Saturday’s matinee SEC matchup pits hard-luck conference rivals at Stegman Coliseum when the Georgia Bulldogs host the Ole Miss Rebels.
After an exceptional start, and subsequent top-25 ranking, Ole Miss is just 2-5 since since Jan. 15. During that span, the once 13-3 Rebels have backslid vs. middling-to-subpar competition –including Florida and Alabama. Most recently, however, Ole Miss eked by a Texas A&M team sporting a 1-8 conference record.
Meanwhile, Tom Crean’s Bulldogs are also 1-8 in conference play, having lost seven-of-eight overall. Georgia’s last win came Jan. 26 vs. Texas. Wednesday saw a third-straight UGA loss, 89-74 vs. Alabama.
Ole Miss Rebels
Following signature wins vs. then top-15 ranked SEC foes Auburn and Mississippi State, Ole Miss has become a division also-ran desperate to regain momentum. While defeating the Aggies 75-71 Wednesday night is technically a step toward finding that momentum, quality teams don’t struggle against 8-13 opponents.
Further, going life-or-death vs. the visiting Aggies means slumping-host UGA could pose difficulties for Matt Luke’s men.
Things will become far more difficult if Ole Miss’ reserves are outscored 40-16 again. Simply, the Rebels’ bench was blitzed by a surprising A&M backup display in Wednesday’s close encounter.
While the Rebels are more talented than UGA, a focused and holistic performance will be needed for Ole Miss to claim another winning streak.
Bulldog nation understands Tom Crean’s rebuilding pains will last at least through this season. And while Georgia offers glimpses of talent, most notably in versatile 6’11 Nicolas Claxton, on-court consistency has been elusive of late in Athens.
Having lost seven-of-eight, even vs. limping Ole Miss Saturday, the Bulldogs will be hard-pressed to free itself from the mire its early conference schedule wrought.
Georgia’s spiral deepened Wednesday as Alabama ran past UGA in the second half to secure an 89-74 victory.
For UGA to upend the Rebels, resolute defense and rare outside shooting success will be key. Overall, Georgia surrenders 75.2 PPG –265th among all NCAA teams– while making just 33% of its three-point attempts.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Georgia is 1-7 SU in their last 8 games overall.
- Ole Miss is 2-5 SU in their last 7 games overall.
- Georgia is 8-4 SU at home this season.
- Ole Miss is 3-3 SU in road games this season.
Free Ole Miss Rebels vs. Georgia Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction:
Georgia is a team in full-fledged rebuild mode. Conversely, Ole Miss has found upper-level success this season. The Rebels shouldn’t struggle vs. Georgia, given the Dogs’ recent setbacks. However, and this is key, Ole Miss shouldn’t have struggled Wednesday against the Aggies.
In the wake of such a poor recent Rebels performance, Georgia must be given “live-dog” status coming in. Yet, ultimately, Ole Miss’ experience and talent will prevail.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Ole Miss -2.5
Look for Georgia to come out strong, hoping to capitalize on Ole Miss’ accrued bad habits. Though, again, the Rebels will eventually create separation and win by a fairly comfortable margin.
