Auburn and Ole Miss will face off in the most important game to date in regards to the college football playoff, which will lead to a ton of straight bet and total wagers in the marketplace.

Offensive Juggernaut
Auburn has scored an offensive touchdown in 42 of its last 46 quarters versus Southeastern Conference opponents, which is important to consider when making your Week 10 collegte football picks, as the school is averaging 39.4 points in 21 games under Gus Malzahn.

Only four teams in the country have scored at least 20 points in every game since the beginning of the 2013 campaign, with the Tigers being joined by Florida State, Marshall and Ohio State.

Over the last two-plus seasons, the program is 4-10 SU and 8-6 ATS as underdogs, with no edge in the betting total (7-7 Over/Under).

 

Still Alive
Ole Miss dropped a hard-fought 10-7 decision to the LSU Tigers as four-point road favorites last Saturday, but it still managed to land the No. 4 spot in the first send out of the college football playoff rankings earlier this week.

The Rebels boast the nation’s longest streak of consecutive games forcing at least one turnover at 31, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NCAA football odds, as they ranked tied for first with a plus-13 turnover margin.

Since the start of the 2012 campaign, the squad is 10-11 SU and 13-8 ATS versus SEC rivals.

 

Scoring Opportunities
The Tigers have done a great job of taking advantage of scoring opportunities, as they’ve outscored their first seven opponents 64-28 in points off turnovers this season.

Auburn possesses a plus-six turnover differential, with dual-threat signal-caller Nick Marshall doing a great job running the offense, as he’s the third player in school history to throw for 2,000 and rush for 1,000 yards in his career.

 

Bo Knows
College football handicappers knew it was only a matter of time until Bo Wallace turned in a bad performance, which came at the wrong time for the Rebels last week in Death Valley, as he had a string of 126 consecutive passes without an interception snapped.

Wallace has still managed to turn the ball over once in Southeastern Conference play, while he ranks 33rd nationally in accounting for 279.6 yards of total offense per game.

 

Prediction
I’m going to recommend that readers back the Tigers as their main pick in this game due to their 10-2 ATS mark in their last 12 SEC games, while also playing the UNDER due to the Rebels falling short of the number in 10 of their last 11 affairs dating back to last year.
