College Football Betting Trends
The Rebels are just 7-16 against the spread in their last 23 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a win.
The Tigers have covered the spread in six straight road games and in 14 of their last 19 conference games.
LSU has won and covered the spread in three straight against Ole Miss. I do expect the Tigers to have a letdown in some ways this week, but I think it will come on offense. LSU struggled on offense following the win over Florida. The Tigers probably will not be as explosive today. However, I still think they can cover. The LSU defense is still pretty strong and the Ole Miss offense isn’t very intimidating. I expect LSU to be able to comfortably win this game, it will just be a little lower scoring than usual for the Tigers.
