College Basketball Betting Trends

Mississippi

The Rebels are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 road games. Mississippi is 4-1 ATS in its last five Saturday games.

Memphis

The Tigers are 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Memphis is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games versus the SEC.

Prediction:

The Tigers are still full of talent even without Wiseman and his absence, while a needless punishment handed by the NCAA, could help make them stronger once conference plus tournament play rolls around. While Ole Miss is 4-0, its schedule has been weak thus far and there has not yet been a road game. I don't see the Rebels being fully prepared for this kind of opponent or atmosphere. I'm giving the points and taking the Tigers in this contest.
