College Basketball Betting Trends
The Tigers are 2-2 ATS in the last four meetings. All four meetings have gone under the total the last three seasons.
The Rebels are 0-6 ATS on Tuesday nights this season. Ole Miss is 99-70 ATS as an underdog since 1997.
The Tigers have lost their last two road games very badly at Florida and Alabama, but overall they are having a tremendous season. The problem I have here is that they have beaten up on a home-friendly schedule and overall the schedule has not been full of tough opponents. I'm going to bank on their road struggles continuing here against a Rebels squad that built some confidence over the weekend.
