Ole Miss 3 point underdogs against Auburn


Ole Miss has had a phenomenal season. They sit at 6-1 with their only loss so far this season coming against Alabama. If the Rebels can just win out the rest of the season, a real possibility, then they're going to have a shot to play in an SEC Title game for the first time in school history.

Before they can think about a potential SEC title game, and a playoff appearance, they need to get a road win against a tough Auburn team.

Odds

Oddsmakers aren't backing Ole Miss in this one. The Rebels are 3 point underdogs, and they're given +135 odds to win the game outright. That's an implied 42.6% chance to win the game. Meanwhile, Auburn is given -139 odds, or an implied 58.2% chance to pull off the upset.

Matchup History

Auburn and Ole Miss have played 44 times in their history. Ole Miss has won just 10 of those games. Once upon a time, Ole Miss dominated this rivalry. Ole Miss won 4 of the first 5 and 5 of the first 7 games these teams played.

Since 1970, Auburn is 32-6 against Ole Miss. The last time the Rebels beat Auburn was in 2015, a 27-19 victory at Auburn.

Still, Auburn clearly has the historical edge here.

Conclusion

Ole Miss has a chance to be one of the biggest surprises in the college football playoff history. However, they need to go unbeaten the rest of the way to make that happen. Even then, that may not be enough.

So, they can't afford to stumble against Auburn. This game, and everyone after it is a must-win.
