Ole Miss sees split predictions with new batch of early odds for SEC games

11by:Jake Thompson05/14/24


The 2024 college football season is just over three months away from getting started when Ole Miss hosts Furman on August 31 to kick off the most highly anticipated seasons in quite some time.

If the Rebels are going to achieve some of the lofty goals and expectations the fans and national media are starting to put on their shoulders then a strong Southeastern Conference run is needed. Really, an undefeated SEC record is close to that Ole Miss needs to have.

The schedule does lean to the favor of the Rebels with a SEC schedule that does not include Alabama, Auburn or Texas A&M. Those teams, plus Vanderbilt, are replaced with South Carolina, Florida, Georgia and SEC newcomer Oklahoma.

But the experts in Las Vegas are not quite ready to anoint Ole Miss as a week-in-and-week-out favorite throughout the eight week SEC slate. More early lines are trickling out with each passing week that gets the new season closer.

Draft Kings released three new line for Ole Miss games against LSU, Florida and the Sooners plus updated the line for the Bulldogs game.

The Rebels find themselves with split results with the early lines, being favorites in two and underdogs in the other two, handing them a predicted two SEC losses.

When it comes to the games Ole Miss is favored in Draft Kings likes its chances against Oklahoma as a six-point favorite. The Rebels are also a 6.5-point road favorite against Florida.

Then there are the two underdog games and the opponents should not be a surprise. In a road game at LSU the Rebels are 2.5-point road dogs. Then the rematch against Georgia at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium has had Ole Miss the underdog but now that line moved to seven points.

All of these lines are being set at least five months before any of these games will be played and surely they will fluctuate as the season gets underway and early season results roll in.

Ole Miss SEC games that have yet to get the early spread treatment are Kentucky, at South Carolina, at Arkansas and the Egg Bowl showdown against Mississippi State in Oxford.
