Advice and Prediction

Auburn has been a different team away from Neville Area so far this season and it is always tough to win on the road in college basketball, let alone cover a spread. Thankfully for Auburn, they will be facing an Ole Miss team this is searching for its first SEC win of the season and struggles to score the ball.

The Rebels have a solid defense but it is not as elite as Auburn’s and if the Tigers can keep Ole Miss’ guard Matthew Murrell in check they should be able to pick up the win and cover the 2.5-point spread.
