Ole Miss is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, 4-1 against the spread following a win, and 7-3 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Tennessee is 6-0 against the spread in their last six road games, 4-1 against the spread following a double-digit home loss, and 4-1 against the spread following a game they scored less than 50 points. The underdog has covered the point spread in seven of the last 10 meetings of these two.
At 134 the books look to have to total about right so it is a slight lean to the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as the App.
