Public Betting: Which side are public bettors on for this Matchup?
Public bettors are jumping on the favorite for Saturday night, as 64% of tickets are currently on LSU.
OUR PREDICTION: LSU has not been a good bet in September, failing to cover in all five of its last five games this month. The Cougars, meanwhile, are 4-1 against the number in September as they typically start fast. This is essentially a home game for the Tigers but they once again have questions on offense and the Cougars have enough talent and depth to keep pace on Saturday night. I'll take the points.
