Auburn is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Ole Miss is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games as a home underdog while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss. Auburn is 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams at Ole Miss.
I’ve gone back and forth on this game, as Auburn’s been tough to get a feel for, but the Tigers did beat an Arkansas team that just picked up a win over Ole Miss over the weekend and while the defense continued to struggle for the Rebels, this time it was the offense that sputtered for Ole Miss and it cost the Rebels big time. I’m not going anywhere near this game, but if forced to pick, Auburn’s been easier to stomach on defense and I think side-by-side they’re the better team so I’ll lay the points with Auburn on the road.
