What to Know
Get ready for an SEC battle as the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Ole Miss Rebels will face off at 8:30 p.m. ET this past Saturday at The Pavilion at Ole Miss. The teams split their matchups last year, with Ole Miss winning the first 64-46 on the road and MSU taking the second 66-56.
Two weeks ago, the Bulldogs wrapped up 2021 with an 81-68 win over the Arkansas Razorbacks. MSU got double-digit scores from four players: forward Tolu Smith (18), guard Iverson Molinar (16), guard Shakeel Moore (15), and forward D.J. Jeffries (10).
Meanwhile, Ole Miss was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Wednesday as they fell 66-60 to the Tennessee Volunteers. Despite the loss, Ole Miss got a solid performance out of guard Tye Fagan, who shot 5-for-6 from beyond the arc and finished with 23 points.
Barring any buzzer beaters, MSU is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Mississippi State’s victory lifted them to 10-3 while Ole Miss’ defeat dropped them down to 8-5. In their victory, the Bulldogs relied heavily on Tolu Smith, who had 18 points in addition to six rebounds and five steals. the Rebels will need to find a way to minimize his impact if they want to win.
