No. 22 Ole Miss has been steamrolling the competition leading up to its SEC showdown with No. 5 Tennessee. The Rebels are 13-0 straight up but a middling 7-6 against the spread according to the college basketball odds. However, in the game in which Ole Miss was installed as an underdog, it defeated UCF, 70-68 as 3½-point dogs.

Tennessee is also rolling, sprinting to a 9-3 mark but a disappointing 4-7-1 ATS record regarding college basketball picks tonight. All three of thei Vols’ losses – to Purdue (71-67), Kansas (69-60), and UNC (100-92) –were coincidentally the only three games in which they were underdogs this season.

The Vols trucked lightly regarded Norfolk State 87-50, in a Tuesday night game.

Kentucky enters as the sixth-ranked team in the nation after decimating Illinois State, 96-70, and covering as 20-point home favorites according to the major online sports betting sites like BetUS. Speaking of covering the number, the Wildcats have also done a nice job at the betting windows this season as evidenced by their 8-4 ATS mark.

Florida has also acquitted itself nicely with a 10-3 mark but a less than stellar 5-7-1 ATS record. In their last outing, the Gators wasted little time dispatching MAAC entry, Quinnipiac, in a 97-72 thrashing, covering as 21½-point home chalk.

Auburn is 11-2 after rolling over Penn by 20 on Tuesday night and continues to move up the rankings. As of this writing, the Tigers are No. 25 in the nation and have covered 4 of their last 5 games. The Tigers demolished Chattanooga, 101-66, easily covering as 21-point home favorites before throttling the Quakers.

If you have been blindly backing Arkansas in your NCAAB picks then your wallet is much thinner than it was at the beginning of the season as the Razorbacks have covered in 4 of their 13 contests. However, the Razorbacks did cover in their most recent outing, a solid 106-90 victory as 11-point home chalk against UNC Wilmington.
