The Pick

Auburn -3.5

The Tigers are not playing their best basketball with two recent losses, but they should be focused and motivated to play well so they don’t start to slide down on the bracket down the stretch. Auburn is one of the top teams in the sport that is a Final Four contender, and they should handle a Mississippi State team that will likely not be an NCAA Tournament team.
