Vanderbilt Commodores vs Mississippi State Bulldogs 2/26/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Vanderbilt Commodores will go against the Mississippi State Bulldogs in a Southeastern Conference clash in Humphrey Coliseum, Starkville, MS, on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at 1:00 PM (EST).

 

Vanderbilt may not have a lot of victories to show for it, but the Commodores are playing better basketball this season than most people thought. They have six wins in a conference that is regarded as one of the strongest in the country.

 

Despite losing three of its final four matches, Vanderbilt was competitive against three ranked opponents in Tennessee, Auburn, and Alabama.

 

Last Saturday, the Commodores defeated Texas A&M by a score of 72-67. They’re gearing up for games against Florida and Ole Miss next week to cap off the regular season. In the SEC standings, Vanderbilt is only one game behind eighth place.

 

The Commodores are rated No. 120 in KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency ratings heading into this matchup. They were not shooting the ball well, with 2-point, 3-point, and free-throw percentages all below the top 210.

 

Vanderbilt likewise struggled with high turnover, ranking 251st in the nation. The Commodores will face a Mississippi State defense ranked 57th in adjusted efficiency.

 

  • The University of Vanderbilt Commodores is 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 matches.
  • Vanderbilt is 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches against Mississippi State.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Vanderbilt’s last 8 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

Vanderbilt Commodores vs Mississippi State Bulldogs Predictions 2/26/2022

 

Mississippi State had a strong start to the season, going 12-4 in its first 16 matches. During that time, the Bulldogs defeated Arkansas and Alabama, putting them in contention for an NCAA Tournament berth. They went on to lose six of their next eight matches before roaring back last weekend with a series sweep of Missouri.

 

Mississippi State, on the other hand, lost a critical game against South Carolina on Wednesday. According to ESPN’s Joe Lunardi, the Bulldogs are no longer on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament.

 

Wins against Vanderbilt, No. 3 Auburn, and Texas A&M down the stretch, on the other hand, would put them in an excellent spot heading into the SEC Tournament.

 

The Bulldogs are a well-balanced squad, with an adjusted defensive efficiency ranking of No. 44. They shoot decently from inside the arc, but their 3-point percentage (30.3) ranks 322nd in the country. Another offensive stumbling block is their high turnover rate (No. 218).

 

Mississippi State boasts one of the top offensive rebounding percentages in the NCAA, allowing them to save a lot of possessions. The Bulldogs will be up against a Vanderbilt defense ranked 41st in adjusted efficiency.

 

  • The University of Mississippi State Bulldogs is 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches.
  • Mississippi State is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches at home against Vanderbilt.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Mississippi State’s last 7 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

Vanderbilt Commodores vs Mississippi State Bulldogs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Vanderbilt Commodores. There are aspects of both teams that I admire, but I have to choose Vanderbilt as a road favorite on Saturday.

 

Six of the Commodores’ previous seven matches saw them cover the spread, with the other game ending in a tie. They nailed down their identity: throw the ball to Pippen Jr. at crucial times and let the rest of the squad do their thing. Mississippi State appears to be searching for its identity.

 

Molinar is playing iso-ball, and its big guys are causing havoc in the paint. The Commodores have the size to match Mississippi State and keep the game competitive all the way through. The Bulldogs are under a lot of pressure, but Vanderbilt should be relaxed. Vanderbilt will win and cover the ATS to a predicted at 70-67.
