College Football Betting – Ole Miss is #3, But Getting Points From Texas A&M

The Ole Miss Rebels are coming off one of the biggest wins in their program’s history, and they are headed by only two teams in one of the major polls. On Saturday night they will do battle with the Texas A&M Aggies in college football betting action that is set to begin at 9 PM ET at Kyle Field in College Station, TX.

Last week Ole Miss put its defense on display against Alabama, which came into the game as the #1 team in the nation as far as the coaches poll was concerned. They had also lost ten consecutive games to the Crimson Tide, but they came away with a 23-17 victory, and did so despite generating only 72 net rushing yards. They are now 5-0 on the season, the first time they have won their first five games since 1962.
College Football Betting -- Ole Miss is #3, But Getting Points From Texas A&M

Texas A&M was thought to be in a transitional year after Johnny Manziel took off for the NFL. But Kenny Hill came in and started putting up big numbers at quarterback, enough to garner some Heisman Trophy consideration. Hill threw three interceptions last week against Mississippi State, as the Aggies fell 38-21. So clearly he is looking for little vindication here.

In the NCAA football betting odds that have been posted on this game by the people at BetAnySports, Texas A&M is laying points on the road:

Texas A&M Aggies -2.5 (-115)
Ole Miss Rebels +2.5 (-105)

Over 65.5 Points -110
Under 65.5 Points -110

Ole Miss is now tied for the #3 spot in the Associated Press poll with Mississippi State, and they are sixth in the coaches poll. Texas A&M is ranked #14 in both major polls. In last season’s game Manziel brought the team back from being a touchdown behind late in the fourth quarter, and A&M got a field goal with time expiring to come away with a 41-38 victory.

BetAnySports NCAAF Sportsbooks patrons who have been following Mississippi’s season know that this is one of the best defenses in all of college football. They have allowed only 10.2 points per game, and Alabama, a team with two of the best running backs in the nation, was held under 4 yards per rushing attempt.

Needless to say, this is going to be a challenge for Kevin Sumlin and his offensive game plan. But the Aggies will also be challenged on the defensive side as well, because Ole Miss likes to think it has a Heisman darkhorse candidate in quarterback Bo Wallace, who threw for 251 yards and three touchdowns last week, bringing his total to 14 TDs for the season. He has also completed 68.5% of his passes.

Mississippi is trying to end a six-game losing streak to the Aggies, but judging from last week’s performance against Alabama, they are undaunted.
