LSU vs Ole Miss Betting Odds - Wild Rebels to cover in Magnolia Bowl

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/16/2009 3:00:12 PM
football betting tipsThe LSU vs Ole Miss betting odds sets up an interesting SEC matchup of two teams who are aiming for January 1st bowls. The two teams have had similar seasons, as both have struggled against elite teams in the SEC - namely Florida and Alabama - but have toppled pretty much everyone else. The Tigers are on a bit of a slide right now, and with so many injuries, online betting cappers should look for the Rebels to take advantage.

LSU vs Ole Miss betting odds: Ole Miss -4
WHAT: NCAA Football betting
WHEN: Saturday, November 21st – 3:30 PM ET
WHERE: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium – Oxford, MI
PICK: Ole Miss -4

LSU vs Ole Miss betting odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
The Tigers’ (8-2, 4-2) only two losses this year have come at the hands of Alabama and Florida, which is nothing to be ashamed of. They are still a top 10 team in the BCS and could be in line for a BCS bowl if they can win out. They’ve had some close calls on the road this year though, so this may be too much for them to handle.

Ole Miss (7-3, 3-3) might feel a little slighted that they’re not ranked in the Top 25. They’ve had a couple of tough losses in Auburn and South Carolina but have been impressive of late. The Rebels have committed to Dexter McCluster wholeheartedly in the last two games and have scored a total of 80 points. They could improve their bowl destination greatly with a win this week.

LSU vs Ole Miss betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Tigers offense has taken some big hits in the last couple of weeks. Starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson has an ankle sprain and missed last week’s contest against Louisiana Tech. Beyond that, starting running back Charles Scott is out for the year with a broken clavicle. LSU still has the depth to replace these guys with Jarrett Lee and Keiland Williams. But Lee has a propensity to make mistakes, and if that happens in Oxford, the Tigers won’t be in this game.

For Ole Miss, sportsbook odds makers know the equation is simple: get the ball in the hands of Dexter McCluster. The versatile senior rushed for 282 yards last week against Tennessee and collected 324 all-purpose yards. When the ball gets in his hands and the offense gets going, the Rebels are a load to handle. With McCluster as the main man, quarterback Jevan Sneed has been far more relaxed and has made far better decisions in the pocket.

LSU vs Ole Miss betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
On defense, the Tigers have been playing fairly well, but their unit is unbalanced. Their front four is not the typical LSU standard, which has allowed opposing quarterbacks plenty of time to throw. The Tigers gave up 178 yards rushing to Louisiana Tech last week, which is an ominous sign considering what’s in front of them in Oxford this week.

Meanwhile, the Ole Miss defense has been steady this year. They held the Volunteers under 300 yards of offense last week, which was the fifth time this year that they did it. The key will be the defensive line for Ole Miss, which will be in tough against the LSU offensive line. If they can pressure Lee, they’ll force mistakes and get better field position. If not, the LSU wide receivers should be able to make some plays.

LSU vs Ole Miss betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
The Tigers will be without starting tailback Charles Scott for this game and possibly without starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson (ankle). Also, tight end Richard Dickson (knee) was sidelined against Louisiana Tech and will be questionable for this week, while center T-Bob Hebert will also be on the injured list.

Betting Edge: Ole Miss

LSU vs Ole Miss betting odds breakdown: Outlook and Pick
When healthy, the Tigers are probably the better team, but they simply aren’t healthy here. College football betting fans know that LSU got beat up by Alabama a couple of weeks ago and they have yet to recover. Ole Miss has flopped in big games this year, but this is manageable. Look for them to get back into the Top 25 with a big win over LSU this weekend.

TONY’S PICK: Ole Miss -4
