LSU at Ole Miss

No. 10 LSU is rarely an underdog, but the Tigers find themselves in that role Saturday when they face Mississippi at 3:30PM ET from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Bet LSU at Mississippi
The Tigers are 8-2 this season and 4-5-1 against the spread. LSU’s two losses came against Florida and Alabama. LSU has failed to cover in its last two games and the Tigers have only been an underdog in three games this season, going 1-2 against the spread in those games.

Ole Miss is 7-3 on the year and 5-3 against the spread. The Rebels have won two straight and four of their last five. The Rebels have been favored in all but one game. The Rebels snapped a six-game losing streak to LSU in last year’s 31-13 win in Baton Rouge.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Mississippi 3-point home favorites over LSU on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 42.

Ole Miss has one of the top offenses in the SEC, posting 31.3 points per-game. The Tigers have a great defense, giving up only 13.7 points and 311.8 yards per-game. Jevan Snead has had a disappointing season for Ole Miss at quarterback, throwing for 1,983 yards and 17 touchdowns with 14 interceptions.

LSU has struggled offensively, averaging just 25 points and 310 yards per-game. The Rebels have been a good defense, only giving up 15.9 points and 313 yards per-game. Jordan Jefferson has thrown for 1,535 yards and 12 touchdowns with four interceptions.

The key in this pick is the fact that Ole Miss’ offense appears to be stronger while both defenses are comparable. LSU has struggled in low-scoring games against top SEC teams and this may be no different. The rankings would seem to lead you to taking LSU and the points, but the point spread odds are what they are for a reason and we suggest taking the Rebels at home minus the points. We also suggest the under in a defensive battle such as this.
