Mississippi (3-3 SU, 3-2 ATS) has already been a giant killer once this season, travelling into the Swamp and coming out with a 31-30 win even though NCAA odds had the Rebels installed as lofty 23-point underdogs.
Two weeks ago, the Crimson Tide (6-0 SU, 4-2 ATS) got quite a scare against a Kentucky team that played them close the whole way but they ultimately held on for the 17-14 home win. The Rebels last game was two weeks ago, a 31-24 loss on Homecoming to South Carolina where they were unable to cover the NCAA betting line.
HC Houston Nutt has turned this program around and with one more win will match their most wins in any of former HC Ed Orgeron’s three seasons. WR Dexter McCluster has been a welcome surprise this season for the Rebels and is second in the SEC in receiving with 25 catches for 411 yards but has hit pay-dirt just once.
Interesting to note for gamblers who bet on NCAA football is that both of the Rebels road games have gone over the ‘total’ this season. Alabama has been on a tear so far this college football wagering season, beating Top 10 ranked Clemson and Georgia in the first month en route to their #2 overall ranking.
A solid defense and a great rushing attack have been key for this team in their early season success. RB Glen Coffee is leading the SEC in rushing so far with 708 rushing yards and five touchdowns on only 95 overall carries.
Despite their recent success however, college football bettors backing them at home have been burned, as the Crimson Tide have failed to cover four of their last five home games and are winless ATS their last six times Vegas installed them as a home favorite.
The college football odds have the Crimson Tide pegged as 13.5-point home favorites in this SEC West game. No matter if you want to bet Alabama or Ole Miss, the over or the under, sports gamblers can agree that the place to bet this game and wager on college football in general, is Sports-Gambling.com Sportsbook.
