(735) Mississippi State vs. Alabama (736) 6:00 PM | Sat, Jan 23 2021
Sport: NCAAB | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Win (1000) - Final Score ALA 81 at MSST 73
13.5 MSST (-104) @ Fanduel

I'm playing on MISSISSIPPI STATE. Needless to say, Alabama has been enjoying a great season. I certainly respect the Tide, having successfully played on them on more than one occasion. That said, I believe that they're a bit over-valued here and I believe that this will prove to be a much tougher challenge than many will be expecting. Off their win at LSU, their third staight "blowout victory, the Tide may be reading their press clippings and patting themselves on the back a little. With a big game against Kentucky on deck, it's going to be easy to look past the Bulldogs. That'll prove costly though. The Bulldogs have arguably played on the road than at home this season and they're coming in thinking "upset" and "signature win." Yes, the Tide put up a whopping 105 points in the LSU game. The Bulldogs don't think much of that though as they're 5-0 ATS their last five against teams which scored 100 or more points, in their previous game. Look for them to give their hosts all they can handle. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
