The Plugs Game Prediction

💎 Alabama / LSU OVER 163.5 -110

  • Alabama does look like the team to side with in this game because they are home and they have won seven of their last eight games. Bama is coming off of a great win against Auburn and now get a weak LSU team to beat up on. LSU has been struggling, they have lost three of their last four games and coming off of a road loss to Georgia. The Tigers have been way to inconsistent in conference play as well. The only advantage LSU has in this game is that they are the better defensive team in this game. Problem is That this LSU defense will be tested in this game, Alabama is scoring 88 points per game and shooting 48.2% from the field . The Crimson Tide are a very high scoring team and will put up points regardless, but this Bama team does not play any defense at all, so LSU should be able to put up some buckets today also. I think we are going to see both teams get the offenses going and have a fast paced game. We will Take the over here.
