Betting LSU Tigers
The Tigers won and covered in their heretofore only game as underdogs this season. LSU entered last Saturday as, according to the best online sportsbooks, five-point road dogs versus Alabama. The Tigers escaped with a 46-41 win. Starting QB Joe Burrow went 31 of 39 for 393 yards with three TDs. Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase had 140 yards and one TD on six receptions. Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire had 103 yards and three TDs on 20 carries.
LSU’s 4th-ranked total offense is averaging 46.7 points (4th), and 379.3 passing yards (2nd) per game. The Tigers defense allowed Alabama 418 passing yards; LSU’s pass defense ranks 85th in the country (239.8 yards allowed per game).
Let’s peruse some online betting USA trends. LSU is 6-0 ATS in their last six road games. And 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
The over is 5-1 in the Tigers’ last six on the road.
“Ole Miss’ pass defense ranks 117th in the country, making it the worst in the Southeastern Conference. That bodes well for LSU. The Tigers have one of the most prolific passing attacks in college football, and they can lean on that aspect of the offense against a defense that has allowed 274.2 passing yards per game.
Quarterback Joe Burrow needs 150 yards to set the LSU single-season record. He should reach it this weekend,” writes The Advocate. “If LSU can keep Ole Miss in third-and-long situations throughout the game, it can contain the Rebels’ explosiveness.”
Betting Ole Miss Rebels
The Rebels snapped a three-game losing skid with a 41-3 blowout of New Mexico State. Mississippi was a 28-point home fave, per online betting USA odds. Starting QB John Rhys Plumlee went 11 of 17 for 124 yards. Wide receiver Elijah Moore led the receiving unit with 37 yards on three catches. Ole Miss’ passing offense ranks 105th with 187.1 yards through the air per game.
As usual, it was the 13th-ranked rushing offense (247.4 yards per game) that led the charge. Plumlee and Snoop Conner combined for 286 yards on the ground and four TDs on 25 carries. The Rebels outgained NMSU by 413 total yards. Ole Miss allowed just 127 passing yards, a lot fewer than their 274.2 per game average.
The Rebels are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. And 7-16 ATS in their last 23 home games. The under is 4-1 in the Rebels’ last five games overall.
“Wide receivers Miles Battle and Demarcus Gregory are no longer practicing with the Ole Miss football team and are expected to enter the transfer portal, coach Matt Luke confirmed on Wednesday. “I don’t know if they’ve officially entered the portal,” Luke said.
“I’ve talked to both of them, about playing time, obviously. I think it’s highly likely that both of them will enter the portal. It comes down to playing time. But they’re both good kids. I wish both of them the best.” Neither Battle nor Gregory practiced on Wednesday,” reports The Clarion-Ledger. Mississippi doesn’t have a passing offense, so they don’t really need wide receivers.
LSU Tigers vs. Ole Miss Rebels NCAAF Game Pick
I think only a fool would bet against LSU at this juncture in time. I think even the 21.5-point spread is a conservative projection. Take the Tigers and the points.
