Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Alabama Crimson Tide 2/16/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Mississippi State Bulldogs will meet with the #25 Alabama Crimson Tide in a Southeastern Conference clash in Coleman Coliseum, Tuscaloosa, AL, on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, at 7:00 PM (EST).

 

Last week, Mississippi State had a painful stretch. They first flew to Arkansas to face a Razorback team that would upset #1 Auburn, then faced #18 Tennessee at home, and lastly made their way to LSU, who recently slid out of the Top 25 but are regaining strength.

 

Mississippi State is currently 14-10 overall and 5-6 in SEC play after three defeats late in the season. With seven games remaining, the Bulldogs have no room for mistake down the stretch if the NCAA Tournament is still on their radar.

 

Mississippi State receives a high rating on KenPom.com despite its modest 14-10 record. They are rated 27th in scoring efficiency and 81st in defensive efficiency. The Bulldogs have a +6 point difference and are generating over 73 points per game.

 

It’s worth mentioning that the squad lost five of their last six games after failing to reach 73 points in all but one of them. With only 130 three-point field goals on the season, the Bulldogs rely on inside play to be effective.

 

The Bulldogs’ performance in the paint against LSU might help them reclaim the qualities that guided them to a 13-5 record before their latest stumbling block.

 

  • The University of Mississippi State Bulldogs is 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches.
  • Mississippi State is 5-15 SU in their last 20 matches against Alabama.
  • The total went OVER in 8 of Mississippi State’s last 11 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

Mississippi State Bulldogs vs Alabama Crimson Tide Predictions 2/16/2022

 

Alabama was 12-3 at one time and appeared to be a legitimate contender for the SEC title and a foregone conclusion in the NCAA Tournament. The Crimson Tide, on the other hand, only went 4-6 since then and are no longer a lock to make the NCAA Tournament.

 

Alabama, which is 16-9 overall and 6-6 in league play, will need a strong finish to secure a postseason berth. With six league games remaining, Alabama must finish at least 4-2 to be assured of a spot in March Madness.

 

Alabama, like Mississippi State, has high KenPom efficiency scores. The Crimson Tide has the 14th most efficient offensive and the 67th most efficient defense in the country.

 

Alabama was restricted to only 39 percent shooting in the first encounter, a 78-76 Mississippi State victory, and the Bulldogs controlled the glass, 43-32. Both teams turned the ball over 13 times, but Mississippi State converted more turnovers, outscoring their opponents 22-13.

 

  • The total went OVER in 13 of Alabama’s last 19 matches.
  • The Alabama Crimson Tide is 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches at home against Mississippi State.
  • Alabama is 1-9 ATS in their last 10 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

Mississippi State Bulldogs vs #25 Alabama Crimson Tide. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Mississippi State Bulldogs. This is, in my opinion, a one-possession game. Miss State is a tough paint player who destroyed Alabama on the boards in their first meeting.

 

Based on their interior strength, I believe they can do a decent job of directing a play. Both sides may be a little frantic and free with the ball, but this one should be a toss-up. Both teams turned the ball over a similar number of times in the first encounter, but Miss State did a better job of turning Alabama’s mistakes into points.

 

Despite their winning run, Alabama is sloppy with the ball recently, which might play a role in this game. With two teams that are above average in terms of offensive and defensive efficiency. Mississippi State will win to a predicted score of 77-75.
