A lot of bowl teams this year have been finishing disappointing 2020’s, but that won’t be the case at the Outback Bowl today as the Ole Miss Rebels face the No. 12 Indiana Hoosiers.

So where are sports bettors going as we get closer to game time? Let’s take a look. All odds and info were provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point Spread

Right now Indiana is a 10-point favorite at DraftKings, receiving 63% of the handle and 58% of the bets.

Is the public right?

Probably, as Indiana has shown all season they were very worthy of their status in the Top 10-or-12 of college football. They’ll have to deal with an explosive offense today, and they’ll be missing starting quarterback Michael Penix Jr., but should still be the strong favorite.

Over/Under

The total is set at 66.5, with 61% of the handle and 63% of the bets on the over

Is the public right?

Plenty of these bowl game overs in 2020 have been sucker plays, but not this one. Ole Miss or their opponent has put up 50 or more in three of their last four games. The Rebels can score, and don’t play great defense. That’s a good combo for over wagers.

Moneyline

Indiana is a -385 favorite, with 68% of the cash and 74% of the bets on the Hoosiers. That means Ole Miss is +290 with 32% of the cash and 26% of the bets.

Is the public right?

Here’s the thing about the University of Mississippi: If they get rolling, they can play with anyone in America. They put 48 on Alabama, and in case you haven’t heard, they’re pretty good. And Lane Kiffin with time to prepare can be an upset machine. We like Ole Miss with the moneyline and those odds, as this game is breaking one way or the other.

The bettors like Tom Allen in his return to Tampa, and he served as a defensive coordinator in Raymond James Stadium for the USF Bulls. If they can get stops, they should be able to score in bunches.
