ATS PICK: Ole Miss
– Bet on this, BetMGM latest line
Everyone gets to party against the Ole Miss defense.
It’s getting ripped up for way over 500 yards per game, it has yet to allow fewer than 33 points, and it’s seemingly incapable of generating a meaningful stop so far in a bad 1-4 start.
But there are two ways to look at this.
Either the Ole Miss defense finally gets a break from its misery against the Vanderbilt offense, of the Vanderbilt offense finally gets to go off.
Take the former.
The Commodores have had a rough run over the last few weeks both on the field and with COVID problems – they haven’t played since October 10th. In the first three games of the season, though, the offense scored a grand total of 26 points.
The Ole Miss offense eats 26 points for breakfast when it’s working right.
The last two games against LSU and South Carolina were 41-7 losses for Vandy, and Ole Miss at least has the O to do the same.
To take this even further, against FBS programs, Vanderbilt hasn’t scored more than 14 points in any of its last seven games or in nine of its last ten.
Over the last 14 games going back to the start of 2019, Vanderbilt has scored a grand total of 186 points against FBS teams. Ole Miss has scored 174 points in the first five games of this season.
Oh, but forget about Rutgers, and Maryland, and Vanderbilt. It’s time to finish hammering on struggling programs in a big way for the grand finale …
