Rebels Take Road Woes into Clash with Top-Ranked Alabama

The Ole Miss Rebels will try to halt a five-game slide at the sportsbooks when they visit the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday night in an SEC matchup at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Mississippi is also winless in two on the road following last week’s 27-16 loss to California as 7-point chalk, while Alabama returns home following a 59-0 demolition of Vanderbilt as a 19.5-point favorite.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Alabama’s last nine games at home.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of Mississippi’s last nine games on the road.
  • Mississippi is 10-3 SU in its last 13 games after a loss.

The Rebels opened the season with a pair of lopsided victories over South Alabama and Tennessee-Martin and are a respectable 4-3 SU over their past seven. However, Ole Miss has covered just once in its past nine overall, and is currently on a dismal 1-5 SU and ATS run against SEC conference rivals.

Conversely, the Tide kept rolling in last week’s crushing win over the Commodores, which extended their current SU win streak in regular-season action to 23 games. Alabama is also a spectacular 29-1 SU in its past 30 home dates but has failed to cover in four straight at home, and is just 4-6 ATS in its last 10 home dates against SEC opponents.

Alabama eked out a 48-43 win over Ole Miss as 10-point road chalk last September to end a two-game SU slide against the Rebels, and is a dismal 3-13 ATS in its past 16 dates with the Rebels.
