The start of November, an SEC rivalry, both teams in the top four in the inaugural rankings for the College Football Playoff, it just does not get any better than this.
On Saturday, the Auburn Tigers visit the Ole Miss Rebels in what should be an exciting game under the lights.
Ole Miss is looking to rebound from its first loss of this season.
However, Auburn has won four of the past five head-to-head games versus Ole Miss, both straight up and against the number.
Both teams must win if they hope to remain in the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings.
The current line has Ole Miss favored by 2.5 points with the point total sitting on 51.
Auburn is 4-1 SU as well as ATS in its past 5 games versus Mississippi. The Tigers are also 4-1 ATS in its past 5 games on the road versus opponents from the SEC. The Tigers are 3-1 ATS over its past four games as a road ‘dog.
The Rebels are 4-0 ATS over their past 4 games as a favorite at home. Ole Miss has covered the spread in 7 of its past 10 games played at home versus opponents from the SEC.
The OVER has cashed in each of the past three games Auburn has played as a road ‘dog. The OVER has cashed in 7 of the past 10 games Ole Miss has played as the favorite at home.
Head to head the OVER has cashed in 4 of the past 5 games between the Tigers and Rebels.
Last week Ole Miss faced another must win game to be considered a legitimate contender for the national championship. The Rebels came up short when they lost to LSU 10-7.
However, the selection committee for the College Football Playoff kept Ole Miss for the time being in the top 4.
Many football observers believe Ole Miss will make the final four if they can run the table from here on out. That includes Auburn today and Mississippi State to end the regular season, which is no easy task
Auburn has a daunting task ahead of them as well.
The Tigers this month have to play on the road against Ole Miss today, Georgia and Alabama. They have to also play at home versus Samford and Texas A&M.
Ole Miss loves the UNDER. The UNDER has cashed in 7 of the Rebels 8 games this season and 10 of their last 11 dating back to last season.
With the pressure mounting on both teams to win, that could make the UNDER if more attractive.
The home side giving less than a field goal is a solid play.
I like Ole Miss and the UNDER.
