To begin with Ole Miss was a pleasant surprise on the college football board despite their NCAA probation. However, the Rebels are now in betting on college football free fall. An already thin defense has been rendered helpless and has laid waste to a prolific Mississippi offense. Contrarily Mississippi State has recovered nicely from a midseason slump. Owing to a rock-ribbed defense have the Bulldogs attained success. Despite their recent profits this season still rates as a letdown for MSU. First year head coach Joe Moorhead has gotten his “Welcome to the SEC” hazing for 2018.

Mississippi State vs. Ole Miss TV Coverage: ESPN
Mississippi State Bulldogs
Mississippi State is 7-4 both straight up and vs. the odds with eight of their games staying under the number. Last week the Bulldogs throttled Arkansas 52-6 as 24-point chalks. It was the third cover in four games for Hail State. Overall MSU ranks second nationally for points allowed but 69th for scoring offense. While this has not been a bad season for Moorhead it was also not what fans expected. To be exact consecutive losses to Kentucky and Florida did not sit well with the faithful.
Ole Miss Rebels
Ole Miss is 5-6 straight up, 3-8 vs. the board, and 6-5 over the total. Extending their misery vs. the line is five consecutive failures to pay out. Last Saturday was the Rebels worst loss yet. Indeed, Vanderbilt scored a 36-29 home payout in overtime. Ole Miss outgained Vandy 578-387 but Jordan Ta’amu threw two critical interceptions. Additionally, the Rebels 123rd in the country ranked defense failed when it mattered most.
Stats to Consider
Mississippi State has been a weak betting on college football value in road games. More emphatically the Bulldogs have paid out in just two of their last eight away from home.

In their last 16 matchups at Vaught Hemingway Stadium the Rebels have covered just four times. And three of their last five at home have gone under the total.
Team vs. Team
In this head to head offshore betting series Ole Miss has had the recent advantage. To be exact the Rebels have got the cash in four of their last six against the Bulldogs.

Further, six of the last eight in this series at Oxford have stayed under the number.
Matchup to Watch
