How Bookies Get Rich 

"We are looking at an unbelievable 93 percent of the betting public on the side of Mississippi. At press time the line sat at -3 and we anticipated this one to move up a half point or more by game time in order to balance out the action."

That's how one gambling site describes the betting on the Ole Miss-Memphis game. If Memphis wins by four or more (we say they win by at least 10), there could be a lot of Rebel fans with skinny wallets standing around the Grove Sunday night.
