4* SEC BLOCKBUSTER BOOKIE BEATDOWN
Mississippi State vs. LSU,
02/14/2012 21:00 EDT,
Score: 67 - 69
Point Spread: +1/-105 LSU
I will gladly take LSU on the money line at -108. It took everything Mississippi State had to hold off LSU at home back in late January. The Tigers ended up losing the game 71-76, which was pretty impressive considering they were outrebounded 26-46. What kept LSU close was the 17 turnovers they forced. What makes LSU a strong play for me today is the fact that they have played extremely well at home. They are 9-3 at home with tough losses to Virginia and Kentucky. The Tigers just beat Alabama at home 67-58 on Saturday and knocked off Arkansas by 6-points prior to that. Mississippi State is just 1-3 in conference road games. They have benefited from playing mostly home games so far. Four of their last six games are on the road!
LSU is 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a home favorite of 0.5-6.5. BET THE TIGERS!
