Auburn should be focused and eager to get back on the court coming off a tough road loss, but 16 points is a bit too many. Ole Miss doesn’t have a very good record, but they’re not getting blown out all that often. The Rebels lost by double digits just one time in their last nine games, and they should cover this number on the road.
