Mississippi State Favorites vs. Florida Gators, according to Sports Betting Sites

Florida Gators at Mississippi State Bulldogs Latest Odds and Expert Predictions

The Mississippi State Bulldogs are 7½-points favorites against the Florida Gators, according to online sports betting sites. Spread-wise, the Bulldogs have to answer to the best online sportsbooks. However, there are three questions MSU must answer this Saturday. Well, I’m sure they weren’t expecting this kind of Spanish Inquisition. But then, nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. One of those questions is whether the Bulldogs can keep their cool. You see, head coach Joe ‘The Sphinx’ Moorehead has insisted his players “play with emotions without being too emotional.” But emotions got the best of four Bulldogs who committed unsportsmanlike conduct penalties in a losing effort against Kentucky. Perhaps the logical paradox posited by their head coach made their heads explode. And what will happen if the Bulldogs can’t or won’t answer that and the other two questions? Hopefully they will be placed in the comfy chair.

Betting Florida

The Gators scored a combined 95 points in the last two weeks. As a result, they posted two straight ATS wins. But don’t expect three covers in a row. Florida has not covered the online sports betting sites spread three consecutive times in almost three years. Additionally, UF is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games after covering the week prior. And 3-11 ATS in the last 14 after scoring 40 or more points the previous game.

Betting Mississippi State

Kentucky held the usually prolific MSU offense to just seven points. Thus, the Bulldogs will enter Saturday with the proverbial chip on their shoulders. Moreover, they will be playing in their stomping grounds. Not just because it’s a home game, but because they stomp the crap out of opponents at Davis Wade Stadium. MSU is 8-3 SU and ATS in their last 11 home games. A record that includes wins over the likes of Texas A&M. Finally, the Bulldogs have scored more than 30 points in nine of those 11 games.

The Gators are coming off a 47-21 win over the Volunteers. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were made to lose their tempers, and the game, by the Wildcats. However, Florida has two things going against it. Two things online sports betting sites cannot fail to notice. UF is 1-5 ATS in their last six SEC games. And 0-3-1 ATS in their last four meetings with MSU. On the other hand, the Bulldogs haven’t dropped straight games since 2016. And are 23-5 ATS in their last 28 home games. Take MSU and the points.
