TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH
#149 MISSISSIPPI (-16′) over Georgia Tech at 3:30 PM EST
With plenty of steam off season-opening blowout wins over Troy and Central Arkansas, Mississippi will have no trouble extending the margin against Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets check into this non-conference battle off a 35-17 home win over Western Carolina and head coach Geoff Collins and his troops are ripe for another beating.
Technically speaking, this is a solid spot for the Rebels. Since 1980, SEC road teams coming off a straight up win have dominated ACC foes notching a solid 40-26-2 SU and 40-27-1 ATS record. If our “play on” side is heavily favored by -10 or more, this conference situation cruises to a reliable 14-0 SU and 10-3-1 ATS. Also, in the regular season lined up against a non-conference opponent that busts in with steam off a straight up win, Ole Miss holds a profitable 29-16 ATS tally including a sizzling 22-7 ATS provided its opponent was victorious by 12 points or more last.
With a dismal 11-28 SU and 10-25-1 ATS mark in their last 39 games, the Yellow Jackets aren’t exactly striking fear into opposing teams. In this run checking in with confidence off a straight up win, the Bees fall to a horrible 1-10 SU and 1-9 ATS including a nasty 0-8 ATS provided their opponent holds a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better. Also, when priced as a home dog, Coach Collins and his troops own a pitiful 9-29 SU and 12-26 ATS record in their last 38 tries including an ugly 1-21 SU and 3-19 ATS if the Yellow Jackets are grabbing +4.5 or more. That spells trouble for Tech.
The Rebels own one of the deepest offensive lines in all of college football and this physical group will help wear down the Bees as the game progresses. Take Mississippi. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
