The Auburn Tigers and the Ole Miss Rebels meet in college basketball action from the Pavilion on Tuesday.
Auburn rolls in here at 17-2 so far. Since falling in consecutive games to Alabama and Florida, the Tigers have won their last two games versus South Carolina and Iowa State.
In the win over the Cyclones, Auburn’s Isaac Okoro put up 19 points with two assists and two rebounds. Samir Doughty posted 18 points, six rebounds and five assists there, and both Danjel Purifoy and J’Von McCormick had 11 points apiece.
Over on the Mississippi side, they’re 10-9 this season. After a six-game losing streak to Wichita State, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Florida, LSU and Tennessee, Ole Miss beat Georgia their last time out.
In the win over the Bulldogs, Mississippi’s Breein Tyree led the team with 20 points, four rebounds and four assists. Khadim Sy had 16 points and four rebounds there, and KJ Buffen had 14 points with four rebounds.
The Rebels are 0-6 ATS in their last six Tuesday games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four home games. Ole Miss is 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS win and 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine overall.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 after a straight-up win. The under is 7-1 in Auburn’s last eight road games and 3-1-1 in their last five overall.
Since a pretty bad showing of 111 combined points in blowout losses to Alabama and Florida, the Tigers have rebounded nicely with 80 points in each of their last two games. Seems Auburn is back on track.
As for Mississippi, they’ve been pretty spotty when it comes to putting up points, as evidinced by 48 versus Tennessee and 55 versus Florida. All things considered here, I’m going to stick with Auburn as the better cover option.
