No. 13 LSU (-2.5) @ No. 20 Ole Miss – O/U 67
Evan Ertel: I’m with Ryan on this one, I think this is a big, stinky, rat line. But I love cheese and I did not see the intimidating, fast-paced offense that Ole Miss hoped to have against Alabama. They aren’t able to put up points as easily as they would like and I think it’s frustrating their whole operation. LSU -2.5
Ryan Strickland: This line seems very ratty. Maybe the oddsmakers are trying to tell us something but I just do not see this game being this close. LSU will have success against OM’s offensive line and defensive line. They will win the battle in the trenches and win by more than 3. LSU -2.5
Justin Strawn: I don’t know if Ole Miss broke Quinshon Judkins or what last year, but the guy who was one of the best players in the country a season ago is now just a guy. Until Judkins starts to look like he did last season, I’m not picking Ole Miss again against decent competition. LSU -2.5
Ethan Lee: Ole Miss should have a big crowd on hand to celebrate the time they didn’t win the SEC West, which is a choice given how they didn’t win the SEC West that season. If LSU shows up and doesn’t sleepwalk, they should be able to win without much of a challenge. But I’m not convinced of that right now. I think LSU wins, but I’m not sold on them covering this rather slim spread right now. Ole Miss +2.5
Andrew Miller: LSU’s defense is poor, but OM’s OL stinks. LSU’s defensive front will feast. And the OM defense isn’t stopping Daniels and Nabers. LSU -2.5
John King: Never underestimate the power of a team that thinks a game is a rivalry when the other team views it as “just another conference game”. Ole Miss gets this game at home and is favored outright by some game predictor analytics. I’ll take Ole Miss +2.5.
