Analysis: Mississippi has a true road record of 5-2 on the year. And they are 7-2 against the SEC conference. On the road against conference opponents the Rebels have wins at Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Auburn with a 14 point loss at Florida. They break a two game losing streak with the 93-75 home win on Wednesday to the Mississippi St Bulldogs as a -17 point betting favorite. Mississippi tries for a season sweep of Missouri when they visit the No. 20 Tigers today. Mississippi led the entire game when it beat then-No. 12 Missouri 64-49 on Jan. 12 in Oxford in the teams' first-ever meeting. The Rebels are 7-2 in the SEC for the first time since the 1937-38 season and are off to their best start after 22 games since 2000-01. Junior guard Marshall Henderson leads the conference in scoring (20) and ranks third in the country in 3-pointers made per game (4). Senior forward Murphy Holloway is Mississippi’s all-time rebounding leader (964) and leads the SEC in rebounds per game (10). Rebels coach Andy Kennedy has 143 career victories, one behind B.L. Graham for the school record. Kennedy is 143-82 in seven seasons, while Graham posted a 144-168 mark over 13 seasons. Mississippi sophomore PG Jarvis Summers has averaged 11.6 points in seven SEC games this season after averaging 7.1 in non-conference play.
Missouri on their home court is a perfect 13-0. The Tigers inside of conference is 5-4. At home against the SEC the Tigers have wins against Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Auburn. They come off the 70-68 road defeat on Thursday to the Texas A&M Aggies as a -4 point betting favorite. In the first meeting Missouri played without leading scorer Laurence Bowers, who was sidelined with a sprained MCL in his right knee. He is back now for the Tigers. When Missouri lost to Mississippi, the Tigers were held to a season-low 22 points in the first half and limited to their fewest total points (49) since 2003. Having Bowers back in the lineup should help. Against Texas A&M, the senior forward’s 3-pointer with 53 seconds to play gave the Tigers a 68-67 lead, their first of the game, but the Aggies’ Fabyon Harris made a 3-pointer with 12 seconds left to keep Missouri winless (0-5) on the road. Over the last seven weeks of home games, senior forward Alex Oriakhi is shooting 38-for-50 from the floor and averaging 13.6 points and 9.4 rebounds with four double-doubles.
Free Pick: Im gonna look to the over in this one. Both teams play at an uptempo pace and neither defense has been able to stop people of late. Missouri averages 80.2 ppg at home, while Ole Miss averages 74.9 ppg on the road. This game could top 160 points.
