Our college football betting expert has started the season 15-4 right. Read his college football wagering article detailing the specifics in the huge Alabama/Mississippi game on Saturday which includes a free college football pick.

SEC Battle of the Unbeatens
The Ole Miss Rebels will host the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississippi. The opening kickoff is slated for 3:30 PM ET, and the game will be televised nationally by CBS. According to college football odds, Alabama is a 6.0 point road favorite, and at the time of this writing there was no posted total. The last time the Rebels were able to defeat Alabama was way back in 2003 when they won 43-28 in a game played in Oxford. Since then, the Crimson Tide has defeated Ole Miss 10 consecutive times, and that included a 25-0 win in Tuscaloosa last season.

 

Hugh Freeze Turning Ole Miss Around
Since taking over as head coach at Ole Miss for the start of the 2012 season, Hugh Freeze has guided the Rebels to a 19-11 record, and made the football program relevant again. In the 2-seasons prior to the arrival of Freeze, the Rebels went a combined 6-18, and included a pathetic 1-15 in the SEC. Mississippi has won 6 of their last 7, and 8 of their last 10 home games, and that certainly creates betting value on the underdog. As a matter of fact, Ole Miss has gone a stellar 4-1 ATS as a home underdog with Freeze at the helm. The last time the Rebels started the season 4-0 came in 1984, and then proceeded to lose at Georgia in their following game. Needless to say, Ole Miss is sailing in unchartered waters with this 4-0 start.

 

An Absolute Juggernaut
The Alabama Crimson Tide has gone 17-1 in their last 18, 28-2 in the last 30, and 71-7 in the last 78 regular season games. During that same time span, Alabama has gone 23-3 on the road. On a somewhat negative note, they’ve gone a poor 0-7 ATS in their last 7-games as a road favorite of 5.5 to 10.0, and they lost 3 of the 7 outright. Alabama went just 7-6 in 2007, and that was the first year under head coach Nick Saban. Since then, Alabama has gone 76-9 in their last 85-games under Saban, and that includes 3 national championships.

 

Super College Football Betting System
When making your college football picks be mindful of any home team that’s coming off 2 straight wins, and each came by 17-points or more, versus an opponent that scored 42-points in each of their last 2-games, has gone 35-11 ATS (76.1%) since 1992.
