This, because one of these two teams has always been ranked in the Top 5 and the game has been decided by six points or less. Auburn’s coming off an ugly 3-2 road win against Mississippi State in which they failed to cover the NCAAF betting line.
On the other side of the field, LSU was just happy to get a game in after hurricanes on consecutive weekends almost forced them to cancel their game against North Texas which they won handily by a 42-3 final count.
LSU has been dominant this far in their wins over Appalachian State and North Texas, scoring 82 points and only allowing 16 combined points. LSU’s ground game was dynamic vs. the Mean Green as eight players combined for 216 yards on the ground and four touchdowns in the rout.
On the defensive side of the ball, LSU was able to keep North Texas and their dynamic WR Casey Fitzgerald in check by holding the Mean Green to 199 yards of total offense. College football betting fans should know coming into this game that LSU was 1-3-1 ATS per the closing NCAA odds as a road favorite last season.
Auburn didn’t play its best game last week in Starkville and will need a considerably better effort, especially from its offense, if it hopes to beat LSU Saturday night. The Tigers were able to amass 315 yards on offense against Mississippi State, but three fumbles and two missed field goals led to just three points.
The defense couldn’t have played better than it did last week, only allowing six first downs and 116 total yards, and will need to be on their game again this week.
With the struggles of the offense and a defense that is only allowing a scant 5 PPG thus far, it’s no surprise to NCAA football betting followers that all three of their games have gone under the ‘total’ off the closing NCAA lines.
The college football odds currently have LSU as a three-point road favorite over Auburn. The only place to bet on this game and bet on college football is Sports-Gambling.com Sportsbook, the place for all your betting action.
