The Utah Utes are a respectable defensive team that’s worthy of a look in the underdog role, but the Mississippi State Bulldogs have shown far and away more balance. Mississippi State is playing high level defense, but also getting most of their looks on offense. I like what we’re seeing from Mississippi State right now. I’ll lay the small chalk.
