Mississippi State has opened up as a heavy road favorite this week against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, according to betting site Oddshark.com.
Perhaps the money line is the most interesting bet this week for Mississippi State and Southern Miss. An opening wager of $2282 would net a bettor $100 should Mississippi State win, but a $100 bet placed on Southern Miss would give someone $1358 should the Golden Eagles walk away victorious.
For now, Mississippi State is listed as a 23-point favorite in their best spreads to cover. The Golden Eagles at best are getting 23.5 points in the contest. The spread, combined with an over-under in the ball park of 56-56.5 points makes this one a tough one to figure out.
At the end of the day, the Bulldogs should be good for at least 42 points in the contest, if not more. That means, the over/under will really depend more on what Southern Miss can do offensively in the game. If the Golden Eagles can find the end zone on two occasions, someone will either clean up or be left busted.
