Ole Miss is trying to avoid betting history on Thursday night.

If the Rebels can’t cover the spread against Mississippi State, they will join four other teams who have gone winless (with no pushes) against the spread in conference play since 2005 per our Bet Labs data. They would third to do it in a Power 5 conference and the first in the SEC.

Mississippi’s -10.5 ATS differential is the second-worst among the four other teams, only ahead of Hawaii last season in the Mountain West:

  • 2017 Hawaii: 0-8 ATS (-11.3 PPG)
  • 2010 Michigan: 0-8 ATS (-9.6 PPG)
  • 2008 Washington: 0-9 ATS (-10.3 PPG)
  • 2005 New Mexico St: 0-8 ATS (-8.4 PPG)

Even with so many rivalries in college football, you would have a hard time finding two fanbases with more bad blood. Mississippi State might not know, but it would enjoy keeping Ole Miss winless ATS in SEC play.
