Bulldogs not Unanimous Betting Favorites against Arkansas

New, 9 comments

In a bit of a surprise, the Mississippi State Bulldogs are not being favored by all oddsmakers heading into Saturday.

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

While Arkansas has had a terrible season, it has not been terrible enough to make Mississippi State be unanimous favorites in their matchup against the Razorbacks this weekend.

**Check lines on ESPN**

BetOnline and SportsBetting has the Bulldogs opening up as 2.5-point favorites on the road in Little Rock, but Bovada, Fantasy911, and 5Dimes have Arkansas listed as 2.5-point favorites.  Seeing these lines, one would have to think that the Bulldogs would be underdogs with every service if the game was being played in Fayetteville, and if it was in Starkville, it would be anywhere between a touchdown and a pick 'em contest.

Mississippi State covered Saturday against Alabama, and seeing Mississippi State as an underdog in this contest is somewhat surprising.  It might be easy money for Bulldog fans.

Overall, there is quite a lot of disagreement in the services as to whom the favorites should be this weekend in the SEC. Both Ole Miss and Missouri can be had as three-point underdogs.

In the primetime CBS game, LSU  has opened a four-point favorite against Texas A&M.

In another surprise, at least to this guy, Vanderbilt has opened as a three-point underdog to Tennessee.

How bad are the Kentucky Wildcats?  They open as a 23-point underdog to Georgia.  If that sounds bad, poor Idaho is listed as a 56-point underdog to Florida State.
