LSU is just 5-11 at the betting window in its last 16 games versus Ole Miss. The Tigers are also just 1-4-1 against the spread in the last six meetings between these two teams.
Who We Like: LSU. Since that loss to Troy, the Tigers have been a different team. They’ve found a spark offensively and are playing stout defense. Shea Patterson and A.J. Brown will be tough to stop, but the Tigers rank 14th in the nation in passing yards allowed (170.6). LSU is also allowing just 19.4 points per game, which ranks 26th. Ole Miss will make some plays offensively but in the end, I like LSU to pull away.
