A pair of struggling SEC teams try to turn their season around this evening when Ole Miss Rebels host a game against the Missouri Tigers at Sandy and John Black Pavillion. The Rebels entered the game with a 9-7 overall record and a 1-3 difference in the SEC play. Ole Miss have lost four of their last five games, including their last against Auburn after a good start to the year. Looks like they can’t blend in with the other good teams in the SEC.
Luckily for Ole Miss, Missouri wasn’t one of the “good” SEC teams, and entered this game with a 7-9 overall record. Most recently, they suffered a 67-64 loss to Texas A&M.
The Rebels wiped out Missouri last year but have looked weak in the last few games and are a hard to believe team. The Tigers are being beaten 3-2 ATS when defeated and 2-2 ATS in the conference match.
Here are the current odds for this SEC head-to-head, with support from WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 133.5 (Over -105 / Under -115)
The Tigers are about to have a particularly tough loss to Texas A&M. After gaining 13 points at the end of the second quarter and taking the lead in the second half, Missouri came out in the second half and completely collapsed. Their defense was cleared and allowed the Aggies to return to the game. The Missouris’ offense also disappeared, and the Aggies led with less than a minute to win the game. The game highlights the biggest problem the Tigers are currently facing. They are just not very good. They didn’t have much excitement on either side of the ball with them taking 50% fewer shots from either side and letting their opponents shoot 50.5% from their own half.
Ole Miss will need more from their attack tonight than they have achieved recently but their defence is pretty solid. Rebels are 94th in defense with an average of 65.4 points per game. Their offense now averages 69.3 PPG when shooting 49.3 percent.
While both teams are having some offensive problems, Ole Miss has a much better team than Missouri. Even in their losses, Ole Miss was at least competitive and played a solid match against Auburn despite the loss. Meanwhile, the Tigers are trash on the road when they lost at least 20 points in the last 6 away matches.
Pick: Ole Miss -7.5 (-110)
