College Football Auburn at LSU

October 20, 2007

College Football Betting Preview - (18) Auburn Tigers at (5) LSU Tigers 9:00 PM EST

LSU is currently a 10-point home favorite with a game total of 42.5 at and most other top online sportsbooks for this SEC showdown on Saturday night. 

Glenn Dorsey of LSU TigersThe Tigers of Louisiana (6-1) will try to bounce back from a tough overtime loss to Kentucky last week when they host SEC West Division rival Auburn tonight.

Last week, then No. 1 LSU blew a 13-point second-half lead at Kentucky and fell in three overtimes, 43-37 as 9-point favorites.

The LSU defense went into last week's game considered by many to be the best in college football.

The Tigers allowed 375 total yards and 43 points to a high-powered offensive football team in three overtimes. They only allowed 53 points through the first six games before last week debacle of 43.

Auburn (5-2) edged out Arkansas last Saturday, 9-7, on a 20-yard field goal with 21 seconds left.

The Tigers limited Heisman Trophy candidate Darren McFadden to just 43 yards on 17 carries in the win.

Auburn averages 25.6 points per game on offense and 15.6 on defense this year. LSU averages 37.7 and gives up 14.1 points per game (Still great considering last week).  

LSU owns a 21-19-1 advantage in the all-time series against Auburn. In last year's meeting, Auburn won 7-3. The last three games in the series have been decided by a total of eight points.

LSU is 6-1 straight up and 3-4 against the spread this year, while Auburn is 5-2 straight up and 4-3 against the spread.

More Trends to Note

Auburn has won and covered four in a row. 5-0 SU in their last 5 games on the road. 4-1 SU in their last 5 games overall.

LSU is 5-0 SU in their last 5 games at home. 13-1 SU in their last 14 games overall. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of LSU's last 6 games at home.

Sportscapper Island Prediction

There should be no reason why this game is not relatively low scoring as both defenses are stout. The LSU defense should bounce back in a big way in this rivalry at home.

I cannot for the life of me see Auburn scoring more than 10 points in this game. I like the Under 42.5 if anything.
