After wild slate of college basketball on Tuesday night, including Texas A&M covering against Kentucky with a meaningless half-court heave, there’s plenty more action to get excited about this evening.

Among the 10 ranked teams taking the court, No. 25 TCU travels to No. 7 Kansas after No. 11 Auburn faces Ole Miss in Oxford.

Where’s the value in these two contests? Let’s break them down.

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.
