7-Kentucky Wildcats at 14-Ole Miss Rebels Final Betting Prediction

The line has steadily increased to favor Ole Miss, which makes sense considering the fact Kentucky leaped into the top ten after beating Florida.

Since losing to the Wildcats, the Gators have dropped a game to Tennessee. So it looked like AP voters may have handed Kentucky more props for beating Florida than they should have.

The Rebels have dominated. Kentucky hasn’t. In fact, the Wildcats struggled versus Northern Illinois in their last, beating the Huskies by a mere 8 points.

On Saturday, Ole Miss will expose Kentucky for what they are, a good football team, but not one of the ten best in the nation. Not only will the Rebels win, but they should easily cover the spread. A close to 20 point victory is not out of the question.
