LSU vs. Texas A&M Prediction
Will LSU rebound from its latest loss and cover as a road favorite versus Texas A&M tonight at 7:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Tigers are 6.5-point road favorites versus the Aggies after opening as a 4-point favorite earlier in the week. As for the total, the number hit the board at 43 at some sports books but it has been bet up to 48.
LSU KEY TRENDS: The Tigers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game and have also covered in four of five after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous contest. They’re just 4-11 at the betting window in their last 15 games played in November, however.
TEXAS A&M KEY TRENDS: The Aggies have been a horrible bet of late, failing to cover in seven straight games and going 0-4 at the betting window in their last four home games. They’re also just 2-12 against the number in their last 14 games played in November, are 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games when playing an opponent with a winning record and are 8-22 ATS in their last 30 conference games.
OUR PREDICTION: The Tigers have dominated in this series, going 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six games against the Aggies. LSU fell last week to Florida but that was because it failed miserably in the red zone. The Tigers still have an incredible defensive front, featuring Arden Key and should keep A&M in check offensively. On the other side, even with Leonard Fournette out, Derrius Guice has proven that he can take on a full workload for LSU and keep the Tigers’ running game moving. This will likely be a low-scoring game, but the Tigers should win by a touchdown-plus.
