Mississippi State vs. Alabama 2019 NCAAF Week 12 moneyline odds for the Bulldogs: +674
Mississippi State is fresh off a 640-yard, 54-point performance in a win on the road against the Arkansas Razorbacks . It was the most yards the Bulldogs ever gained in a single game, with a staggering 460 of those yards coming off their ground attack. The momentum comes at a time when it’s needed the most. The Bulldogs are in the middle of the SEC and a strong finish could get them into a bowl game.
But they’ll have to take on a hungry Alabama team to nab their fifth win of the season. The Bulldogs are a run-first team, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they continue to stick to their offensive philosophy even against ‘Bama’s defense. The Bulldogs are 19th nationally with 217.0 rushing yards per game.

Mississippi State vs. Alabama 2019 NCAAF Week 12 moneyline odds for the Crimson Tide: -1316
You heard the story — that the Crimson Tide got knocked out by the LSU Tigers in Tuscaloosa last Saturday, 46-41. After such a tough loss, Alabama will be itching to get back in the win column, and the Bulldogs appear to be a good punching bag for the Crimson Tide to restore their confidence.
A positive takeaway for the Crimson Tide was that QB Tua Tagovailoa looked healthy and was able to perform in the LSU game after missing a game due to an injury. He recovered from an early fumble to throw for 418 yards and four touchdowns against the Tigers. Even though he may not be at 100%, Tagovailoa showed he has enough in the tank to finish out a very productive season.
