Fading the public is typically profitable. However, with how close the bet percentages are, it's tough to pick a side here if you want to fade the public.

Pittsburgh vs. Mississippi State Prediction

I will say one thing about this game. I don't trust Pittsburgh.

Pitt has played well this season and I won't take that away from them. However, I can't take them as a legitimate threat here. While the same can be said about Mississippi State, the SEC is much better than the ACC this season.

Tolu Smith has been the guy for Mississippi State all season and I expect that to continue in this one.
