College Basketball Betting Trends
The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. LSU is 5-1 ATS in its last six games overall.
The Aggies is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games. The underdogs is 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings.
The Tigers are on a roll and have the 15th-ranked offense nationally in terms of efficiency and are going against a team that struggles defensively, while also having even more issues on the offensive end. I think the LSU streak will continue with a convincing win tonight.
