Vegas Odds: Auburn vs. Mississippi NCAA College Football Picks & Predictions: After Alabama , Ohio State, and Oklahoma have each been toppled from their #1 rankings with conference losses on the road, #1 Auburn (8-0) must travel to Oxford, Mississippi to face unranked Ole Miss (3-4) during week nine of the NCAA college football picks season. Vegas odds makers have placed the Tigers as -7(-115) point college football picks favorites on the road.
Auburn rose to #1 after an impressive college football picks victory over then #6 LSU last week, 24-17. Once again, quarterback Cam Newton could not be contained, gaining 217 yards on the ground with two touchdowns, and throwing for another 86 yards. It was sophomore running back Onterio McCalebb’s 70-yard run, though, that was the game-winner for Auburn, showing the difficulty of defending the nation’s 4th ranked rushing attack.
Ole Miss comes into the college football picks match-up dragging around the nation’s 101st ranked scoring defense, allowing 32 points per game, and they have been handled easily the past two college football picks contests by ranked Alabama and Arkansas. However, Ole Miss does possess some weapons, though, that could give Auburn, especially on defense, some fits. Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli is a duel-threat weapon as a passer and a runner, generating over 1,600 combined yards with 13 touchdowns. Ole Miss has also relied on running back Brandon Bolden to complement Masoli and big-play receiver Markeith Summers.
While Auburn is not a one-man gang, Cam Newton is the focal point of this dangerous and exciting team. Mississippi should be able to make some plays against Auburn’s defense, ranked only 53rd in the country in scoring, but Auburn has too many weapons. Auburn has played a lot of close college football picks contests but they should cover the Vegas spread and win this college football picks5 contest going away.
