Betting on the LSU Tigers (+28)
Record: 4-4 Overall / 2-3 Conference
Ed Orgeron’s Tigers are virtually out of College Football Playoff contention, and that was once again hammered home by their 31-17 road loss to the Ole Miss Rebels on Oct. 23. LSU heads to Tuscaloosa having won just once in their last five games, though it was a brutal stretch that featured a ranked opponent in all those contests. It’s not about to get any easier for the Tigers, with Alabama ahead, but a week of rest could be enough to fix some of the problems of this team. While a lot has not gone their way this season, at least the Tigers are showing signs of discipline. They are 10th in the nation with 4.3 penalties per game and seventh with just 0.03 penalties per play. Those might be inconsequential in the grand scheme of things against Alabama, but those could also be the difference between the Tigers covering and not covering this weekend in Tuscaloosa.
LSU is 5-5 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Alabama Crimson Tide (-28)
Record: 7-1 Overall / 4-1 Conference
Like the Tigers, Nick Saban’s boys are also well-rested for this game. The Crimson Tide are fresh off a bye after destroying the Tennessee Vols on Oct. 23 at home, 52-24. Before that, Alabama rebounded from an upset loss to the Texas A&M Aggies in College Station by decimating the Mississippi State Bulldogs in a 49-9 victory on the road. Now clearly back to their dominant ways, the Crimson Tide are looking to add to the woes of LSU. Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, who had 371 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 31/43 completions can light it up again when he takes on LSU’s stop unit that hasn’t been effective in stopping opposing receivers from leaking out. The Tigers are letting opponents complete 65.45 percent of passes and are allowing 264.0 passing yards per contest.
Alabama is 9-1 against the spread in its last 10 games as the home team.
Alabama wins, 44-14.
