The Ole Miss Rebels are 19-9 this season but they are coming off of a tough home loss to Georgia in a game they trailed the whole way. Ole Miss is averaging 73 points and they are shooting 43 percent while defensively they are allowing 66.7 points and their opponents are shooting 39.7 percent. Stefan Moody leads the Rebels averaging 16.5 points per game. Jarvis Summers is averaging 12.3 points, Ladarius White is averaging 10.7 points, and Sebastian Saiz is averaging 7.5 points and 5.4 rebounds. Ole Miss is 7-3 on the road and 10-5 in the SEC.
LSU is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 5-1 against the spread against the SEC, and 6-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Ole Miss is 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games, 7-1-1 against the spread in their last nine road games against a team with a winning home record, and 5-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread. Ole Miss has covered the point spread in four of their last five trips to LSU.
I see this one being close and the points figuring so my pick here is for Ole Miss to get the cover in a game that could go either way outright.
