Alabama vs Mississippi State Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Although Mississippi State’s record is impressive, they have struggled mightily as of late. In their last two games, the Bulldogs beat a 5-5 Nicholls State by just two points at home before losing to Drake by six at a neutral site. Mississippi State really hasn’t been tested since the middle of November when they beat Marquette by three.
Alabama on the other hand has had a gauntlet of a schedule over the past three weeks. They knocked off then #1 Houston before edging out Memphis and losing a close game to then #15 Gonzaga. Alabama has been tested multiple times and have shown the ability to beat top-tier opponents consistently.
The game will be at Mississippi State, but Alabama should have little issue outplaying Mississippi State. The total line is tough to predict, but betting on Alabama to cover just a two-point spread almost seems to easy.
Our college basketball betting Alabama vs Mississippi State prediction tonight will be ALABAMA -2 at BetOnline.
For what it’s worth, the ESPN Matchup Predictor gives Alabama a 50.0% chance to win.
