Why Bet on Alabama?

The celebration was great for the Crimson Tide last season, but if you know anything about Nick Saban, he won’t celebrate for long. Alabama will have to figure out what they are going to do at quarterback with Jake Coker heading out. They have Cooper Bateman, Blake Barnett and David Cornwell competing. The Crimson Tide will have to fill the void for Derrick Henry, and several members of their offensive line. Alabama also lost three seniors out of their 3-4 defense, but have guys like Tim Williams, Rashaan Evans and Ryan Anderson to replace those.

Why Bet on Mississippi State?

The Mississippi State Bulldogs will miss quarterback Dak Prescott, who was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. To replace him will be Nick Fitzgerald. It’s not going to be easy to replace Prescott, who will go down as one of the best quarterbacks in school history. The Bulldogs running game will need to improve, after finishing 10th in the SEC last season. Defensively, the Bulldogs will need to replace Beniquez Brown and Chris Jones. It will start with Taveze Calhoun and Will Redmond. The Bulldogs have seven starters returning on the defensive end.

Expert Betting Pick & Prediction

This should be a tough game for the Bulldogs to win on the road. Alabama is always a place that’s tough to play. The Crimson Tide always seem to play some of their best football at home. The Bulldogs are going to have to take care of the football, and find a way to get the defense going to have a chance in this game. In the end, there is not much of a chance. The final score prediction for this game features the home team, and the top team in the country coming away with the win. The prediction for this game is the Alabama Crimson Tide 31-17 over the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
