|Ole Miss||+7 ( -110 )||55 ( -110 )||+230|

The Alabama Crimson Tide has gone 7-0 SU in their past seven games versus the Ole Miss Rebels but only 1-3 ATS in their past four meetings. The Crimson Tide will be trying to earn a victory and a cover against the Rebels at home in Tuscaloosa this Saturday afternoon.
According to the best online sportsbooks, Alabama has gone 21-1 SU and 15-6-1 ATS in their last 22 games at home, although that lone home loss was this season in Week 2 versus the Texas Longhorns.
The Rebels have gone just 4-11-1 ATS in their past 16 games versus SEC West foes. The OVER has gone 5-3 in the past eight contests between Ole Miss and Alabama.
Betting Ole Miss Rebels
Ole Miss had a 10-0 advantage in the first quarter and would beat the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 48-23 as 17-point home chalk. Jaxson Dart passed 10-for-18 with 251 yards through the air and a TD. He ran for 136 yards and two scores on 14 carries.
The Rebels have gone 12-6 ATS in their past 18 games versus Alabama. Wideout Tre Harris has been listed as questionable for this game after he missed the game versus Georgia Tech with an injured knee.
Harris caught eight passes for 188 yards and five scores before he left Ole Miss’s 37-20 road victory over the Tulane Green Wave in the first quarter because of the injury.
The Rebels have appeared to be in excellent offensive shape right from the start this year. They have scored no fewer than 37 points in their first three games of the season. They have averaged 52.7 points per game in that period.
How the offense is going to fare against Alabama’s defense could be the key factor in this game. Last season, Jaxson Dart threw 21-for-36 for 240 passing yards with a TD and no picks but he rushed for just 35 yards on 16 carries in Ole Miss’s 30-24 home loss to the Crimson Tide.
Texas’s Quinn Ewers just torched this Alabama defense in Tuscaloosa on September 9, so the pressure is going to be on Dart to do likewise.
Mississippi has gone 14-6 SU in their past 20 games. Ole Miss has gone 12-6 ATS in their past 18 games when they have been playing against Alabama. Mississippi has gone 0-7 SU in their last seven games when they have been playing against Alabama. Ole Miss has gone 5-2 SU in their last seven games when they have been playing on the road. Mississippi is 1-13 SU in their past 14 games when playing on the road versus Alabama.
Betting Alabama Crimson Tide
What should have been an easy win for the Crimson Tide as 34.5-point road faves at betting sites versus the South Florida Bulls turned out to be a bowling shoe-ugly 17-3 win in a game that went to the halftime tied at 3-3.
Jalen Milroe was pulled out against South Florida after he completed only 51.9 percent of his passes and tossed two picks in Alabama’s 34-24 home loss to Texas. Quarterbacks Ty Simpson and Tyler Bucner were just as bad, though.
They combined to go 10-for-23 for 107 passing yards through the air with no TD passes. It was clear that the backups needed a backup, so Nick Saban named Milroe the starter once again for Saturday’s game versus Ole Miss. Alabama has gone just 2-5-1 ATS in its past eight games.
Saban’s teams have traditionally rebounded from losses with authoritative efforts, but last Saturday’s 17-3 win versus South Florida was anything but a statement. On the plus side, Alabama’s ground game and defense didn’t look too bad against the Bulls.
Building on that momentum is going to be of the utmost importance in getting a win versus Ole Miss. Jalen Milroe is going to be the most crucial element to the equation, however. Milroe had some big plays versus Texas that were eclipsed by his two costly picks.
Going up against a Rebels offensive attack that looks ready to pounce on mistakes, Milroe is going to have to keep errors to a minimum for Alabama to win and cover the point spread in this game.
