Crimson Tide at Bulldogs OddsShark Matchup Report

Alabama Crimson Tide

The Crimson Tide failed to cover as 20.5-point favorites last Saturday at home against the LSU Tigers, but the result of the game was never really in question as Alabama rolled to a 24-10 victory.

Ranking ninth in the nation in scoring offense with 40.9 points per game and best in the nation in scoring defense allowing 9.8 points per game, the Crimson Tide have won their games by a staggering average margin of 31.1 points per game this season. Alabama has won each of its last two games against Mississippi State by 25 points or more.

Since October of 2015, the Crimson Tide are 23-0 SU and 14-9 ATS in 23 games against SEC opponents, per the OddsShark College Football Database.

Mississippi State Bulldogs

After losing back-to-back games to Georgia and Auburn at the end of September, the Bulldogs are 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS over their last four games, bringing their season record to 7-2 SU and 6-3 ATS.

Junior quarterback Nick Fitzgerald has passed for 1,459 yards and 13 touchdowns while rushing for 801 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. The big knock on Fitzgerald is his 10 interceptions. Mississippi State is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in its last five games at home.

Saturday's total is set at 51 points. The UNDER is 8-2 in the last 10 games of this head-to-head series.

Dual-threat quarterbacks have at times given Alabama's vaunted defense trouble, and a career day from Fitzgerald could give the Bulldogs a shot at an upset. This will be Alabama's toughest test thus far this season, but with as well-rounded and loaded with talent as this group is, it's hard to go against the Crimson Tide.
