Auburn has 59% chance to beat Ole Miss on Tuesday

The No. 22 Auburn Tigers made a statement last Saturday in its 13-point win over then-No. 13 Arkansas at Neville Arena.

Wendell Green Jr. had a great bounce-back game by leading the team in points with 19, and Johni Broome recorded his third-straight double-double by scoring 10 and securing 10 rebounds. The Arkansas win came after a disappointing 76-64 loss to Georgia in Athens last Wednesday, where Auburn shot just 34% from the field.

Auburn now turns its focus to Ole Miss. A win over the Rebels would give the Tigers its first against an SEC foe. Does it happen? Data from ESPN suggests that it will.

According to ESPN’s matchup predictor, Auburn has a 59.3% chance to beat Ole Miss at The Pavillion on Tuesday night.

On the flip side, Ole Miss is vying to earn its first SEC win of the season. Last time out, Ole Miss shot 35.8% from the field in a 64-54 loss to Mississippi State at Humphrey Coliseum.

Auburn has been given a slight edge in the odds as well. The Tigers open as a -2.5 point favorite on Tuesday night according to BetMGM, with the over-under at 132.5.
