The 14th-ranked Ole Miss Rebels will look to continue their recent domination over the seventh-ranked Kentucky Wildcats when they meet in a SEC crossover matchup on Saturday. The Rebels (4-0) have won the last two meetings with the Wildcats (4-0), and six of the last eight. Mississippi is coming off a 35-27 win over Tulsa in a game they trailed 14-7 late in the first quarter. Kentucky, meanwhile, trailed early against Northern Illinois before building a 17-point lead early in the fourth quarter before hanging on for the non-conference win.

Kickoff from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Miss., is set for noon ET. Ole Miss is a 6.5-point favorite in the latest Kentucky vs. Ole Miss odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over/under for total points scored is 55.

Before you make any Kentucky vs. Ole Miss picks or college football predictions, you NEED to see the predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past six-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of more than $3,100 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns!

The model knows the Rebels are outscoring their opposition 164-40 this season, partly due to the play of sophomore quarterback Jaxson Dart, a transfer from Southern California. Dart has completed 51 of 82 passes (62.2 percent) for 697 yards and five touchdowns. He has thrown two interceptions, but has a rating of 148.8. Dart has also rushed 29 times for 201 yards (6.9 average), including a long of 36 yards.

The model also knows the Wildcats have a stable of receivers who have lit up the opposition this season. Senior Tayvion Robinson leads the team with 20 receptions for 349 yards (17.5 average) and two touchdowns. Robinson was the difference in last week's win over Northern Illinois. He caught seven passes for 147 yards (21.0 average) and two touchdowns. It was his second 100-plus receiving game of the year. He caught six passes for 136 yards (22.7 average) in the season-opening win over Miami of Ohio.

Now, the model has set its sights on Kentucky vs. Ole Miss. We can tell you it is leaning Under the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50% of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any college football picks.
