Rebels end skid
Ole Miss put an end to its two-game losing streak last weekend with a 31-6 win at home over Vanderbilt. The Rebels come into this game with a 3-3 record overall and a 2-1 mark in the SEC. Ole Miss is 3-3 against the spread and 3-3 with the over/under total.
The Rebels are putting up 27.2 points and 438.2 yards per game on offense this season while the defense is allowing 25.7 points and 395.3 yards per game. Matt Corral has thrown or 844 yards and four touchdowns this season, but he has missed the last two games with a rib injury and is questionable to play on Saturday. John Rhys Plumlee has filled in for him and has thrown for 322 yards and two scores. Plumlee also has rushed for 327 yards and two touchdowns as a dual-threat option. Scottie Phillips is the leading rusher with 451 yards and five touchdowns. Elijah Moore is the leading receiver on the team with 36 catches for 460 yards and three touchdowns.
Missouri winning with defense
The Tigers enter this week with one of the top defenses in the nation. Missouri is giving up just 13.6 points and 227.2 yards per game. Cale Garrett is leading the unit with 39 tackles and three interceptions. Offensively, Missouri is putting up 39 points and 456.8 yards per contest. Former Clemson QB Kelly Bryant has thrown for 1,256 yards and 11 touchdowns to lead the offense. He got a scare last week with a knee injury, but is probable to play on Saturday. Larry Rountree III is leading the Missouri ground game with 431 yards and five touchdowns while Jonathan Nance is the leading receiver with 11 catches for 225 yards.
College Football Betting Trends
The Rebels are just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 conference games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 against a winning team.
The Tigers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five SEC games and 5-0 ATS in their last five home games.
Missouri has won and covered in its last three meetings with Ole Miss, but these two haven’t collided since 2013. Ole Miss has lost twice this year, but the losses were to two teams ranked at the time in Alabama and Cal. Missouri had its loss come at Wyoming. While the Tigers have looked good the last four weeks, they haven’t exactly faced the cream of the crop. Kelly Bryant has brought something to the offense and the defense looks tough, but I think Ole Miss is going to provide a bigger challenge than what the Tigers have seen thus far. The Rebels won’t be surprised by anything Missouri can throw at them. No matter who is at QB, Ole Miss should be able to find some big plays and make this game come right down to the wire, if not win outright.
