Mississippi St. is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on grass, 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games against teams with a winning record and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games overall.

The trends for Mississippi St. against the spread are very favorable in their recent run of success dating back to the end of 2013. The trends for Texas A&M are very unfavorable, especially within the conference as the Aggies have struggled against the heavyweights in the SEC West. The trends for the total are inconclusive for both teams, the play to make here looks like the spread. The Bulldogs are a tough team to cover against, and they have played many tough teams over the last season and a half, including a very strong LSU squad this year. They will not be intimidated coming into College Station, especially with a tough veteran Qb in Prescott who can win the game with his legs as well as his arm. Texas A&M is shaky against quality teams, they have a lot of talent but the Bulldogs have more heart and know how to play against good teams. Take Mississippi St. and the points here.
PICK–Mississippi St. +6.5
