Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers have a meeting this Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Yes, the Bulldogs appear to be up this year while the Tigers look to be down but the line adjustment is just too steep for our liking. Remember, Mississippi State has been a dog of 13 or more points in its last four trips to Auburn – and the last time they showed up as favorites (1999), they got the 18-16 win but not the
To further complicate matters, the Tigers have taken a bite out of the Bulldogs in this series of late (7-2 ATS last nine 9) and are 7-1 ATS in the second of back-to-back home games.

And because we knew you’d ask: defending national champs are at their best at home in conference games the following year, going 103-12-2 SU with only four losses coming by more than 6 points.
Sportsbooks currently have the Bulldogs listed as 6-point favorites versus the Tigers, and the game's total is sitting at 54½.
