Ole Miss Betting Trends
The Rebels have dropped six of their last seven road games against the spread, are just 1-10 against the number in their last 11 games overall, and are 1-6 against the number in their last seven conference games. They’re also winless at 0-5 at the betting window in their last five games coming off a loss.
Auburn Betting Trends
The Tigers are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five games in October, are 7-2 against the number in their last nine conference games, and are 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight home games. They’ve also covered in eight of their last 11 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: Auburn is the only team in FBS yet to allow more than 14 points in a game this season. The Tigers defense has been outstanding and bad news for SEC opponents: Their offense is starting to find a rythem, too. Gus Malzahn has seemingly found an offensive line combination that works and former Baylor transfer Jarrett Stidham is looking more comfortable by the week. He leads the SEC in completion percentage (72%) and has a punishing running game that he can lean on to help take pressure of the passing attack. Ole Miss, meanwhile, is averaging fewer than 75 yards per game on the ground this year and quarterback Shea Patterson hasn’t fared well against opponents not named South Alabama and Tennessee-Martin. Good luck, Rebels.
