Auburn, ranked #14, is making its sixth CWS appearance and second in the past three tournaments. But it’s Ole Miss that oddsmakers like as the -128 favorites in this game.

Offensively, the Rebels are hitting .279. Leading the way is Kevin Graham, who’s batting .331 clip. Tim Elko, who missed a month following an ACL tear, has clouted 22 home runs and driven in 71 runs. He crushed a pair of grand slams in the NCAA Regionals.

Rebel pitchers gave up only seven hits in two super-regional games against Southern Mississippi. The bullpen has not allowed an earned run in 17.1 postseason innings.

Tigers Doing It In Different Ways

In the NCAA Regionals, Auburn got the job done with the bats. The Tigers clubbed 11 home runs and outscored UCLA and Florida State 51-18 in a three-game span. That’s the most runs ever scored by an SEC team in an NCAA Regional.

Samford transfer and SEC Player of the Year Sammy DiChiara is leading the nation in on-base percentage at .560. Batting .392, DiChiara is one home run shy of matching the Tigers record of 23 set by fellow SEC Player of the Year Hunter Morris in 2010. Junior infielder Blake Rambusch is second on the team in batting average (.336) and leading the team with 16 stolen bases.

Facing #3 seed Oregon State in the NCAA Super Regional, Auburn scored just 14 runs over the course of three games. Pitching got the job done as the Tigers won 2-1, taking two-run (7-5) and one-run (4-3) victories, while dropping a 4-3 decision in the other game. Closer Blake Burkhalter’s 15 saves rank him second in the nation.

Auburn batted just .209 with 11 runs in the last four regular-season games. In the tournament, the Tigers are hitting .303 with 67 hits and 65 runs over four games.

Ole Miss vs Auburn Prediction

The best bet in this game might be the over. During a three-game regular-season meeting, Ole Miss won two of three games. But the average runs per game was 20.

The hay is in the barn.

The Tigers are looking to be a team with the necessary balance of hitting and pitching to go all the way in the CWS. And both elements are coming together right now.

Picks: Auburn Tigers (+104); Over 9.5 runs (-118).
