Betting Odds: Auburn Tigers at Ole Miss Rebels
- Spread: Auburn -3.5
- Over/Under: 150
- Time: 7 p.m. ET
- TV: ESPN2
The Tigers (6-5-1 against the spread) enter this one after a nine-day layoff, failing to cover in five of their past six games. On the flip side, the Rebels (12-1 ATS) have covered in each of their past eight contests.
Both SEC programs are about even in size, as well as generating their fair share of second-chance opportunities. However, Auburn has an advantage via its rim protection, manufacturing the highest block rate (21.1%) in college basketball. Guided by the 6-foot-11 Austin Wiley, the Tigers are also allowing the 25th-fewest two-pointers.
