Ole Miss vs. Arkansas Prediction
After getting blown out by Alabama last week, will Arkansas keep it closer with Ole Miss tonight at 7:00PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Razorbacks are 7.5-point home underdogs versus the Rebels after opening as a touchdown-sized dog earlier this week. The total, meanwhile, opened at 65.5 but has jumped to 67.5.
The Rebels are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall and are a perfect 4-0 against the number in their last four conference games. That said, Ole Miss is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five road games and 2-6 at the betting window in its last eight road games versus a team with a winning home record.
The Razorbacks have covered in nine of their last 13 games following a loss and are 17-8 at the betting window in their last 25 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game. That said, they're 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games following a double-digit loss at home and are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: The underdog is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the Rebels are just 3-9 at the betting window in their last 12 games versus the Razorbacks and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games in Arkansas. Ole Miss has outscored its opponents by 18.2 points per game in the first half this season but has been outscored by 6.2 PPG in the second half, so don't panic if the Rebels jump out to an early lead. The Razorbacks should put up enough second half points to stay within the 7.5 spread.
