Betting on the LSU Tigers (+10)
Record: 4-3 Overall / 2-2 Conference
Ed Orgeron’s seat just got cooler — a lot cooler. That’s after LSU found a way to upset No. 20 Florida Gators at home over the weekend to the tune of a 49-42 score. Speaking of finding a way, it’s LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who rolled the red carpet for the Tigers’ upset win over Florida. All he did was rush for 287 yards and three touchdowns on 36 carries to set a new LSU record. The Tigers entered that game averaging just 75.2 rushing yards per game, but they seem to have figured things out in terms of run blocking. That’s scary for Ole Miss, which doesn’t have a stout defense, especially against the run. The Rebels woke up last Saturday just 110th in the nation with 213.5 rushing yards allowed per game and 91st with 4.6 rushing yards per carry. Look for TDP to have another field day in toting the rock.
The over is 7-3 in LSU’s last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Ole Miss Rebels (-10)
Record: 5-1 Overall / 2-1 Conference
Make that two wins in a row for Lane Kiffin’s Rebels following their 42-21 loss in Tuscaloosa. After losing to the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ole Miss has collected a 52-51 win over then-No. 13 Arkansas Razorbacks (Oct. 9) and a 31-26 road win over the Tennessee Volunteers last Saturday. No one has really made Ole Miss bleed for its points. Matt Corral is arguably the best quarterback in the nation. He is behind Ole Miss’ offense that arrived in Knoxville as the highest-scoring team in the SEC (and fourth-best nationally) with 46.2 points per game. The Tigers can threaten Ole Miss with their emergent offense, but the Rebels have the talent to outscore almost any team in the FBS. If the Tigers want this game to be a high-scoring game, Ole Miss will make them their guests.
Ole Miss is 5-4-1 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Ole Miss wins, 34-30.
