The college football season may be in a bit of jeopardy on the field due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Las Vegas is still moving forward as if it’s full-steam ahead starting in August.
Caesar’s Entertainment released its full slate of FBS win totals for the 2020 season earlier this week, their gambling prediction for each team’s over/under win totals.
Ole Miss is pegged at an over/under of 5.5 wins by Caesar’s with the over 5.5 drawing -120 odds, meaning that in theory, it should be slightly more likely by their predictions for the Rebels to reach six wins than to fall short and reach just five.
