Ole Miss is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games, 4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 5-2 against the spread following a win. LSU is 5-2-1 against the spread following a win, 2-0-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 1-3-1 against the spread against the SEC. The favorite has won six of the last eight meetings of these two.
The total on this one is on the high side and I see the only way this goes iver is if the gsame goes to OT and that isn't a great bet. I also have a pick on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
