CSU Bakersfield Roadrunners vs. Ole Miss Rebels

Where: The Pavilion at Ole Miss, Oxford, MS

When: Saturday, December 7, 2:00 PM. ET.

The Ole Miss Rebels will be trying to snap their two-game losing streak when they take on the CSU Bakersfield Roadrunners on Saturday afternoon.

Roadrunners Going For Third Win In Four Games

The Roadrunners had their two-game winning streak snapped by UC Santa Barbara in their last game and will try to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Rebels, which will give them their first road win of the year and third win in their last four games.

CSU Bakersfield has played well offensively, averaging 74.1 points per game. The team is shooting 46 percent from the field and 30 percent from three-point range. They were held to 60 points in their last game and will need to do a better job shooting the ball if they want to beat the Rebels on Saturday.

Czar Perry led the way for the Roadrunners in their last game with 23 points and four rebounds, while Greg Lee added seven points for the Roadrunners, who finished the game with only one player scoring in double figures.

The Roadrunners haven’t been as sharp defensively, giving up 69.3 points per game. They played well in their last game, giving up 65 points to the Gauchos, and will need a similar effort if they want to pick up the win in this game.

Rebels Going For Second Win In Five Games

The Rebels have struggled over the past week, losing three of their last four games. However, two of the losses were close games against top 25 teams and the other a blowout loss to an undefeated Oklahoma State team. They will be trying to get back on track with a win over the Roadrunners, which will give them their second win in their last five games.

Ole Miss is averaging 68 points per game, shooting 42 percent from the field and 31 percent from three-point range. The team was held to 58 points in its loss to Butler and will need to play significantly better to pick up the win.

Breein Tyree led the way for the Rebels with 22 points and eight rebounds, while Khadim Sy added 12 points, four rebounds, and three assists for the Rebels, who finished the game with two players scoring in double figures.

The Rebels have done a better job on the defensive end, holding opponents to 64 points per game. They gave up 67 points against the Bulldogs and will need to continue playing well defensively if they want to snap their losing streak on Saturday.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


The Rebels are one of the better defensive teams in the country, holding opponents to 64 points per game, and will frustrate the Roadrunners, who are averaging 74.1 points per game, offensively. The Roadrunners have only one win over a Division I team this season and are averaging 65.7 points against Division I teams, which means they will struggle against a good defensive team like the Rebels. Offensively, Ole Miss is averaging 68 points per game, but their numbers dipped after they laid an egg against Oklahoma State in the NIT Season Tip-Off, scoring 37 points in the loss. With the exception of that game, the Rebels are averaging 72.4 points per game and won’t have any problem scoring against the Roadrunners, who are giving up 69.3 points per game. With the Roadrunners getting blown out in their first three road games of the season, expect the Rebels to win this game comfortably.

Prediction: Ole Miss Rebels

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:


The Roadrunners have struggled on the road, averaging 58 points per game, and will have a hard time scoring against the Rebels, who are giving up 64 points per game. Ole Miss has played well offensively against bad teams, but the Roadrunners have played well defensively in their last four games and haven’t given up more than 74 points in a game since they gave up 177 combined points to San Francisco and Gonzaga in their last two road games. With both teams playing well defensively and neither team boasting a particularly good offense, don’t expect to see a lot of points in this game.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:


The Rebels will cover the first-half spread in this game because they have outplayed the Roadrunners in the first half of their games this season, averaging 34.2 points per game at home, while the Roadrunners average 23.7 points per game on the road.

Prediction: CSU Bakersfield Roadrunners

Half-Time Total Bet

Insiders Status:


The Roadrunners and Rebels are averaging 57.9 combined points per game in the first half and will stay under the first-half total in this game if they maintain their current scoring pace.

Prediction: Under
