NCAA Betting Total Odds: O/U 47
Two teams from the SEC will be squaring off when the Kentucky Wildcats visit the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
The Wildcats are coming off of a bye week and the Bulldogs are coming off of a win.
Kentucky started off as a 1.5 point favorite and now they are 1 point underdogs. The total has stayed right around 47.
The #12 team in the nation may not be getting a lot of attention, but this team has had a very good year. Their one blemish was against the best team in the country.
The Wildcats last played on October 16th when they lost to Georgia 30-13. They did cover as 22.5 point underdogs in that one, though.
In the loss to the Bulldogs, Will Levis was asked to throw the ball a lot. He was 32/42 for 192 yards and 2 touchdown passes.
Chris Rodriguez, who is one of their most explosive runners, only had 7 carries for 7 yards against Georgia. I look for him to get more touches and be more productive against Mississippi State.
The defense for this team has been impressive. Even though Georgia had 30 points, it was not as if they were marching up and down the field on every possession.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs have been an up and down team this year. I wouldn’t say they have been terrible, but they also have not been great.
Mississippi State easily took care of Vanderbilt last Saturday as they beat them 45-6. They did exactly what they had to do against a team like that.
In the victory against the Commodores, Will Rogers was 41/57 for 384 yards with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Based on how many times Rogers threw the ball, the running game was not a major emphasis. The leading receiver was Jaden Walley who had 5 catches for 72 yards.
The defense has been inconsistent for them. Sure, it was good last week, but that was against Vanderbilt. It will be a better test this week when they go against a more powerful offense.

This game may not be getting talked about as much as other ones, but I think it can be a very good one.
I am going with Kentucky straight up here.
4* Free Week 9 NCAA Betting Pick:
I look for Kentucky to come out sharp in this one. They are coming off of a bye week and they also suffered their first loss the last time they played.
The offense for the Wildcats really struggled against Georgia, but I look for them to have more success this week against a defense that is not great. They definitely should be able to put up some points.
As far as Mississippi State goes, I think they will score some, but points will be hard to come by. I think the Kentucky defense will have a good game plan for Rogers & co.
Give me the Wildcats as slight dogs on the road here.
