The Chattanooga Mocs and Ole Miss Rebels meet Sunday in college basketball action at The Pavilion at Ole Miss.

The Chattanooga Mocs could use a big victory here to get back to a .500 record. The Chattanooga Mocs are averaging 68.6 points on 40.4 percent shooting and allowing 73.7 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Kevin Easley is averaging 15.8 points and 6.1 rebounds while Jerry Johnson Jr. is averaging 11.7 points and 2.5 assists. Donovann Toatley is the third double-digit scorer and David Jean-Baptiste is grabbing 2.1 rebounds. The Chattanooga Mocs are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 70.5 percent from the free throw line. The Chattanooga Mocs are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32 rebounds per game. The Chattanooga Mocs have lost three of their last four road games.

The Ole Miss Rebels look to stay hot while building on their four-game winning streak. The Ole Miss Rebels are averaging 78 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 67.8 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Breein Tyree is averaging 16.7 points and 3.2 assists while Terence Davis is averaging 15.3 points and 4.9 rebounds. Devontae Shuler is the third double-digit scorer and Bruce Stevens is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Ole Miss Rebels are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Ole Miss Rebels are allowing 32.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.1 rebounds per game. The Ole Miss Rebels have won their last four home games.

The Mocs are 4-16-2 ATS in their last 22 Sunday games, 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Southeastern and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Rebels are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 13-4 in Rebels last 17 home games. The over is 7-1 in Mocs last 8 games following a ATS win.

The Chattanooga Mocs are an awful offensive team no matter where they play, but their poor production drops to 69.2 points on 39.5 percent shooting when playing on the road. The Ole Miss Rebels are shooting nearly 54 percent from the field while outscoring teams by 19 points at home this season. Ole Miss has also been one of the better covering teams in the SEC, which includes six covers in its last seven at home. I'll eat the heavy number. 

Pick:
Mississippi Rebels -22
