LSU Tigers vs Georgia Bulldogs Predictions, Picks, Odds, and NCAA Basketball Betting Preview – February 16 2019

The No. 19 LSU Tigers (+8,000 to win the national title) are still very close behind the No. 1 Tennessee Volunteers for leadership in the SEC standings, and they could add more pressure to the Vols if they could handle the Georgia Bulldogs (+200,000) this weekend. The Bulldogs only have one conference win so far, but are dangerous when taken lightly.

Betting on the LSU Tigers (18-15 Overall / 8-10 Conference)

The Tigers must still be on cloud nine after coming away with an upset win over the No. 5 Kentucky Wildcats in Lexington on Tuesday, 73-71. A tip-in by Kavell Bigby-Williams at the buzzer gave LSU the victory, thus extending LSU’s unbeaten run to three games. The game was for Kentucky to win, as the Wildcats had an eight-point lead at the half, but a resilient LSU side didn’t let up. The Tigers defense stole the limelight in this game, as LSU collected eight steals and four blocks. Tremont Waters led the team with 15 points to go with five assists and three steals. Waters and the Tigers should have an easier day dissecting the Bulldogs’ defense this weekend, as they have already done that in a 92-82 home win over Georgia last month. Waters scored 26 points in that game, while Skylar Mays added 20. As a team, LSU shot 50.0 percent from the field.

LSU, which is ninth in the nation with 82.9 points per game, is 11-7 against the spread (ATS) in games after a win this season.

Betting on the Georgia Bulldogs (18-15 Overall / 7-11 Conference)

Athens is burning. That’s how we picture what’s happening there right now, with the Bulldogs still struggling to put an end to their losing streak, which has not reached five games after losing to the Texas A&M Aggies, 73-56, in College Station on Tuesday. The Bulldogs had no answer to the Aggies’ second unit, which outscored Georgia’s bench, 39-10. That wasn’t the case though in Georgia’s first meeting with LSU in which the Bulldogs’ bench had 35 bench points to just 19 by the Tigers. Georgia even bettered their season average of 74.0 points per game in that game, thanks to LSU’s faulty defense. The Bulldogs shot 53.6 percent from the floor and went 8-for-17 from behind the arc against LSU. They need to be more careful with the ball, though, as the Tigers are among the national leaders in steals and in forcing turnovers. Georgia had 17 turnovers in the LSU game to just eight by the Tigers.

Georgia is 4-1-1 ATS this season as an underdog.

Writer’s Prediction

LSU wins, 81-73.
