Week 11 of the 2021 college football season brings another frenzy Saturday with plenty of interesting markets to choose from, so we’re taking a look at the Southeastern Conference battle at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississippi, to get you the best Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss betting pick and odds.
These two schools meet for the first time since 2019, and the Aggies aim for their fourth straight victory over the Rebels. Texas A&M is a 2.5-point road fave with a total of 55.5 points, while Ole Miss sits at +112 moneyline odds on BetDSI Sportsbook.
The Aggies are undefeated in four straight contests
The No. 11 Texas A&M Aggies (7-2; 6-3 ATS) are rolling on a four-game winning streak following a 20-3 thrashing of the No. 13 Auburn Tigers this past Saturday. They easily covered a 4.5-point spread at home, holding the Tigers to a paltry 226 total yards.
The Aggies racked up 409 all-purpose yards against Auburn’s stout defense. Junior RB Isaiah Spiller led the way with 21 carries for 112 yards, while sophomore QB Zach Calzada completed 15 of his 29 pass attempts for 192 yards.
Texas A&M is tallying 28.6 points per contest (tied-65th in the nation). The Aggies average 191.7 rushing yards per game (38th), while Calzada has tossed for 1.556 yards, 12 touchdowns, and seven interceptions so far this season. On the other side of the ball, Texas A&M yields only 14.7 points per game (2nd) on 123.7 rushing yards (29th) and 194.7 passing yards (25th).
The Rebels outlasted Liberty to get back on the right track
The No. 12 Ole Miss Rebels (7-2; 5-3-1 ATS) bounced back from a 31-20 defeat at Auburn in Week 9, outlasting the Liberty Flames 27-14 as 7.5-point home favorites this past Saturday. They barely outgained the Flames in total yards (466-457) but managed to force three turnovers and easily come out on top.
Junior RB Jerrion Ealy led the charge with 10 carries for 115 yards and a couple of touchdowns. Junior signal-caller Matt Corral threw for 324 yards and a TD, while junior WR Dannis Jackson had six receptions for 126 yards and a TD.
Corral has already thrown for 2,527 yards, 16 touchdowns, and a couple of picks so far this season. The Rebels are scoring 37.8 points per game (16th in the country) while averaging 237.9 rushing yards (5th). On the defensive side of things, they are giving up 27.0 points per contest (tied-71st) on 195.3 rushing yards (tied-108th) and 237.3 passing yards (80th).
- 6-3-1 ATS in the last ten games overall
Texas A&M vs. Ole Miss Pick
The Aggies are listed as small road favorites mostly because of their sturdy defense, but Jimbo Fisher’s boys will have a tall task to slow down the Rebels’ prolific offense. Ole Miss possesses plenty of dangerous weapons and will attack the Aggies both through the air and on the ground.
Hereof, I’m expecting a proper thriller down the stretch. The Rebels have improved defensively as of late, so I’m backing the host to cover a 3-point spread. This should be a back-and-forth contest, and I would be surprised if someone wins by more than three points.
Pick: Take Ole Miss +3.0 at -138
The Aggies have kept their rivals below 15 points in three straight outings, and over their previous four outings, the Aggies’ offense has averaged 35.0 points per contest. On the other side, only one of the Rebels’ last four games has produced more than 51 points in total, so the betting trends are suggesting the under.
Six of the Aggies’ last nine games went in the under. Also, the under is 5-1 in the Rebels’ previous six outings, and it is 6-0 in the last six encounters between Ole Miss and Texas A&M. The totals are a tricky wager in this one, as both teams should run efficiently and eat the clock, but they can also easily surpass a 55.5-point line with a couple of big plays.
Pick: Go under 55.5 points at -110
