Cappers Analysis:


Both teams enter with identical 15-16 records. Clearly with a spread like this, the oddsmakers believe these schools are very evenly matched. And I completely concur. So in a contest which I envision being decided late or even in extra time, I'm going to grab the points. Ole Miss beat Georgia by ten points in the regular season, which sets this up as a revenge spot as well for Georgia. Anthony Edwards though is easily the best player on the floor today (19.3 PPG for the Bulldogs) and I think he'll ultimately be a difference maker as well.

Analysis to come.

Matt Fargo: Fargo's SEC Wednesday Crusher (145-118-6 YTD)

Georgia was arguably the biggest disappointment in the SEC as it was picked to finish sixth but it limps into the SEC Tournament as the No. 13 seed. The Bulldogs were blown out at LSU by 30 points in their last game to finish with two straight losses. This is a strong offense as the Bulldogs season scoring average of 75.7 ppg is on pace to be their highest since the 2002-03 season. Earlier this season, the Rebels defeated the Bulldogs at home by 10 points which was the only true road win for Mississippi so revenge is in play. Mississippi is also coming off a blowout loss in its final game as it fell to rival Mississippi St. by 25 points. Here, we play on underdogs revenging a loss as a favorite, in a game involving two teams with winning percentages between .400 and .499. This situation is 130-79 ATS (62.2 percent) since 1997.

Scott Rickenbach: Power Five Annihilation CBB 10*

The Bulldogs just got hammered in their season finale against LSU but Georgia actually had 10 more field goal attempts than the Tigers and yet lost the game by 30 points. It was simply "one of those games" and is now giving us some line value here as a result. This is a revenge game for the Bulldogs as they have lost 3 straight meetings with Ole Miss. What better time for payback than the SEC tourney? Georgia finished the regular season with back to back losses to Florida and LSU but this was preceded by a 3-1 stretch in which they only loss the Bulldogs had was in overtime! The Rebels enter this game off a disheartening blowout loss to Mississippi State as those Bulldogs are their biggest rivals. That was the 5th straight loss for the Rebels in games played away from Ole Miss. The Rebels have allowed 73.2 points per game their last 5 games. The Bulldogs have averaged scoring 75.2 points per game in regulation of their last 6 road games prior to the ugly season-ending loss at LSU. The Dawgs were ultra-competitive in all those road games and the last five included an outright win and an OT loss. They get over the hump again here in a revenge game against a Rebels team getting a little too much respect from the betting markets in this one. The Bulldogs average 10.5 points per game more than the Rebels in comparing games played away from home this season for these two SEC foes.


Best of luck!

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
