2021 Outback Bowl Ole Miss Rebels vs. Indiana Hoosiers Matchup Odds and Picks

2021 Outback Bowl Ole Miss Rebels vs. Indiana Hoosiers Odds and Picks

College Football players and fans love steak.  Every bit as much as their favorite sport.  And that makes the Outback Bowl a perfect bowl sponsor.  In fact, the Outback Bowl has been a staple of the Tampa area since 1986.  This year’s fortunate invitees are Ole Miss and Indiana.  However, Indiana isn’t feeling the College football betting love.  Consider they’re feeling robbed at not getting a New Year’s Six Bowl.  Their former athletic director tweeted that the Big Ten won’t help.  He said the B1G is an old boy’s network that doesn’t want Indiana to succeed.

2021 Outback Bowl CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, Ole Miss will catch top online sportsbook consideration.  An offense that gave Alabama a scare is why.  So too does Rebels coach Lane Kiffin draw betting handle.  Squares are mesmerized with his swag and flash.  He epitomizes the Twitter generation.  Sharps love the toughness and soundness of Indiana.  But they aren’t crazy about the point spread.  On the other hand, smart handicappers rarely rely on defenseless teams.  In view of Mississippi’s defensive marks, gamblers know Indiana will score.  While the Hoosiers defense could be the best that Ole Miss has faced in 2020.

Ole Miss in the Fast Lane with Kiffin

The Outback Bowl offers an intriguing matchup of coaches.  Namely, Lane Kiffin of Ole Miss is the rebel leader of the Rebels.  The proud bad boy and antihero has improved Ole Miss recruiting.  But the record is lagging behind.  Ole Miss is a half team.  They bring high-octane offense but nothing on defense.  Commencing with his arrival is Kiffin generating excitement at Oxford.  From this point recruiting has been strong.  A bright future beckons for the Ole Miss program.

Ole Miss has a betting on college football record of 4-5 straight up and against the spread.  And then the Rebels are 6-3 over the total. Ole Miss ranks 13th in the nation for scoring offense but 122nd for points allowed.

Tom Allen Makes Ignites Hoosiers Pride

Indiana Hoosiers coach Tom Allen is a nominee for national coach of the year honors.  To demonstrate he refused to accept the old mantra of Indiana being a basketball school.  Allen says IU should win at football and basketball.  He has instilled a level of toughness that’s been lacking for years in Bloomington.  Most important of all his players believe they can overcome anything.  And beat anyone.  Allen has done the impossible.  Indiana is the second-best team in the Big Ten.  More emphatically they may be the toughest team in America.

Indiana is 6-1 straight up, 7-0 against the spread, and 4-3 over the total.  IU has bet on NCAAF rankings of 54th nationally for scoring offense and 19th for points allowed.  Even when starting quarterback Michael Penix Jr was lost to injury Indiana kept winning.

Fashion that many people agree about the Big Ten’s stodgy ways.  But then Kevin Warren is the current Big Ten commissioner.  Perhaps it’s just incompetence that kept Indiana out of a bigger bowl.

In this situation, the Hoosiers are a vastly superior football team to Ole Miss.  Indiana is tougher and has one of the better defenses in the country.  In turn, few teams are as nasty as the Hoosiers.  Ole Miss is fun to watch but has a lot of work to do on defense.  More emphatically their defense is a major betting on NCAAF liability.  Lane Kiffin garners plenty of headlines and Twitter likes.  Counter to that is the substance of Tom Allen.  Indiana’s coach climbs impossible mountains.  There is no flash with Allen.  He’s all heart.
