Betting on the LSU Tigers (+4)
Record: 15-2 Overall/3-2 Conference
LSU fell prey to the Arkansas Razorbacks in last Saturday’s 65-58 loss in Baton Rouge. With the loss, the Tigers saw their three-game win streak, which was nonetheless impressive. During that span, the Tigers defeated the Kentucky Wildcats, Tennessee Volunteers, and the Florida Gators. LSU is having success with its defense that has been stymying opponents’ In fact, the Tigers own arguably the best defense in the nation. They are allowing just 57.0 points per game and limits opponents to only 41.7 effective field goal percentage, third and second in Division I basketball this season. Moreover, LSU is no. 1 in adjusted defensive efficiency with just 82.6 points allowed per 100 possessions. This is a team that has what it takes to bottle up Alabama’s offense.
LSU is 7-3 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (-4)
Record: 11-6 Overall/2-3 Conference
Alabama started conference play with back-to-back wins over Tennessee and Florida. Then the wheels fell off for the Crimson Tide, who have lost three games in a row since. In their last outing, the Crimson Tide lost to the Mississippi State Bulldogs on the road last Saturday, 78-76. This is just the first time in the Nate Oats era that Alabama has lost three games in succession. Alabama is looking to get its shooting rhythm back after making just 39.3 percent of their shots from the field while also turning the ball over 15 times. With a three-headed attack composed of Jaden Shackelford, Jahvon Quinerly, and Keon Ellis, Alabama is averaging 81.8 points per game this season – 10th-best in the nation. Alabama has the slowest pace in the SEC this season, so far, as it owns an adjusted tempo of 73.6 in conference play.
The over is 8-2 in Alabama’s last 10 games overall.
Alabama wins, 74-72.
