The Rebels are 6-1 ATS in their last seven Saturday games. Mississippi is 17-4 ATS in its last 21 games overall.
The Rebels won the previous matchup 81-77 at Mississippi State and will now be going for the sweep today. Both teams are better on the offensive end of the floor and with Mississippi being at home today, I it finds the basket with a little more frequency as it uses the home advantage to get some timely stops. The Rebels are desperate for a win and who better to do it against than a rival?
