Mississippi State (3-3) has opened as a 10 point favorite over the visiting Kentucky Wildcats (1-5), according to the sports betting website BetOnline.com.

MSU-UK Odds

This line is about as could be expected, as the Bulldogs are the clear favorite in this matchup.  Kentucky, like MSU, comes into Thursday night's contest off of a bye, but before that the Wildcats had been in the midst of a brutal portion of their schedule.  After a second game win over Miami of Ohio, the Wildcats have lost four straight games to the likes of Louisville (#7), Florida (#20), South Carolina (#13), and Alabama (#1).  UK's schedule does ease up a bit, in relative terms, but they do still have MSU, Missouri, Georgia, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt on the schedule to finish out the season.

The Bulldogs and Wildcats will square off at 6:30 Thursday night, October 24, on ESPN.
