Ole Miss is on a crazy streak right now as they have won and covered the spread in 10 straight games following an 81-77 win at Mississippi State this past weekend. The Rebels are 13-2 on the season, 3-0 in the SEC, 7-0 at home, 14-1 against the spread and 8-7 with the under.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Tigers are 3-0-1 against the spread in their last 4 SEC games, but 2-8-3 ATS in their last 13 road games.
Ole Miss has covered the spread in six straight home games and in four straight SEC contests.
Ole Miss is on a crazy run right now. Covering in 10 straight games is pretty impressive. The covers have come against respectable teams as of late, winning at Vandy and Mississippi State, as well as a 15-point win at home over Auburn. LSU is playing well right now too, but their defense has really struggled on the road, giving up 85 points per game. Ole Miss is 7-0 against the spread at home this season and the spread for this game is pretty small. I am going to continue to ride the hot team.
