Best College Football Bets Week 12: UL Monroe Covers Over Ole Miss

No. 13 Mississippi finds itself as a massive 37½-point favorite over UL Monroe in our Week 12 College Football lines. The over-under is set at 62 points.

For Ole Miss, this game is sandwiched between Alabama and the Egg Bowl rivalry against Mississippi State. There are obvious reasons for the Rebels to be distracted, but does UL Monroe have enough firepower to give the SEC squad a scare?

UL Monroe is just 2-8 this season and remains winless in the Sun Belt conference. The team’s best win came in Week 1 with a 17-13 victory over Army. UL Monroe’s other lone matchup against a Power Five program resulted in a 47-3 loss to Texas A&M.

Here are my college football picks for the UL Monroe-Ole Miss matchup.

Ole Miss Still Pretty Good

So, we found out Ole Miss is not on Georgia’s level, but this is still a high-level team as the Las Vegas odds for this matchup indicate. This is reflected by Ole Miss only falling a few spots to No. 13 in the College Football Playoff rankings after the blowout loss.

Ole Miss’ best wins came against LSU and Tulane this season. The Rebels high-powered offensive attack was unable to find success against the Bulldogs, scoring just 17 points. Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin was candid about the state of the program after the loss to Georgia.

“We have to recruit at a higher level,” Kiffin told reporters. “I’m not blaming (the players), we have to coach better. We have signed one five-star, (Georgia) signed 24.”

UL Monroe vs Ole Miss Pick: Warhawks Cover

The deciding factor for me in this game is the Ole Miss defense or lack thereof. There are too many warning sides for me to believe the Rebels are ready to cover a spread of more than five touchdowns.

Namely, Ole Miss gives up points, which means UL Monroe has a chance to score in this matchup. It won’t be enough to keep this one close, but we are concerned about the spread here.

Add in the fact that Ole Miss is coming off a physical defeat to Georgia. Did we mention the Egg Bowl is just five days after this game? Kiffin is likely to keep things pretty vanilla in this contest.

Bet online UL Monroe to cover the sizable spread.
