Bet Alabama Crimson Tide Because…
Alabama’s defense might be better this season than it was last season. The Crimson Tide dominated USC. They held a high-scoring Western Kentucky team to only 10 points. Alabama’s defense is allowing 216.5 total yards per game. It’s allowing 43.5 rush yards per game to go along with 8 total points per.
Bet Ole Miss Rebels Because…
The trends point to an Ole Miss victory…at least against the spread. The Rebels are 7 and 3 ATS in their last 10 home games. Alabama is 2 and 5 ATS in the last 7 meeting in Mississippi. The Crimson Tide is 3 and 8 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall. Ole Miss just knows how to be competitive against Alabama.
Bama vs Ole Miss Expert Pick
Alabama isn’t known as a spread covering team. The Crimson Tide won the National Championship last season, but they didn’t do it by dominating teams ATS. They did it by playing smart football.
Eventually, Alabama is going to start losing against the spread even though they should keep winning games. This is, by far, the best offense that Alabama’s excellent defense has faced this season. Ole Miss should be good for at least 7 more points than what Western Kentucky was good for.
I think this ends up another close Alabama versus Ole Miss battle. I think that the Tide win the game, but the Rebels are going to keep it close.
