Can Ole Miss Sneak Through the Backdoor at Auburn? 

Ole Miss Rebels at Auburn Tigers CashBet Wagering Analysis

Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl is one of the best things going in college basketball.  Consider how the transfer portal and one-and-done players destroy player identity.  Fans and gamblers used to name players on most of the teams.  However, these days only the coaches are recognizable March Madness betting figures.  And nobody is a bigger brand these days than Pearl.  Accordingly, his transformation of Auburn has been a college hoops miracle.  Problematic is that the betting public has caught on to it.  Auburn’s wagering value is taking a hit from too many squares.
