OLE MISS REBELS
The Rebels are 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games, are 0-4 against the number in their last four games overall, and are just 1-5 against the number in their last six non-conference games. Finally, they're just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games played in the month September.
The Golden Bears have failed to cover in 23 of their last 34 home games and are 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games overall. They're also winless at 0-5 against the spread in their last five games versus a team with a winning record and are 0-4 against the number in their last four games coming off a win.
OUR PREDICTION: UT-Martin rushed for 219 yards while averaging five yards per attempt versus Ole Miss last week. Granted, the Bears will be without Tre Watson (leg), but former walk-on Patrick Laird is more than capable of leading Cal to victory tonight. Ross Bowers and Vic Wharton III are also dangerous weapons for the Rebels to deal with and with this being a late game in Cal, I'll take the underdog.
