You can't blame Alabama if they get caught looking ahead against Mississippi State team with a stout defense.  Take the Bulldogs and the points against the Crimson Tide.

After squeaking out an OT win last week in a highly anticipated game, Alabama now must face a tricky flat spot at home. The Crimson Tide have clinched the West Division and looking ahead to the Auburn game or the SEC championship is a strong possibility.

Mississippi State has had two weeks to prepare for this game and the Bulldogs have won outright the last two years in this series. Mississippi State also owns great defensive numbers and the Tide are overvalued with the high ranking in the polls. Alabama has had horrible recent results in the home favorite role amazingly going 3-18 ATS the last 21 games laying points at home while Mississippi State is 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings of this series.

This game will mean a lot more to the underdog Bulldogs and MSU owns a defense that is allowing just 295 yards per game with second ranked pass defense in the nation.

Free Pick: Mississippi St +21½ (-110)
