How to watch, betting odds as LSU men’s basketball hosts No. 22 Ole Miss on Wednesday night

A disappointing double-digit loss on the road to Auburn on Saturday interrupted what was a 2-0 start to SEC play for the LSU men’s basketball team, but it will be back in action for another chance to earn another impressive conference win on Wednesday night.

No. 22 Ole Miss comes to the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, and the Rebels are off to a hot start under first-year coach Chris Beard. They’re 15-1 on the year with the only loss coming on the road against a very strong Tennessee team.

LSU is 10-6 on the year and looking to move to 3-1 to start SEC play against the Rebels on Wednesday night. Here’s everything you need to know to watch, including the latest odds from BetMGM.

Prediction and best bet

The Tigers are playing like a much better team since Jalen Cook got back in the fold, and even in the loss to Auburn, it showed a lot of fight with a 21-2 run to get back in the game. Ole Miss’ record may be a bit deceiving given a resume that has only featured one Quad 1 game, which the Rebels lost, but they’ve still been the more consistent team, and I’ll take them on the road.

Prediction: Ole Miss 70, LSU 65

Best Bet: Ole Miss (+3.5), Under (150.5)
