The Auburn Tigers have moved up to #1 in the latest BCS standings but to stay there they will have to win at Mississippi on Saturday and they are favored in college football betting lines to do just that.
The Tigers are 7-point favorites in college football odds at Sbg global.com.
This game can be seen on ESPN 2 so it will be another chance for Heisman Trophy favorite Cam Newton to strut his stuff. He was unbelievable last week in the win over LSU and he should have a field day against a bad Mississippi defense.
The spotlight will be on the quarterbacks in this game. Cam Newton is having a superb season and could go on to win the Heisman. The Rebels have Jeremiah Masoli and he is capable of causing the Auburn defense some trouble. He may want to show the country he should not be forgotten about with Newton getting all the attention.
Ole Miss has no defense and Auburn’s defense is nothing special. There should be a ton of points scored in this game. Mississippi lost last week 38-24 against Arkansas. Just how bad is the Mississippi defense? They are ranked 101st in the country in points allowed. They have given up more than 30 points a total of four times this season. Remember that game a couple of weeks ago between Auburn and Arkansas? This could be the same type of game with Auburn winning a shootout.
