The Arkansas Razorbacks and the Ole Miss Rebels face off on Saturday in a week 13 SEC college football battle.

The Ole Miss Rebels are coming off of a bye week and faced Presbyterian in their game prior to that so they are well rested after running through a brutal schedule. The Ole Miss offense is averaging 33.4 points and 447.1 yards per game and they are led by QB Bo Wallace who has completed 64 percent of his passes with 22 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Jaylen Walton leads Mississippi in rushing with 398 yards and Vince Sanders in the Rebels leading receiver since Laquon Treadwell suffered his season ending injury. The Ole Miss defense allows 11.9 points and 309.8 yards per game with 27 forced turnovers and 20 sacks. Mike Hilton and Tony Conner each have 54 tackles and Senquez Golson has nine interceptions. Ole Miss is really one tough play from being part of the college football playoff.
Arkansas is 8-1 against the spread in their last nine games, 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, and 4-0 against the spread following a win. Ole Miss is 5-1-1 against the spread following a win, 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games, and 3-1-1 against the spread following a win by 20 or more points. Ole Miss is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games at Arkansas.
Ole Miss is going to be well rested and when they are at the top of their game they are the best team in the nation this year and I see Ole Miss winning this one and covering the spread.
