Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Ole Miss Rebels Football Pick
This seems like a huge total taking into account that the Rebels have scored fewer than 10 points in two of the last three meetings. On the other hand, Ole Miss last year contributed to a total that hit 90 points. Defense hasn’t been Ole Miss’ forté this season. The Rebels’ run defense has been conspicuous by its absence through two weeks.
Their two games have averaged 84.5 points per game. Alabama could hit 50 points here, though the defense has also left quite a bit to be desired this season. Let’s side with the O in a game that could reach 85-90 points.
The two teams should be able to find the end zone often. The Rebels should do enough damage when they have the ball to put this game over the total.
