The Ole Miss Rebels (7-0, 4-0 SEC) put their perfect record on the line this weekend in an SEC showdown with the LSU Tigers (6-2, 2-2 SEC). Kickoff is at 7:15 p.m. Eastern on Saturday at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The Rebels’ strength is on defense. Ole Miss allows just 10.6 points per game, lowest in the nation; they are coming off a 34-3 over the Tennessee Volunteers last weekend, the third time this season the Rebels have limited their opponents to just a field goal.

LSU head coach Les Miles know the Tigers will have a hard time scoring points on the Rebels. “I think there are talented guys in their secondary that anticipate the ball and can make plays,” said Miles. “I just think the combination of scheme and players make a difference for them.”

The Tigers have won their last two, including a dominant 41-3 performance against a decent Kentucky Wildcats team. But conference losses to (1) Mississippi State and (5) Auburn mean LSU is out of the running for the SEC championship and the inaugural College Football Playoff. All they can do now is hope to play spoiler.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze is not taking the Tigers lightly, thought. He knows that LSU is capable of taking the spoiler roll and running with it, so to speak.

“The last two weeks, (LSU has) gotten back to doing their bread and butter — that’s physical (play), controlling the clock,” said Freeze. “They’re able to run the football with the outstanding backs that they have.”

Currently, Ole Miss are four points favorites and the over/under sits at 45. The Rebels are 3-9 SU in their last 12 against LSU, but they have been a great bet this season, posting a 7-0 ATS record.

Bet Ole Miss to win and cover the spread.
