What to Know
After a few days’ rest for both teams, the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Kansas State Wildcats will meet up at 11:30 a.m. ET on Saturday at Prudential Center. K-State will be strutting in after a victory while MSU will be stumbling in from a loss.
MSU came up short against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs last Thursday, falling 74-67. MSU got a solid performance out of F Reggie Perry, who posted a double-double on 14 points and 14 rebounds along with three blocks; unfortunately, it just wasn’t enough for the win.
Meanwhile, everything came up roses for K-State against the Alabama State Hornets on Wednesday as the team secured an 86-41 victory. The over/under? 127. So nice work, oddsmakers; you hit the bull’s eye here.
Barring any buzzer beaters, MSU are expected to win a tight contest. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with them, who are 4-3-1 against the spread.
Mississippi State’s defeat took them down to 6-2 while Kansas State’s victory pulled them up to 6-3. A win for MSU would reverse both their bad luck and Kansas State’s good luck. We’ll see if MSU manages to pull off that tough task or if the Wildcats keep their momentum going instead.
