Alabama vs. LSU College Basketball Prediction
The home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the favorite is 19-7-1 at the betting window in the last 27 meetings. That said, I’ll be fading both trends tonight.
Alabama has been one of the more underrated teams this college hoops season, cashing in 11 of their last 14 road games and posting a 9-3 ATS record in their last 12 games as an underdog. They’re also 8-3 against the number in their last 11 games as a road dog, are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last six games when facing an opponent with a winning record and have covered in 20 of their last 26 opportunities coming off an ATS win.
The Tigers, meanwhile, are 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games following a straight up win and are 0-4 against the number in their last four home games when facing a team with a winning road record.
