Ole Miss vs Auburn Betting Prediction

Auburn is one of the hottest teams in the country right now and they are looking for their 11th straight win in this game. The Tigers will be at home for this matchup and they are scoring 83.8 points per game this year. Ole Miss is 15-2 on the season, but they have lost two of their last four games, with both losses coming on the road by 9 and 26 points. The Rebels have a great record, but they also don’t have many quality wins, especially on the road. I think this game is going to be similar to Ole Miss’ blowout loss to Tennessee, and I like Auburn to win big at home.
