The Tide had four listed as out or questionable for today’s game, hurting their depth.

Alabama

The Crimson Tide are 1-7 against the spread in their last 8 SEC games and 0-5 ATS in their last five following a loss.

Ole Miss

The Rebels are 13-3 against the spread in their last 16 games following a win and 24-8 ATS in their last 32 overall.

Prediction:

Bama got a convincing win over Ole Miss on Jan. 22, 74-53. However, that was a home game for the Tide and they were much healthier then. Bama doesn’t have the depth that it did then and Ole Miss has really turned the corner since. Despite losing three of their last four, they were right with Tennessee and Kentucky. Most of their games have been down to the wire, but this isn’t a big spread to cover.

College Basketball Prediction: Ole Miss -3
