The Mississippi State Bulldogs will be hosting the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday, January 15th.
The tip-off is set for 6:00 ET from Humphrey Coliseum.
The Crimson Tide started off as a 1.5 point favorite and that game is now a pick ’em. The total has gone from 150.5 to 152.5.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama has played well this year, but they are not as dominant as some previously thought. They are a good team, but I still would not put them in the upper tier of programs in college hoops at the moment. Of course, that can all change over time.
The Crimson Tide lost to the Auburn Tigers on Tuesday by a score of 81-77. It was a back-and-forth game for the entirety of the game, but the better team eventually took care of business.
Even though they did not win their last game, this is a team that has already knocked off some good competition, so we know they can hang with the big boys. The win that really stands out to me is the one over Gonzaga, where they knocked off the team who was ranked #1 at the time.
I thought the offense played well for the most part in the loss to Auburn, but the defense did not play at a high enough level. The tide had no answer for Jabari Smith, who is a total stud for the Tigers. They will look to be better on that side of the ball when they face off with the Bulldogs on Saturday.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
A lot of other teams in the Southeastern Conference may be getting talked about more, but people need to show some respect to this Mississippi State team. They have played quite well and I do not think they are done yet.
Right now, the Bulldogs have a record of 11-4. Getting win number 12 will require them to play an all around great game, but it would not shock me if they were up for the challenge.
They beat the Georgia Bulldogs on Wednesday by a score of 88-72. This crew did just what they had to do against a team that is pretty bad.
Iverson Molinar, who had been very impressive this year, was the leading scorer for this bunch in their last game with 28 points and 7 assists. I think he is going to have to have another one of those big games if his team is going to pull off the win against a very talented and well-coached Crimson Tide club.

Free Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs NCAAB Summary:
A few days after a very tough loss to their in-state rival, Alabama will once again be challenged when they take on this Bulldogs team on the road. Just because their opponent is not ranked does not mean it will be a walk in the park game for the Tide.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Alabama PK
Mississippi State could really get people around college basketball to view them differently if they were able to pull of this win over Bama. They have the talent to do so, but will they be able to play a complete game and not fizzle out against one of the best teams in the SEC?
Even though Bama has not been playing their best ball as of late, they still are the better team and I think they will get back to playing like they were. A team of this level does not just stop playing well.
Based on the fact that this is a pick ’em, I am going with the team that I trust more. Mississippi State may be the popular play after what they have done lately, but I do not love them in this spot against the Tide.
I like Alabama here.
