The Line: LSU Tigers -6.5 -- Over/Under:
The Ole Miss Rebels and LSU Tigers meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
The Ole Miss Rebels need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Ole Miss Rebels are averaging 77 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 76.7 points on 43 percent shooting. Deandre Burnett is averaging 14.4 points and 4.4 assists while Terence Davis is averaging 13.8 points and 6.1 rebounds. Bruce Stevens is the third double-digit scorer and Breein Tyree is grabbing 2.3 rebounds. The Ole Miss Rebels are shooting 33.5 percent from beyond the arc and 73.3 percent from the free throw line. The Ole Miss Rebels are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.5 rebounds per game. The Ole Miss Rebels have lost 10 of their last 13 road games.
The LSU Tigers also need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The LSU Tigers are averaging 78 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 73.6 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Tremont Waters is averaging 15 points and 5.9 assists while Duop Reath is averaging 13.7 points and 5.4 rebounds. Skylar Mays is the third double-digit scorer and Aaron Epps is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The LSU Tigers are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 74 percent from the free throw line. The LSU Tigers are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.4 rebounds per game. The LSU Tigers have split their last eight home games.
The Rebels are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games, 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 Saturday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Tigers are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Southeastern, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Rebels are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Louisiana State, 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Ole Miss Rebels are trash on the road dating back to last season to put it nicely, and they're being outscored by 14 points on the road this season. LSU is an inconsistent team and isn't playing well right now, but it has shown the ability to beat teams up at home and the home team team has won seven of the last nine meetings between these clubs, majority in blowout fashion. I'll eat the chalk with the LSU Tigers as more of a fade from Ole Miss.
