Mississippi vs. South Carolina Odds

Mississippi vs. South Carolina odds were the most in demand heading into Wednesday of any game being played out this week, mainly because this is a much anticipated Thursday night game.  The matchup should be a good one based on the relatively small line of Mississippi -3 that we are finding just about everywhere including Sports Interaction.

The line on this game initially opened up at -4 ½.

A whopping 90 percent of the betting action is going towards Mississippi even though South Carolina beat them on the road last year as a +2 underdog.  Mississippi is seen as a slightly better team coming into this one since they are now the road favorites.

From Stats.com:

Mississippi (2-0) has a short week to get ready for its SEC opener after defeating Southeastern Louisiana 52-6 on Saturday. The victory came after the team spent its bye week recovering from a case of the swine flu that affected more than a third of the roster.

Although they were at less than full strength, the Rebels amassed 500 yards of offense to win their eighth straight, their longest run since winning 10 in a row in 1971-72.

Mississippi, which expects to have star defensive end Greg Hardy (sprained left ankle) back this week, forced five turnovers Saturday and stopped Southeastern Louisiana on all 14 third-down attempts.

"Defensively you have to prove it every day," free safety Kendrick Lewis said. "What we did tonight doesn't mean anything at South Carolina."

The Gamecocks (2-1, 0-1) are coming off their best offensive game of the season, but they haven't faced a defense as talented as Mississippi's.

South Carolina compiled 516 total yards in Saturday's 38-16 win over Florida Atlantic. The Gamecocks led 17-16 at half, but scored on three straight possessions in the second half to break open the game.

South Carolina's running game finally got on track, racking up 287 yards against the Owls after rushing for 222 in the first two games combined.

 

Some important Mississippi vs. South Carolina odds trends:

The Rebels are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win.

They are 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.

The Rebels are 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game.

They are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games.

The Rebels are 9-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

Mississippi is 17-5 ATS in their last 22 games overall.

The one drawback for Mississippi other than the fact that they lost to South Carolina at home last year is that they are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games as a road favorite.

These two stats are among the most solid of those presented above, Gambling911.com believes, and it is one of the reasons why we won't be making a selection on this game.

It should also be noted that the Gamecocks are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS win.

South Carolina is 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games as a home underdog of 3.5-10.0.
