Opening Odds: Mississippi State Bulldogs Open as Underdog on the Road against Arkansas Razorbacks

New, 2 comments

Arkansas looked sharp Saturday. Mississippi State, not so much. The Bulldogs are now listed as underdogs in the contest between the two teams Saturday in Fayetteville.

For much of the season, Mississippi State has looked like a stronger program than Arkansas.  Over the last two weeks, that perception has changed a bit as the Bulldogs throttled Missouri and were then throttled by Alabama, and Arkansas picked up a wild overtime victory over Ole Miss and took it to LSU Saturday.

The folks making odds took notice, and they installed the Razorbacks as three-point home favorites over Mississippi State.  Not too long after the odds were released, the line shifted to the Razorbacks being 3.5-point favorites.

Fayetteville has not historically been kind to Mississippi State, but the Bulldogs picked up a huge win in the Ozark Foothills.

We'll have to wait until Saturday to see how this one will play out.
