Betting on the LSU Tigers (7-2 Overall / 4-2 Conference)
The Tigers tried, man. They tried. They really did. But their efforts were simply not enough to stop the Alabama Crimson Tide freight train last Saturday. In fact, the Tigers didn’t even have enough to score a point, losing to Nick Saban’s team, 29-0. That being said, and assuming they don’t marinate themselves in that loss too much, the Tigers should be back to their normal selves next week against a much lighter opponent in the form of the Razorbacks. Unlike ‘Bama, Arkansas has a defense LSU should be able to break through with relative ease. Arkansas is second-worst in the SEC in scoring defense with 33.7 points allowed per game. Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow went 18-of-35 for just 185 passing yards and an interception. He was also sacked five times by Alabama. Fortunately for Burrows, he’s not going to face the same defense next Saturday and instead will deal with Arkansas’ stop unit that surrenders 259.3 passing yards per game – third most in the SEC.
LSU is 4-1 ATS in its last five road games.
Betting on the Arkansas Razorback (2-7 Overall / 0-5 Conference)
The weekend wasn’t so fine either for the Razorbacks, who absorbed yet another loss, falling prey to the Vanderbilt Commodores, 45-31. Arkansas edged the Commodore in terms of yardage, outgaining their opponents, 447-442, but they committed two turnovers against to zero by Vanderbilt. Arkansas quarterback Ty Storey accounted for two of those errors, as he threw a pair of interceptions. Storey hasn’t been an accurate passer all season long, which is also partly why the Razorbacks like to run the ball more, as evidenced by their 54.29 rushing play percentage. Arkansas has a respectable ground attack that produces 187.9 rushing yards per game, suggesting it can’t be taken lightly by LSU, which just allowed 281 rushing yards to Alabama. In any case, the Razorbacks can’t afford to be careless on offense. They are already averaging 2.4 giveaways per game, which isn’t a good sign heading into a showdown with LSU’s defense that registers 2.3 takeaways per game – seventh most in the FBS.
The Razorbacks are 3-1 ATS in their last four home games.
LSU bounces back from a tough loss to Alabama with a 31-17 win in Fayetteville.
