The Troy Trojans are 5-5 this season and they are coming off of a win that ended a two game losing skid. Troy is averaging 76.4 points and they are shooting 42.7 percent while defensively they are allowing 75.8 points and their opponents are shooting 41.6 percent. Wesley Person leads the Trojans averaging 18 points per game. Jordan Varnado is averaging 17.7 points and 8.3 rebounds, Jeremy Hollimon is averaging 11.8 points, and John Walton III is averaging 8.3 points and 8.3 rebounds. Troy has been far from impressive so far this season.
Ole Miss is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games, 4-1 against the spread following a win, and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games. Troy is 3-8-1 against the spread in their last 12 games, 0-2-2 against the spread against the SEC, and 2-5 against the spread in their last seven non-conference games.
There is a monster number on this one but I still see Ole Miss covering as they are the far better team.
