Team Statistical Comparison

Mississippi State scores an average of 71.6 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 66.2 points per contest. Texas A&M scores an average of 72.8 points per game while allowing opposing teams to score an average of 66.7 points per contest.

This is going to be a showdown. Two teams one win from finishing .500 in the SEC. If the winner of this game makes a good run in the SEC Tourney that team could find themselves dancing at the Big Dance. The loser is pretty much relegated to the NIT at best, barring winning the SEC Tournament. That’s almost impossible to do for a team not seeded in the upper echelon of the SEC. If you enjoy sports betting this game could be an interesting challenge.
