This SEC matchup features the Florida Gators and the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Both teams are coming off losses over the weekend and will be looking to get back into the SEC regular season title race.
The Gators have dominated the Bulldogs in recent years, having won 8 of the last 10 meetings. This includes the most recent meeting in January of 2018 when Florida blew-out Mississippi State 71-54.
The Gators are certainly having a down year, sitting only 3 games above .500, when they are used to being near the top of the SEC standings and ranked in the top 25. They will have a tremendous opportunity against a ranked Mississippi State team who has yet to win a conference game.
The Gators offense is a big problem this year as they are only averaging 69.7 points per game. This could become even more of a problem as conference play rolls along. Their leading scorer is KeVaughn Allen, but he is only averaging 11.3 points per game. Look for the Gators to feed Allen the ball in hopes that he will get hot from the field.
Despite their lack of offense, the Gators enter this game with a top 12 defense in the country. They are only allowing about 61.2 points per game. Also, their opponents shoot 39.9% on average and 30.3% from three point range. If the Gators can hold the Bulldogs to around these numbers, they will have a good chance of pulling the upset.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs were sitting high and mighty at 12-1 heading into the new year, and then reality hit as they have now lost back to back games to SEC opponents. if the Bulldogs are going to make a run for the number one seed in the SEC standings, this is almost a must win game as they cannot afford to drop to 0-3.
The Bulldogs have a solid offense this season, averaging 80.1 points per game. They also shoot the ball relatively well, shooting 47.9% from the field and 38% from the three point line. Look for leading scorer, Quinndary Weatherspoon to have a monster and give the Bulldogs a solid chance to pick up their first conference win.
The defense is not all that bad as they allow 69 points per game. However, since SEC play started their defense has allowed an average of 84 points per game. This is only a small sample size of 2 games, but if the defense does not improve, the Bulldogs will be in real danger of dropping to 0-3.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 6-2 in MSST last 8 home games.
- FLA are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Tue. games.
