Ole Miss vs Texas A&m : The Texas A&M Aggies have dropped back-to-back games as their offense continues to struggle. Will they right the ship on Saturday afternoon when they host the Ole Miss Rebels at 12:00 p.m. ET? Ole Miss has struggled defensively all season.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Aggies are 11.5-point favorites to beat the Rebels. The total, meanwhile, sits at 67 points. As of this writing, 51% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Aggies.
Ole Miss senior QB Jordan Ta’amu (ankle) is expected to be ready for the Rebels’ Nov. 10 game against Texas A&M. While the senior quarterback is expected to be ready for the game, he will be limited in practice this week. In his most recent action, a 48-44 loss to South Carolina, Ta’amu accounted for 445 yards of offense and one rushing touchdown. His three-game streak of at least one touchdown pass came to an end in the defeat, and Ta’amu will look to begin a new run against a Texas A&M defense that’s currently ranked 11th in the SEC in pass defense (243.6 ypg) and 13th in passing touchdowns allowed per game (2.0).
Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 15-of-31 passes for 212 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a 28-24 loss to Auburn on Saturday. Back-to-back poor games for Mond in back-to-back losses for the Aggies. As per usual, there were some excellent moments for the talented sophomore, but in the past two games, he’s really struggled to keep up any consistency. His interception got Auburn back into the game, and there were several throws that he just flatout missed. Mond has to play better if Texas A&M is going to compete against the better SEC teams. An easier defense comes next when they take on Ole Miss next Saturday.
The over is 10-2-1 in the Rebels’ last 13 games coming off a loss.
The under is 4-1 in the Aggies’ last five games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game.
The Aggies have struggled offensively over the past few weeks but they should let out their frustrations against a Rebels team that does not play defense. The over is 6-1 in Ole Miss’ last seven road games, is 11-4 in its last 15 conference games and is 19-7-1 in the Rebels’ last 27 games overall. The over is also 5-1 in the Aggies’ last six games played in the month of November and 7-1 in their last eight games coming off an ATS loss.
