LSU vs. Mississippi St, 3-8-2018 - Pick and Prediction
The Mississippi State Bulldogs are heading into the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament on a two-game losing streak, which they hope to halt when they face the LSU Tigers.
The 10th seeded LSU Tigers will meet the 7th seeded Mississippi State Bulldogs at Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri, for an SEC tournament game on Thursday, 7 pm EST.  In their last meeting on 3/3, the Tigers got the 78-57 home win.  Brandon Sampson and Aaron Epps each had 21 points for the Tigers while Tremont Waters had 14 points in the win.  LSU shot 51.9% from the field and 47.8% from 3-point range.  Lamar Peters had 15 for the Bulldogs while Quinndary Witherspoon had 12 points.  For the game, the Bulldogs shot 41.1% from the field and only 26.1% from 3-point range (6 of 23).  The winner of this game gets to play 2nd seeded Tennessee. The LSU Tigers ended the season winning 3 of their last 5 games.  In their last outing, they got the 78-57 win over the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday.  After beginning the season with a bit of promise, the Tigers gradually sunk into the abyss of the SEC due to lack of consistency combined with a lack of talent.  For the season, they are 14-12-1 ATS and 14-13. The Mississippi State bulldogs ended the season also winning 3 of their last 5 games.  Nevertheless, they have lost their last two games going in to the tournament.  While their record is not bad, they struggled within the conference early in the season and those losses came back to haunt them late in the year.  For the season, they are 13-15 ATS and 14-14 O/U.
