Mississippi State LSU Betting Tips –Mississippi State Gets One Last Chance To Prove Itself

Posted by Blake Frazier on 11/6/2012 5:35:13 PM

The Mississippi State Bulldogs have been thrashed the past two weeks by Alabama and Texas A&M. If they get whacked by the LSU Tigers, their season will lie in ruins.

Why Mississippi State Will Win

No bet on sports is free from risk – LSU could thump Mississippi State. However, the Tigers must be down in the dumps and extremely deflated after their narrow loss to Alabama this past weekend. The Tigers outgained Alabama and moved the ball better on the Crimson Tide than any other team in college football this season. LSU carried a lead into the final three minutes with possession of the ball. The Tigers needed just one more first down to salt away the win and gain full control of the SEC West race. So many goals and hopes and aspirations for LSU were within reach.

The Tigers could taste victory, and what's more was that they had held Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron to only one completion and zero passing yards in the first 28 minutes of the second half. Even though LSU didn't get that last first down, it still took a three-point lead into the final 94 seconds, giving Alabama the ball back with 1:34 left on the clock and no timeouts. LSU's defense had been so strong up to that point in time. The Tigers, playing at home in Baton Rouge, La., still had to feel very good about their chances. Yet, just when they were about to win, they let down their guard. They allowed Alabama to march down the field for a touchdown in just 43 seconds, with the winning touchdown being scored on a screen pass with 51 seconds left on the clock.

LSU has to be devastated by that result against Alabama. If the Tigers are indeed unable to move forward and concentrate on Mississippi State, they will lose… not because they don't have more talent than Mississippi State (they definitely have more talent than the Bulldogs), but because they will not be emotionally ready to play. The history of college football, like the history of sports, is replete with examples of how teams that had more talent failed to win because they were not emotionally focused or centered.

Why LSUWill Win

Even mma betting experts know that LSU should be more optimistic at this point… no, not about its SEC title chances (they're gone) or its national title hopes (also gone), but about its ability to play a high level of football. The Tigers played Alabama extremely well last weekend, and actually produced their best game of the year, even in defeat. Most importantly, quarterback Zach Mettenberger – who had been enduring a poor season – finally played a big-boy football game, hitting receivers with precision on a number of various routes. Mettenberger, when playing the way he did on Saturday, makes LSU an elite team. This is the team that can and should throttle Mississippi State. The Tigers now know they have a field general they can trust in crunch time. This is something that should give the team an emotional boost amidst the hurt of falling short against the defending national champions.

Who Will Win

LSU is playing better and better right now, while Mississippi State is playing worse and worse as the season goes along. LSU is much stronger up front, and the Tigers should blast the Bulldogs as a result.
