The Ole Miss Rebels (7-0. 3-0 SEC) are on the road this week at LSU (5-2. 3-1) in an SEC West battle in Baton Rouge. The Tigers are in a tough spot as they try to avoid a devastating third loss. Meanwhile, Ole Miss has its sights set on a CFP berth and boasts the offense to get it here. Can LSU upset the undefeated Rebels, or will Ole Miss remain perfect?
Let’s check the latest college football odds, stats, injury reports and college football lines for Ole Miss vs LSU. We’ve plenty of NCAA football odds for you to consider.
The Rebels are coming off a solid 43-34 victory over Auburn in Week 7, thanks mainly to a highly productive day on the ground. Ole Miss amassed 448 yards rushing with RBs Quinshon Judkins and Zach Evans, along with QB Jaxon Dart, all going over 115 yards. Dart added 130 yards passing and three touchdowns. Judkins scored twice and Evans once in a monster day for Ole Miss.
Ole Miss enters play as one of the most balanced teams in the nation. The Rebels rank 18th both in scoring offense (37.8 points per game) and scoring defense (19.7 ppg). They average over 275 yards rushing per game and pass only 34.45 percent of plays. This could be a problem for an LSU team that ranks 48th in opponent rushing yards per game (137).
The Tigers might be the best two-loss team in the nation. Look no further than the minuscule 1.5-point spread against the No. 7 ranked team in the country for proof. But can they live up to expectations against a legit Top 10 team?
LSU dominated Florida’s defense to the tune of 528 yards en route to a 45-35 victory in Week 7. But the Tigers have not been such a high-scoring offense for most of the season and rank 60th in points per game and 77th in points per play.
The game against Florida was impressive, but we’re not sure it is a pace LSU can maintain against Ole Miss. The Rebels allow less than 20 points per game and create a lot of quarterback pressure with a 19th-ranked sack rate of 8.06%. On the other hand, Florida ranks 77th in points per game and 102nd in yards per game. We feel it’s incorrect to expect a similar output from this offense in Week 8.

Ole Miss vs LSU Prediction
We are a bit confused by this line but happy to grab the value it provides. The bookmakers are giving us the No. 7 team in the country with a 1.5-point spread against a 5-2 team that already lost to an unranked team. There is a chance that Ole Miss completely overwhelms LSU and covers this slim spread with ease.
