Mississippi State opens its tough November road stretch with a game at Missouri Thursday night, and the Bulldogs have opened as a 7.5-point favorite in the contest.
Earlier, it looked like Maty Mauk could be back in action for Missouri, but he has now been suspended for the season. In Missouri's last contest, the Tigers suffered a 10-3 loss to Vanderbilt in the game that had the lowest over/under total in a decade. With Mauk still out, the Tigers have a tough hill to climb.
The early guess? Expect this line to increase during the week.
