Auburn vs. Ole Miss odds: Rebels open as 2-point favorites

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

The Tigers will be home underdogs this Saturday.

With Auburn coming off a bye week and Ole Miss recovering from a 25-0 embarrassment at Alabama, the Rebels opened as two-point favorites for Saturday night's matchup at Jordan-Hare Stadium, according to Odds Shark.

It was tough going for Ole Miss in Tuscaloosa. Quarterback Bo Wallace ran his mouth in the week leading up to the game, and the Crimson Tide defense made him pay. The Rebel offense was only able to muster 205 total yards, and Wallace finished the night 17-of-31 for 159 yards and one lost fumble. Ole Miss' defense played well in the first half, but it wore out late, allowing Alabama to rack up 434 yards and 21 first downs.

The Rebels and Tigers are averaging an identical 28.5 points per game in 2013, and Auburn holds the yards-per-game advantage, 439.5-418.8. The Tigers' rushing offense has been more successful (232.3-199.0), and Ole Miss has a slight edge in the passing game (219.8-207.3).

The Rebs' defense ranks much better in yards allowed per game, averaging 358.0 to Auburn's 439.5. The Tigers' are slightly better in terms of scoring defense, 22.0-24.0.
