LSU dominates again
The LSU Tigers are coming off a 36-13 win at Mississippi State last week to improve to 7-0 on the season. LSU is 3-0 in the SEC while putting up a 5-2 mark against the spread. They are 5-2 with the over.
LSU has one of the top offenses in the nation, averaging 50.1 points and 540 yards per game. Defensively, the Tigers are giving up 20 points and 320.7 yards per contest. Joe Burrow is leading the team this season with 2,484 passing yards and 29 touchdowns with just three interceptions. Justin Jefferson is his top receiver with 48 catches for 759 yards and nine touchdowns. Clyde Edwards-Helaire is the leading rusher with 547 yards and seven touchdowns. JaCoby Stevens is leading the defense with 38 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions.
Auburn short-handed in the backfield
The Auburn football team bounced back from its first loss of the season last weekend when the Tigers won at Arkansas, 51-10. Auburn is now 6-1 on the season, 3-1 in the SEC, 6-1 against the spread and 4-3 with the over.
Auburn has been led by a pretty sound defense that is giving up just 17.1 points and 319 yards per game. Offensively, the Tigers are putting up 36.3 points and 433.7 yards per game. Freshman QB Bo Nix has thrown for 1,301 yards and 11 touchdowns this season while also rushing for 210 yards and three scores. JaTarvious Whitlow has been the leading rusher with 544 yards and seven scores, but is out this week with a knee injury. Seth Williams is the team’s top receiver with 25 catches for 458 yards and seven touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Tigers are 12-3 against the spread in their last 15 games in October and 13-4 ATS in their last 17 SEC games.
The Tigers have covered the spread in seven of their last eight overall and in four of their last five following a win.
LSU has won and covered the spread in three of the last four in this series. I like LSU to do it again tonight. Auburn is a good team, but the Tigers are going to be without a big weapon in the backfield and that puts more of the game on Box Nix, who I don’t believe will get the job done. LSU’s offense has been able to score on everyone. It put up 42 on Florida, while the Tigers were held to just 13 by the Gators. LSU might be a team that can win it all and I just don’t see Auburn having the weapons to match them.
