How To Bet On Mississippi State Alabama – Top-Ranked Alabama Enter Tough Stretch

Posted by Blake Frazier on 10/22/2012 6:54:48 PM

The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide are well on their way to another shot at national title with seven-straight wins to open the season. Executing at a high level and maintaining an undefeated record will be that much more difficult as they enter the toughest portion of their schedule. The Tide host the No. 11 Mississippi State Bulldogs in the first of three-straight games against ranked opponents from the SEC this Saturday, with the No. 6 LSU Tigers and No. 20 Texas A&M Aggies to follow over the following two sports betting weeks. Each contest will provide its own different challenges for head coach Nick Saban and his team, and it will be important to take each game one at a time.

As important as this game will be to Alabama, the Bulldogs are concentrated on taking care of their own business against the first ranked opponent on their schedule this season. Mississippi State has had little trouble to this point in its season, but all that could change against the defending national champions.

The Bulldogs have relied on the combination of a strong defense and an efficient offense so far this season, and have allowed the ninth-fewest points among FBS team with an average of just 14.4 against per game. However, this will again be a much tougher test than Mississippi State has faced so far, with the only comparison in the schedules being that each team has played Tennessee, a game the Bulldogs won by 10, compared to Alabama’s 31-point win. Mississippi State can only concentrate on its own attack though, and it will help that running back LaDarius Perkins is one of only two FBS running backs to score a rushing touchdown in every game this season. Perkins won’t get much room against that Tide front-seven, so he will need to be at his best when space opens up.

In a game that many of the online sportsbook experts had circled as a potential upset, Alabama simply steamrolled the Volunteers for one of its most impressive wins this season. Quarterback AJ McCarron threw for a career-high 306 yards and four touchdowns, and the Tide matched their longest streak in school history with a seventh-straight game with at least 30 points. Last week’s win also marked the third time in the past four weeks that the Alabama offense has compiled more than 500 total yards of offense, and when you consider that these numbers are being registered by a team that owns the top-ranked defense in the country, it really isn’t fair to make any comparisons when talking about the nation’s best teams.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

It’s hard to imagine that this year’s Alabama team would actually be better than the one that won a national title a year ago, but with the defensive statistics actually better than they were a year ago, and the offense making major strides, that is exactly the case so far. The Crimson Tide enter the toughest portion of their schedule with a ton of momentum behind them, and it won’t be a surprise at all if the result was another blowout win in front of a packed house at Tuscaloosa.
