The Missouri Tigers and the Ole Miss Rebels meet in SEC college basketball action from the Pavilion at Ole Miss on Saturday afternoon.
The Missouri Tigers come into this game looking for some form of consistency after splitting their last 4 games after a 79-78 win over Arkansas last time out. Jeremiah Tilmon led the Tigers with 21 points on 8 of 11 shooting with 3 blocks while Jordan Geist added 18 points on 5 of 14 shooting with 4 threes. Xavier Pinson chipped in 11 points with a team-high 9 rebounds and 3 assists to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Missouri in the win while Kevin Puryear contributed 8 points to match his 8 rebounds along with a pair of steals and a team-high 4 assists. Geist leads Missouri with an average of 13.8 points and 3.2 assists per game while Tilmon leads the Tigers in rebounding with 5.8 rebounds per game this season. As a team, Missouri is averaging 68.1 points per game on 43% shooting from the field, 36.6% from behind the arc and 69.9% from the foul line this season.
The Ole Miss Rebels will look to keep rolling after 3 straight wins following a 60-55 win over Auburn in their last outing. Breein Tyree led Ole Miss with 20 points on 6 of 12 shooting with 3 threes and 3 steals while Devontae Shuler added 17 points with 4 threes of his own along with a team-high 4 assists and a pair of steals as the only other Rebels player to score in double figures in the winning effort. Tyree leads Ole Miss in scoring with 18.6 points per game while Terence Davis leads the Rebels with averages of 6.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game this season. As a team, Ole Miss is averaging 77.2 points per game on 47% shooting from the field, 36.8% from behind the arc and 76.8% from the foul line this season.
Missouri is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 14-6 in their last 20 games following a win. Ole Miss is 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games overall and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 18-7 in their last 25 home games. The road team is 5-1-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.
The road team has had a lot of success ATS in this matchup, so points with Missouri are worth a look. However, Missouri hasn’t been great on the road and are being outscored by 10.3 points per game on the road on the year and have lost each of the last 3 and 4 of their last 5 conference road games by double digits. Ole Miss has had bumps of their own, but the Rebels have been a covering machine for much of the season so I’ll lay the points with Ole Miss in this one to keep their form going.
