Game Day Predictions
« on: January 02, 2018, 07:34:06 am »

Hogs vs. MSU in the first road trip of the SEC schedule.

I think Hogs take a tough, hard fought game--Hogs 78- MSU 72

How do we match up with them?

All I know is MSU hasn't played anyone close to the intensity level if the Hogs. I think we win by 8

Looking at Miss St's schedule, the only good team they have played so far is Cincinnati, and that is their only loss (by 15). MSU has beaten a bunch of nobodies so far (to include UALR), with the possible exception of Dayton, and the Flyers aren't that great this year.   
Beating the Bulldogs in The Hump won't be easy, but if the Hogs can somehow take their Bud Walton game on the road, they should be able to win this one.
Hogs - 87
Dogs - 79

This game will be close and we will probably go into the locker room at the half trailing by 4 or 5 points but I think we get control of this one late and eke out a win 89 - 84.

It's a road game so it could go either way.  And we need to be prepared for that reality.  Remember....split on the road and we have seven more road games after tonight.  Just my perspective.

I know it's early but I can't remember a recent season where we started conference play tied with Kentucky for 1st place.  This just might be another year similar to the early 90's.

Yeah, or at least keep the ball in Macon's hands if it's a tight game late.

I think the Hogs get mauled by MSU in their place and the refs steal the game from the Hogs.

The Hogs have always struggled at "The Hump". The ref's seem to take control in these games for the Hogs. Sigh.

Very true. We have eight more after tonight. Seven more after this week.

According to this site: https://www.teamrankings.com/ncaa-basketball/team/arkansas-razorbacks/projections, MSU, by the numbers, is our second "easiest" road game. Ole Miss and LSU are the most and third most likely road wins, followed by UGA. In each of these games, our odds are decent for a win. Against Bama, AU, Mizzou and even Fla we are in a toss-up game. Only game we're not given much of a shot to win is at A&M.

Be nice to win the four that we should win and split the four toss-up games. Then, even with a "likely" loss at A&M we'd still finish 6-3 on the road. Couple that with either 8-1 or 9-0 at home and we'll be in great shape come SEC tourney time.

I'm viewing road games, at best, as 50/50 this season. So I'm not making a prediction here. Don't have a great feel on MSU, either, since their schedule has been so soft, but I do figure they'll be improved. I see the Hogs winning 4-5 SEC road games this season based on talent and how the team has played so far. I've learned now from the past not to get caught up in which road games we should win (example: Missouri last season). I don't really have a take so I'm just hoping for a win and thinking it'll all shake out to where the Hogs win 4 or 5 on the road.

Maybe after I've seen a little more league play and the Hogs on the road I'll make a prediction.

Hard for me to expect a win in Starkville.  Anyone know how many we've won there in SEC play?

MSU beat the Hogs last year in Fayetteville and return almost everyone.

Hogs shot 34% at Houston and generally don't shoot well in Starkville.

Barford and Macon give us a chance anywhere, anytime.  Hope Gafford can get 20 solid minutes.

Here's how our RPI will look without any other factors (how other teams/non-con perform tonight.) Since MSU has a great record we have much more to gain tonight than we have to lose, though I still feel like this is a game we should win.

Current Hogs RPI

RPI: 4
SOS: 11

If we win:

RPI: 2 (#2-#4 would be within hairs of each other, right now the gap between us and #3 is the same as our gap with us & #9.)
SOS: 8

If we lose:

RPI: 6 (could drop as low as 10, as the 5-10 teams are all close)
SOS: 7

Jeff Sagarin's PREDICTOR has us at 6 point favorites with a 70% chance of winning.

I think this'll be an ugly road win. They played well in the 2nd half of their last game, so I wouldn't even feel safe with a lead going into halftime as you normally would with this Hogs team. This is a game we should win, but won't be surprised in the least if we slip up.

I am worried we might go 0-2 this week.  After that tough game Saturday, it might be hard for us to expend the energy necessary to win in Starkville.  Then, I actually think Auburn is better than Mississippi State.  They are so athletic.  I know we are a different team this year, but this looks like a really tough week.  I hope I'm wrong.

Egads this scares me!!  We win by making free throws, on the road?  Please do not let it come down to this.  Hogs pull out a tough road game not playing their usual style, 77-72.
