Ole Miss should be the clear favorite in this game. Vandy just doesn’t seem to have it together this season. The ‘Dores played Texas A&M tight in their opener but since then things have gone haywire with the Dores losing the next two games by a combined 82-14 score. A lot of that had to do with players who came up positive with COVID. I do think Vandy is better than a lot of folks think. However, their best chance at the win this season will likely be against Mississippi State, the game following this game. Vandy scores more than seven points in this game.
