The Alabama Crimson Tide (14-12, CONF 6-7) and Ole Miss Rebels (13-13, CONF 4-9) face off in an SEC showdown at Pavilion at Ole Miss.The Crimson Tide have won the last two games against Ole Miss.
One of the harder teams to figure out this season has been the Crimson Tide. Two games ago Alabama knocked off LSU in one of their more impressive wins of the season. The Crimson Tide followed up that victory with a terrible loss by six points against Texas A&M.
Away from home this season it’s all been about the offense where they are currently averaging 85.4 points while shooting 42.6 percent from the field. The Tide are led by Kira Lewis Jr. who is averaging 17.5 points and shooting 44.8 percent from the field.
The Rebels have also been super inconsistent this year, and coming into this game they have lost two games in a row. The Rebels are a good defensive team at home giving up 63.4 points, and if they want to win this game, the defense is going to need to step up in a big way.
Guard Breein Tyree is playing 34.3 minutes per game while averaging 20.3 points and 3.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists.
The Crimson Tide are averaging 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games. Alabama is 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The Rebels are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games overall. The over is 9-1 in the Rebels last ten home games.
The Rebels and Crimson Tide have both done a good job of covering spreads, and that is about the only thing consistent about these teams. Away from home the Crimson Tide have had success running up the score, and this should be an up and down affair. Look for over to cash with ease.
