According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, LSU is a 7-point home favorite versus Auburn after opening as a 7-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, currently sits at 48.5 points after opening at 52.5.

After many pundits picked Auburn to contend for a national title, the Tigers' season has started extremely slow due to injuries and first-year starters on both sides of the ball. Although he did lead Auburn on a pair of late scoring drives in last weekend's overtime victory over Jacksonville State, quarterback Jeremy Johnson has also struggled to run Gus Malzahn's offense.

Johnson faces a tough test against LSU's vaunted defense and will likely struggle today on the road. LSU has a habit of making things interesting (take last week's win over Mississippi State, for example), but running back Leonard Fournette is arguably the best running back in the SEC and has rushed for 140-plus yards in each of his last three games dating back to last season. Look for LSU to run behind him and take advantage of Johnson's miscues.

The favorite is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams.
