The Alabama Crimson Tide have lost three of their last four games, and are desperatley looking to get back in the win column tonight when they take on the Ole Miss Rebels.

Alabama had high expectations heading into this season, but it is just 14-9 and sit in ninth place in the SEC.

Ole Miss has also struggled in SEC play as well, holding a 3-7 record in conference play. They fell to the Florida Gators 62-57 in overtime in their last time out.

Alabama vs. Ole Miss Prediction and Pick

This is a matchup between an overrated Alabama team and an underrated Ole Miss team, so I'll glady take the points with the Rebels at home.

Look no further than these two teams' defensive numbers to find out who the best bet is in this game. Ole Miss ranks 75th in defensive efficiency while Alabama ranks 219th. Not only that, but it's a great stylistic matchup for Ole Miss as well.

Alabama ranks 17th in 3-point shot rate, their offense begins and ends on the perimeter. Now they face a Rebels team that ranks 29th in opponent three-point field goal percentage, allowing teams to shoot just 29.7% from beyond the arc.

I don't know if they have enough talent or skill to win this game outright, but I certainly like Ole Miss to keep the final score within five points.

Pick: Ole Miss +5.5
