Auburn Hosts LSU in Battle of Tigers for College Football Betting

LSU Tigers vs. Auburn Tigers

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn once vowed he would never ever give up play-calling.  Following a brief spell in which he did with disastrous results.  Yet Malzahn has broken that College football betting promise.  He gave play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Chad Morris for 2020.  Malzahn’s reputation was made with a run-oriented offense known as the zone read.  By contrast, Morris is best known for prolific passing attacks.  Gus and Chad go back many years as friends.  But their partnership has been a cumbersome fit.  LSU is a shell of themselves compared to their 2019 championship perfection.

LSU Tigers at Auburn Tigers CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, Bitcoin sportsbook action should be relatively even.  So far both teams have been wildly inconsistent.

LSU Revitalized after Bye Week

Last week LSU returned from a bye week.   And scored a 52-24 betting on college football win and cover over South Carolina as 4.5-point home chalk.  Over the total of 54 was a winner too.  The Tigers outgained South Carolina 541 to 403 in total yards.  So too did LSU have a 29 to 17 first down edge.  The Bayou Bengals powered to 276 yards rushing with 5.1 yards per carry.

As a result, LSU is 2-2 both straight up and against the spread with a 3-1 mark over the total.  The Tigers rank 16th for total offense and 11th for scoring.  Defensively the Tigers rank 83rd overall and 56th for points allowed.

War Eagle Soars at Ole Miss

Last Saturday Auburn rallied to beat Ole Miss 35-28 as 3.5-point road favorites with the game going under 74.  War Eagle won the game with 1:11 remaining on a 58-yard touchdown pass from Bo Nix to Seth Williams.  A big difference was two Ole Miss turnovers.

Now Auburn stands at 3-2 straight up, 2-3 against the spread, and 1-4 under the total.  Offensively the Tigers rank 62nd overall and 70h for scoring.  Defensively War Eagle ranks 52nd overall and 38th for points allowed.  As has been noted the Gus Malzahn “Gus Bus” has been a wild ride.  To illustrate Saturday was another example of how Malzahn does just barely enough to avoid the firing squad.
