Bet The LSU Tigers at -4 Because…
LSU (2-1 SU, 0-3 ATS) didn’t look overpowering by any stretch of the imagination but they managed to get past Mississippi State 23-20 in Week 3 despite never coming close to covering the spread as a 13-point home favorite.
Quarterback Danny Etling completed 19 of 30 passes or 215 yards with one interception while bruising running back Leonard Fournette rushed 28 times for 147 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, LSU held Mississippi State to just 1-for-14 on third downs.
Bet The Auburn Tigers at +4 Because…
Auburn (1-2 SU, 2-1 ATS) was on the wrong end of a 29-16 loss against Texas A&M on Saturday and never came close to covering the spread as a 2.5-point underdog. Quarterback Sean White completed 18 of 27 passes for 126 yards and running back Kamryn Pettway rushed 20 times for 123 yards and one score.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
While LSU may not be a legitimate national title contender this season, but they’re still in much better shape than Auburn, which has issues all over the place, starting at quarterback.
While LSU has compiled an uninspiring 2-6 ATS mark in their last eight games, Auburn is just 5-15-1 ATS in its last 21 games and an even more discouraging 2-12-1 ATS in its last 15 home games
Not only that, but LSU will have the best player on the field in the powerful Fournette and has a decisive advantage when it comes to head coaching.
Auburn wins and covers the college football week 4 betting line.
