Mississippi were given their first loss so far this season, but sports software services know that the Rebels still have a ranking of one of the best teams in NCAA football, and certainly one to make a bet on, as they have a record of 6-1-1 ATS. Ole Miss will do everything they can to return to winning ways when they take on Auburn – defending champions of the SEC – at home on Saturday.
Ole Miss’ betting line opened with the Rebels being the favorites by three points.
Auburn were able to bounce back after they suffered their season’s first defeat, when they lost 42-35 to South Carolina at Mississippi State. The Tigers were able to record 551 offensive yards when they took on the Gamecocks, and 395 of them were made on the ground. Three Auburn players – Nick Marshall, Cameron Artis-Payne, and Ricardo Louis were all able to run for 89 yards – at least.
The Tigers have a ranking of 20th place in the country when it comes to their total offense. In total defense they’re ranked 46th, and this season they were able to outrush their foes by a 161 yards-per-game average. Auburn will take on a very solid defense when they face the Rebels, but last year against Ole Miss, the Tigers ran for 282 yards in a win of 30-22.
Ole Miss ended up losing at 10-7 what proved to be a very difficult clash against LSU, losing with only five minutes left to the game. The Rebels were able to hang on to a lead as much as possible and for as long as possible, but QB Bo Wallace got what could be his season’s most difficult game, as he only completed 14 out of 33 passes made. As he moved into that meeting, the senior QB was able to make it on 64 percent of his passes, with only six interceptions made and 17 TD’s.
When it comes to their offense, Ole Miss have a ranking of only 64th place overall, but the Rebels’ defense is ranked at ninth place overall, and sports software services can see that they are first in allowed points, with only 11 for each game played.
The Tigers were able to outgain every single team that they took on so far this season except for one, and they were all outrushed by them. On the other hand, the Rebels ended up being outgained in three out of their last four meetings. Therefore, many fans believe that Auburn will be the ones to own the game.
