Week 7 Online Football Betting Features No. 14 Texas A&M Hosts No. 3 Ole Miss in SEC Showdown
Mississippi (5-0 SU, 5-0 ATS) remained unbeaten by knocking off previously No. 1 Alabama in its shocking (but very legitimate) 23-17 Week 6 win as a 5.5-point home underdog.
Texas A&M (5-1 SU, 3-3 ATS) was knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten by getting smacked around by Mississippi State in its stunning 48-31 Week 6 loss as a 2.5-point road dog.
A lot of folks were surprised by Mississippi’s upset win over Alabama last week, but I wasn’t and hopefully you cashed in on my Week 6 pick on that affair. If not, then you should know that I’m coming right back with Bo Wallace and the Rebels in this contest for several reasons.
First and foremost, I’m a huge believe in Mississippi’s fantastic defense, which is ranked second in the nation in points allowed (10.2). I’m also not a real big believer any more in Texas A&M and Kenny Hill after seeing the Aggies get b*#&h-slapped around by Dak Prescott and Mississippi State last weekend.
Not only couldn’t the Aggies stop the gifted dual threat Prescott, but the Aggies also saw Hill take a huge step backwards and prove why he’s no Johnny Manziel in tossing three interceptions against a Bulldogs defense that, while very good, isn’t nearly as solid as the defense Hill will face from the Rebels this weekend.
"They haven’t changed much in the pass game or the tailback run game," Rebels head coach Hugh Freeze said. "They had very few designed runs for Manziel, but he created a lot with his legs. It’s a little different. Their quarterbacks are still athletic, but it’s not like defending him in the run, where you always worry about if you have a spy for him."
Wallace succinctly summed up his feelings – and mine – following last week’s win over Alabama.
"We now know what we thought we already knew," Wallace said. "We know that we can compete with any team in the country. Now it’s just getting to work and making sure we take every day as an opportunity to get better."
While Texas A&M has won the only two meetings between these schools since joining the SEC two years ago, I really like Mississippi to get some revenge in this one.
The Rebels are an unbeaten, 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games while Texas A&M has gone 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and a disappointing 1-5 ATS in their last six conference games.
If you don’t like the Rebels to cover the ATS spread at the very least, then you don’t know Bo!
My Pick: Mississippi +2.5 Points
