Tennessee Volunteers vs Mississippi State Bulldogs 1/17/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The #9 Tennessee Volunteers will meet with the Mississippi State Bulldogs in NCAAB action in Humphrey Coliseum, Mississippi, on Tuesday, January 17, 2023, at 7:00 PM ET.


No. 9 By losing to Kentucky on Saturday, Tennessee, which was one of the top teams in the SEC thus far this year, suffered just its third loss of the year.


Before their 63-56 loss against the Wildcats, the Vols won in 13 of their previous 14 contests. In the middle of December, they suffered their lone defeat during that run when they traveled to then-No. 9 Arizona.


After that defeat, they went on a five-game unbeaten run, winning four of those games against SEC foes to start that phase of their campaign.


Despite playing despite a shoulder injury, the team’s leading scorer Santiago Vescovi (12.9) only made one of six three-point attempts after making 17 of 30 (56.7%) in his previous five matches.


Tennessee’s big man Uros Plavsic stood out with 19 points on 9 of 11 shooting. The Vols’ rebounding problems surprised them because they now rank fourth nationally in that category. 


  • The total went UNDER in 10 of Tennessee’s last 15 matches. 
  • The Tennessee Volunteers are 13-2 SU in their last 15 matches. 
  • The Volunteers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games with Mississippi State.

Tennessee Volunteers vs Mississippi State Bulldogs Predictions 1/17/2023


Although Mississippi State started the season 11-0, none of those victories came against very formidable opponents.


Since then, the Bulldogs dropped five of their six matches, including a lopsided defeat at Tennessee earlier this month.


On January 7, they defeated Ole Miss 64-54 to earn their lone victory over an SEC team, but the week after that, they suffered road defeats to Georgia and then-No. 21 Auburn.


The Bulldogs were equally as poor defensively as they were offensively. They are ranked No. 327 in effective field goal percentage and have some of the poorest shooting percentages in collegiate basketball (46.1).


Mississippi State is making just 28.8% of its 3-point attempts while making 61.1% of its free throw attempts. The Bulldogs’ offensive rebounding percentage places them No. 15 in the nation, and they excelled there.


  • The Mississippi State Bulldogs are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 14 of Mississippi State’s last 18 outings. 
  • The Mississippi State Bulldogs are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches.

#9 Tennessee Volunteers vs Mississippi State Bulldogs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #9 Tennessee Volunteers.


Without a doubt, Tennessee is returning from one of its worst games of the year, but I’d be surprised if that continued into this contest.


Rick Barnes does a fantastic job of motivating his squad to rebound with good performances, particularly on defense.


This year, the Vols already thoroughly outplayed Mississippi State once, and they currently hold an eight-game lead in the all-time series between these two teams.


Their defense makes them well-suited to play away from home, while Mississippi State has less attacking talent than Tennessee. The Volunteers will win to a predicted score of 66-59.
