The Tennessee Volunteers will visit the Ole Miss Rebels in this college basketball matchup scheduled for Wednesday night. 

The Volunteers are coming off of a 5 point loss to Alabama in their last time out.  Olivier Nkamhoua led the Volunteers with 15 points in the loss. Santiago Vescovi had 13 points as they lost the conference play opener. 

The Tennessee Volunteers are led in scoring by Santiago Vescovi who averages 13.3 points and 4.6 rebounds for this team. Kennedy Chandler averages 14 points and 3 rebounds a night. Olivier Nkamhoua is the third leading scorer for the Volunteers as he averages 9.3 points a game for this team.

The Volunteers are averaging 77.5 points per game on 44.3% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 60.4 points per game. They are shooting 70.6% from the free throw line. 

The Rebels are coming off of a 2 point lost to Samford in their last time out. Daeshun Ruffin scored 17 points, Jarkel Joiner had 15, Luis Rodriguez dropped 13 and Jaemyn Brakefield had 11 for the Rebels who saw a nine-game home winning streak end.

The Ole Miss Rebels are led in scoring by Jarkel Joiner who averages 14.8 points and 3.5 rebounds for this team. Nysier Brooks averages 8.9 points and 7.8 rebounds a game for this team. Jaemyn Brakefield  is the third leading scorer for the Rebels as he averages 8.8 points a game for this team.

The Rebels are averaging 70.4 points per game on 42.8% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 63.4 points per game. They are shooting 69.2% from the free throw line. 

Both of these teams are in bounce back situations but I’m going to have to go with Tennessee to win and Ole Miss to cover. This feels like too many points with an Ole Miss team that won’t roll over to the talented Volunteers team. The Rebels are 13-4 ATS in their last 17 Wednesday games. Although the Volunteers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games this feels like way too many points to back them. They definitely win, but not by this much.
