Mississippi State (+7) over Alabama
The Tide may grab a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament, but the SEC’s top team hasn’t looked the part since it was revealed that star Brandon Miller brought the gun used in a murder linked to former teammate Darius Miles.
Following the news, Alabama won two games in overtime and one by one possession, before suffering its second loss in the past six games.
An elite Bulldogs defense will present problems for the Tide again, following a pair of competitive games this season.
