The LSU Tigers and Ole Miss Rebels meet Tuesday in college basketball action at The Pavilion at Ole Miss.
The LSU Tigers look for another victory to build on their five-game winning streak. The LSU Tigers are averaging 82.1 points on 49.2 percent shooting and allowing 71.8 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Skylar Mays is averaging 13.3 points and 3.3 rebounds while Tremont Waters is averaging 13.2 points and six assists. Naz Reid is the third double-digit scorer and Ja'vonte Smart is dishing 2.6 assists. The LSU Tigers are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The LSU Tigers are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.3 rebounds per game. The LSU Tigers have split their first two road games this season.
The Ole Miss Rebels look to keep the ball rolling while building on their 10-game winning streak. The Ole Miss Rebels are averaging 79.8 points on 49.9 percent shooting and allowing 67.2 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Breein Tyree is averaging 17.5 points and 3.3 assists while Terence Davis is averaging 15.7 points and 5.6 rebounds. Devontae Shuler is the third double-digit scorer and Blake Hinson is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The Ole Miss Rebels are shooting 38.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.1 percent from the free throw line. The Ole Miss Rebels are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.3 rebounds per game. The Ole Miss Rebels have won all seven home games this season.
The Tigers are 2-8-3 ATS in their last 13 road games, 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 vs. Southeastern and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rebels are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Southeastern and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The favorite is 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Rebels last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Tigers last 6 overall.
The LSU Tigers are shooting 50.7 percent from the field in their last five games, but they've struggled defensively in non-home games and haven't had much success in covering numbers outside of Louisiana. The Ole Miss Rebels are coming off a really strong win over Mississippi State and are making a strong case as a top team in the SEC. Ole Miss has not only been a covering machine up to this point, but it's a club that's outscoring teams by 20.1 points at home while shooting 53.4 percent from the field. Ole Miss is a team that's starting to grow on me, especially after the upset win over the Bulldogs. I'll eat the reasonable chalk.
