Mississippi vs Tulane Betting Trends
There are some important betting trends to keep in mind before betting on the Ole Miss vs Tulane game. Firstly, this matchup has historically been one-sided, with Ole Miss sporting a 6-0 record and 4-2 ATS mark in six all-time encounters with the Green Wave.
A couple of other trends to note are Ole Miss’ strong performance in September games, as they are 8-0 in their past eight games played in the month. Tulane, meanwhile, hasn’t performed well against the SEC, sporting a 0-11 mark in their 11 games vs SEC opponents.
When it comes to CFB public betting trends, the Rebels are garnering a staggering 95% of the spread money so far. Bettors are also leaning towards the “over”, with 75% of over/under wagers projecting more than 67 combined points being scored.
Rebels Start with a Bang
Ole Miss began the 2023 college football season with a convincing 73-7 victory over FCS Mercer in Week 1. Quarterback Jaxson Dart threw for 334 yards and four touchdowns, while running back Quinshon Judkins rushed for 60 yards and two scores on the ground.
Lane Kiffin’s Rebels were favored by 35 points over the Bears, and they had no problem covering the spread. The over of 58 points also easily cashed thanks to the Rebels’ offensive dominance. You can thank wide receiver Tre Harris, who hauled in four of Dart’s six TD passes.
Ole Miss’ defense was a big issue last season, ranking 81st in the country in points per game allowed. It’s hard to read much into an FBS vs FCS game, but the Rebels did at least hold the Bears to just 235 yards of total offense in Week 1.
Green Wave Expected to Make Noise
Tulane is a trendy pick in the odds to make the College Football Playoff, and they didn’t disappoint in their Week 1 game against South Alabama. Powered by a sensational performance from QB Michael Pratt, the Green Wave cruised to a 37-17 victory.

Pratt completed 14-of-15 passes for 294 yards and four touchdowns, while wide receiver Jha’Quan Jackson hauled in three passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns. The Green Wave racked up nearly 300 yards through the air.
Despite losing defensive force Dorian Williams during the offseason, Tulane’s defense showed promise in Week 1, limiting South Alabama’s usually strong run game to less than three yards per carry. The Jaguars managed just 265 yards of total offense against the Green Wave.
Ole Miss vs Tulane Prediction
Both teams have shown incredible offensive capabilities, but Ole Miss has the edge in terms of raw talent. However, Tulane’s defense could be the game-changer. The Green Wave have shown that they can shut down strong offenses, and their home advantage could tilt the scales in their favor.
When it comes to our Ole Miss vs Tulane prediction, we’re sticking with the Rebels. Niffin’s experience and tactical acumen could be the deciding factor in this matchup. His ability to adapt and make in-game adjustments is second to none, and that could prove crucial in a game that promises to be a nail-biter.
Yes, Tulane’s defense is impressive, but it remains to be seen how it will hold up against top competition after losing its top five tacklers from one season ago. Kiffin has this Rebels’ offense clicking on all cylinders, and we like them to cover the spread on Saturday.
