Auburn is 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight home games, 3-7 against the spread following a win, and 4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Mississippi is 5-1-1 against the spread in their last eight road games, 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games, and 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six road games against a team with a winning home record. The home team has covered the point spread in five of the last seven meetings of these two.
Auburn got the win last time out but I don’t see them repeating here with Ole Miss making a tourney run.
