Alabama will hold Mississippi State to less than 250 passing yards
This may not look bold to the casual fan, but the Mississippi State passing game is one of the most prolific passing offenses in college football. Mike Leach has brought his air-raid offense to the SEC and sophomore quarterback Will Rogers is doing a fantastic job executing it.
Alabama will hold Mississippi State to 17 points or less
Much has been made of last week’s performance by the Alabama defense. And I will be the first to admit that the first half was just plain bad. In the second half, they seemed to settle down a little and played a little closer to the Alabama standard.
John Metchie will get his first 100 yard receiving game of the season
John Metchie has been a slight disappointment this season for the Alabama offense. Through five games he has just 363 yards receiving with only two touchdowns. Drops have haunted the talented junior this season too.

Alabama vs. Mississippi State prediction, picks
I don’t have a high level of confidence in this pick. I’m very confident that Alabama will win the game, but given how badly the Crimson Tide have struggled on the road, I’m not willing to trust them to cover a spread this large.
Money line (ML)
AVOID. There is just no way you can spend $50 for every $1 earned, and that’s what you’re doing when backing Alabama (-5000) on the money line.
Against the spread (ATS)
ALABAMA ( -31.5, -106) is actually worth a play here, as Mississippi State has really struggled to put up points lately. If you would have told me the Bulldogs would be getting this many points after the upset of LSU, I would have jumped all over it. But the past three games have shown that Leach’s team is still a work in progress.

Bulldogs on offense
Mississippi State’s air raid offense has yet to score more than 3 touchdowns in SEC matchups against Texas A&M and LSU. However, by design, the air raid can string together time-consuming drives the same way that between-the-tackles, smashmouth football can.
Bulldogs on defense
It’s still a bit unclear to me what Alabama is trying to do under new offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.
I think the air raid will infest Nick Saban’s brain and anger him to his core, leading to a loss … eventually. But I don’t think that happens on Saturday.
