The Grizzlies are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Rebels are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 18-7-2 ATS in their last 27 games following a straight up loss. The over is 7-3 in Rebels last 10 overall and the under is 4-1 in Grizzlies last 5 overall.
Montana is battle tested early after playing Wyoming, NC State and others already this season, but I'm not sure the Grizzlies have the offensive firepower to hang with Ole Miss. The Rebels have been an offensive machine out of the gate and have proven to be dangerous when those outside shots are falling. I'll side with Ole Miss to win this thing by double digits.
