    Mississippi Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace is fourth in the Southeastern Conference in averaging 266.4 passing yards per game, which is important to consider when making your college football picks Saturday, as he prepares to take on the Missouri Tigers at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

    Sports bettors will find that the Rebels are three-point home underdogs in the NCAA football odds, with the betting total sitting at 58 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this high-profile matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction along the way.

Missouri Tigers

1 of 3

    The Missouri Tigers are one of just eight teams in college football to rank in the top 20 nationally in both offensive scoring and defensive scoring, which has played a big part in the team's 9-1 straight up and 8-1-1 against-the-spread record.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Tigers have won three of their four games following a bye week, with no clear edge in terms of the betting total (2-2 Over/Under).

Mississippi Rebels

    The Mississippi Rebels have won four games in a row, with the offense eclipsing the 500-yard mark in each of those contests.

    College football handicappers will find that the Rebels are 3-1 against the spread as an underdog during the 2013 campaign.

Prediction

3 of 3

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Mississippi Rebels, as they've covered the number in both of their opportunities as a home underdog against conference opponents in 2013.
