Washington Over Mississippi State: Analysis and Prediction

Jimmy FinleyContributor IMarch 19, 2009

We have a late afternoon game here at Jimmy Finley Sports. The Washington Huskies take on the surprising Mississippi State Bulldogs. The Bulldogs shocked all of the country by winning the SEC Tourney and earning an automatic bid to the NCAA Tourney.

A lot of people are predicting a Bulldogs upset here over Washington in the first round. These predictions include a straight up victory. This is complete nonsense. These predictors forget a lot about the two teams in this game.

Washington gets the usual East Coast bias against the Pac-10, and Mississippi State gets way too much credit for winning a terrible SEC Tourney last week. Washington feels disrespected and will completely blow the Bulldogs out of the water.

Take Washington laying the points here. This is my highest confidence game today!!!
