The Ole Miss Rebels could use a nice home victory to snap back-to-back losses and get back to a .500 record. The Ole Miss Rebels have six wins over ranked teams since last season. Chad Kelly is completing 62.2 percent of his passes for 2,067 yards, 15 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Kelly has two or more touchdown passes in 10 of his last 13 games. Evan Engram and Damore'ea Stringfellow have combined for 1,028 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Van Jefferson has 26 receptions. The Ole Miss Rebels ground game is averaging 148.8 yards per contest, and Akeem Judd leads the way with 382 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Ole Miss is allowing 31.4 points and 455.9 yards per game. DeMarquis Gates leads the Ole Miss Rebels with 44 tackles, Marquis Haynes has five sacks and Derrick Jones has two interceptions.
The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Rebels are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up loss. The Tigers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings in Mississippi and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings overall.
Auburn has been one of the biggest surprises within the last month and has completely turned its season around. However, can we pump the breaks a bit? Auburn was at home during three of its four victories and its only road win of the season came against Mississippi State. I'm not sure I'm solid on the Auburn Tigers just yet. Meanwhile, Ole Miss always plays ranked teams tough, especially at home. The Rebels haven't looked good lately, but Ole Miss has won five of its last seven home games. Those losses came to Alabama this year and a overtime loss last season to Arkansas.
Give me Ole Miss and the points in a game it could win outright.
