Alabama vs Ole Miss Betting Prediction

These two teams come into this game with the same overall record, but they are trending in two totally different directions. Alabama has won three of their last four games and they are tied for first in the standings, while Ole Miss has lost five of their last six games and they are trying to stay on the NCAA Tournament bubble. The Rebels have been very disappointing in conference play this season, but they do play their best basketball at home. Alabama is one of the highest scoring teams in the country and they have scored at least 95 points in four straight games, but their defense leaves a lot to be desired. I think we will definitely see a higher scoring game here, but I think Ole Miss is going to have one of their better performances of the season. The Rebels have their backs against the wall and I like them with the points at home.
