 142.5 (-110) is the play.
Despite the Bulldogs having a sixth-ranked defense, Alabama will be able to push the pace. The problem, however, is that the Bulldogs’ offense won’t be able to keep up.
Even if this game ends with Alabama in the 1980s, it may be difficult for this game to reach the total. If the total drops below 142, I’d consider a change, but for now, it’s weak.
