Against the Spread Pick
The LSU Tigers will be trying to extend their winning streak to 10 games on Saturday. LSU tops the SEC with a perfect 7-0 conference record and a 16-4 mark overall. The Tigers’ current surge includes a victory over none other than the Ole Miss Rebels, who now pay a visit to the Bayou after falling 80-76 at home on Jan. 18. Emmitt Williams and Trendon Watford, the team’s second and third-leading scorers, have really been leading the way of late for a school that looks like it could win both national titles in the two major sports this year. Ole Miss is a horrendous 1-7 in its past eight outings, giving it a 1-6 record in the SEC. The TIGERS will likely win this going away.
Over Under Pick
The Rebels have scored 55 points or fewer in four of their eight contests during this wretched stretch of play. To say the struggle to put the ball in the hoop would be a gross understatement. Only one player (Breein Tyree) is averaging more than 11.2 points per game. Ole Miss will undoubtedly struggle offensively against a long and athletic opponent in LSU. Expect this one to stay UNDER the total.
