College Basketball Betting Trends
The Tigers are 0-8 ATS in a road game with a total between 155 and 159.5 since 1997.
The Tigers are 1-2 ATS against Auburn the last three years.
This could be a letdown spot for Louisiana State after the comeback OT victory. Auburn had a solid start to the season, but has fallen off recently. It’s clear the talent is there and with AU searching for a key victory, I expect the visitors to step up in a big way here.
