Seattle is hoping to rebound from a tough stretch, where they lost three of their last four games. On Tuesday, they aim to pull the upset on the road against an undefeated Ole Miss squad.

The Rebels enter this contest with a 3-0 record. So far, they've been dominant, defeating their opponents by an average margin of 22 points.

Tuesday's game takes place at The Pavillion with tip-off scheduled for 7:30. The game airs on the SEC+ Network.

The Redhawks need more consistency

Seattle has shown bouts of inconsistency this season. The Redhawks made only one 1 of their 12 three-point attempts in the first half in their most recent loss to Syracuse. However, they were able to recover in the second half, knocking down seven shots from behind the arc to keep pace with the Orange.

This indicates that when the Redhawks do a better job with shot selection, they can keep pace with talented teams. This will be a far harder challenge on Tuesday when they face a Rebels' defense that's tenacious in challenging shots. Ole Miss holds opponents to 32% shooting which is 10th best nationally.

Given this huge challenge, the Redhawks must do a better job of settling down, making the extra pass, and taking the shots when they're provided. And when they miss, one player to watch is Myles Carter. His ability to dominate in the paint could provide Seattle with a rebounding advantage and an opportunity for second-chance scores. They'll need this in abundance against a talented Ole Miss team.

The Rebels looking for 4-0 start

Defensively, Ole Miss likes to employ different defensive looks such as using traps to disrupt opposing offenses. Given Seattle's ability to knock down shots from the perimeter (at times) the Rebels will use their size and speed to limit the Redhawks' perimeter scoring opportunities.

This high-pressure defense has a two-pronged effect. Along with challenging shots, the Rebels are adept at forcing turnovers, Against a pretty good Western Michigan squad, Ole Miss forced 19 turnovers, including 13 in the second half. The Rebels are one of the best defenses in the country in this regard, committing 12 steals per game. Look for this defense to disrupt a Seattle offense that's struggled with inconsistency.

When Ole Miss's defense clicks, it allows the offense a chance to run up-tempo. Guards Devontae Shuler and Breein Tyree lead the charge. Between the two of them, they average 31 points per game.

Strong guard play is only one component to success on Tuesday. Another battle they must win is in the paint. If they can win the rebounding advantage, it'll prevent Seattle from a chance to keep pace.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The key to the Rebels' success is their defense, which will have a big game on Tuesday. Look for Ole Miss to apply pressure to keep an inconsistent Seattle offense from generating momentum early. In turn, this leads to easy fast-break opportunities where the Rebels hold the advantage with their solid guard play. These factors combine to help Ole Miss pull out to a dominant lead and hold off a late charge by Seattle to improve to 4-0.

Prediction: Ole Miss

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Seattle averages 80 points per game, but they haven't faced a defense as talented as they will on Tuesday. Ole Miss holds the Redhawks' offense in check for large portions of the game. Fueled by the strength of their defense, Ole Miss uses this to create tempo to knock down shots in transition. Ole Miss reaches its season average of 74 points per game while keeping Seattle far below their season scoring average.
