The college basketball betting line on this game is noteworthy as the Wildcats are getting nearly four points and are fresh off a dominant victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide. It’s a unique spot, but they face a Mississippi State team that’s been on an absolute tear of late. The high-profile SEC matchup should have major implications on the postseason seedings for the conference tournament, and we broke down why an upset is very much on the table in NCAAB predictions.

Kentucky vs Mississippi State Over/Under Pick: Under 156

While the Kentucky Wildcats boast a high-scoring offense that averages 88.7 points this season, their numbers have been far more modest in road games. Specifically of late, and in the past two road games, Kentucky scored just 74 and 70 points while a Mississippi State defense that allows 67.5 points per game has been strong at home during the recent stretch, giving up no more than 71 points in any of the past three games.

I think we see both of these things hold true in a marquee SEC matchup, and the Bulldogs’ defense could make the difference when it comes to taking the under here in online betting.

Kentucky vs Mississippi State ATS Pick: Kentucky +3½

This is a tough spot to gauge here, and while I think the Bulldogs have the talent to pull off the home victory, I like taking Kentucky here laying points. If you can move the line up to +4, I like it even more as I think this game is close and comes down to the wire. Kentucky is fresh off a dominant victory against a strong 19-8 Alabama team, and the Wildcats should parlay that into a strong result against this Mississippi State team.

Regardless of which side you like to win outright, I’m going to roll with taking the points for a talented Kentucky group.

If you’re targeting the Wildcats with the points, then dabbling on them to win outright is a good play. They check in at +145 in Las Vegas odds to win the game outright, and it’s a strong spot to target if you’re backing Kentucky.

Question Of The Day

Which player will score the most points between Kentucky and Mississippi State?


It’s tough to bet against Kentucky guard Antonio Reeves in this spot, especially considering his recent stretch of success. The senior has scored 24, 25 and 22 points in the last three games and has topped 15 or more points in 13 consecutive games.
