It would seem, however, that betters feel a bit more confident in MSU, as the line already doubled to 3 in MSU's favor before Sunday even closed.
I wouldn't be surprised to see that number go even higher, possibly peaking near the 4-6 range before Saturday night comes, bringing the matchup of Derek Dooley versus Dan Mullen and Tyler Bray versus Tyler Russell in Starkville.
